I've seen a few papers use RNA-seq data to detect copy number info. However, it's always using "custom scripts" in my experience. Is there a publicly available tool for doing that?

I found inferCNV, but that is designed for single-cell data which will have a very different profile from bulk RNA-seq.

To my amazement, Aviv Regev's lab did it, but I cannot find the paper at the moment (please link it here if you find it!). Suffice to say, it's a complex process, and one which produces only very rough outlines of the CN landscape. You will probably only pick up very large events (multi-Mb), and it will likely depend on having a large cohort with which to average out the noise inherent in expression.

Is this the paper you are referring to?

Yeah, I saw Aviv talk at a conference, but that seems like the right paper. Even more flabbergasted that it works with single-cell RNAseq. Amazing stuff!
