Hi Since I am a beginer in the field of bioinformatic, i do not know the best tool for CNV detection extracted from NGS data. Can someone tell me which is the most relevant tool for CNV analysis that can be used for Windows users and is free of charge?
If you are really interested in bioinformatics then you MUST start using UNIX based OS, most tools nowadays are developed to be run in command line (as it can be integrated into a pipeline easily). Few options for windows OS would be:
- Install virtual machine and then download Biolinux and use it with virtual box.
- Use Galaxy web platform.
There are other paid options like CLC Genomics workbench. But as I mentioned earlier, the options for windows based users are very limited.
