I'm have used Paired parent specific circular binary segmentation (PSCBS) to segment copy number calls made from SNP6 data and obtain copy numbers as well as LOH calls. I'm however having trouble interpreting some of the columns in the segmentation file. (tcnNbrOfLoci, tcnNbrOfSNPs, tcnNbrOfHets, dhNbrOfLoci). I'm unable to find the documentation that clarifies what these columns mean. I'll be grateful for any information on these columns or directions to the appropriate documentation.

I have also attached an snippet of the actual segmentation file for clarification.

Thanking You, Vakul

The reference manual and two example code vignettes are on the CRAN page for PSCBS:

The peer-reviewed paper is quite readable and explains the core concepts well, e.g. total copy number (TCN), runs of homozygosity (ROH), and how they're calculated.
