Dear all,

when analyzing whole genome sequences for the loss of heterozygozity (LoH) regions, what algorithms would you recommend to use ?

thank you, and happy holidays, and a Merry Christmas !

I've only worked with SNP data for LOH, but have suggested the following publications for allele-specific copy number analysis. Hopefully someone else can lend some experience with these or other methods. Good luck!
