Does any one have a recommendation of a method or a program to convert X and Y intensities from a genotyping final report text file to their Log R ratio and B allele frequency estimates.

The LRR and BAF were not provided in the final report and I dont have access to Illumina Beadstudio. I was hoping to complete cnv analysis if possible

Any help appreciated.

Final report file format

Show us some lines from your report. Usuallu beadstudio can perform CNV and LOH and give reports with LRR and BAF values with plots else show us what kind of information you posses and what you intend to perform and describe with a bit more detail your question then people can be more helpful.

Apologies I have attached the final report format. I was hoping to complete CNV analysis.

BAF = Y / (X + Y)
LRR = log2( (X + Y)sampleOfInterest / (X+Y)baselineSample)

But you might want to do some normalization first, possbily with beadstudio or with tQn normalization. See here

Thank you very much for your help. Is there a recommendation for choosing the baseline sample?

A sample for which you now the ploidy = 2. So any non-cancer sample would be fine. I think most of the time in a SNP-array run such a sample is included, for example a male and female reference DNA sample. It depends all on your research context but most of the time, best scenario is when you have a patient / family member matched control, because this way you can distinghuish between somatic / de novo / germ line copy number variants
