I have a question regarding the MAF in CNVs. What do people mean when they say CNV with MAF ≤1% ?
I know it's important to check if the CNV is common or not (we can use DGV to do it). But I'm not sure about what the MAF means (in CNVs). Is it a mean (or min) MAF in the region? Or this is just a wrong way to say that 1% is the frequency of the CNV?
Thank you in advance.
