to identify CNVs using WES data, I am trying to use WES data from a new protocol of Agilent Whole Exon V7 + CNV backbone which has additional regions added to the panel which is supposed to enable CNV for many known CNV regions. for this analysis I have used GATK for the old protocols but since this protocol has additional regions, what would be the best tool for CNV detection?

There are countless CNV detection programs out there, but two that I, personally, hold in high regard are Control FREEC and HMMcopy.

I mean...you can even switch on off-target reads (~50KB should be fine) and run ClinCNV.... but well it is better to be used with >20 samples available...(can run for >10, but stat models feel better when there are >20)

(not necessary to switch on off-targets since you have backbone - but why not, these reads are for free)
