I am looking for the current state-of-the-art tools/practices for CNV (structural variation) detection/analysis for family (trio) data produced by Illumina.

I will have data obtained on Illumina SNP arrays as well as from Illumina whole exome sequencing and whole-genome sequencing.

What would be the best tools to apply for each technology? Any advice/suggestion is highly appreciated:)

Thank you!

We used XHMM for Whole Exome data. There is a step-by-step guide to get to CNV calls from BAM files here. Also, plink/seq has a cnv-denovo utility (I think that's what it's called) to detect de novo and transmitted CNVs. This paper should be useful.
