I'm PhD student through the University of Tasmania in the Tasmanian Inherited Cancer Centre at the Menzies Research Institute Tasmania.

My project involves using WGS sequences of families with multiple generations affected by blood cancers to try and identify inherited mutations predisposing to blood cancer development.

... I'm trying to do some CNV calling from Illumina Omni2.5 array data using penncnv. My array data is from a few different 'versions' of the Omni2.5 arrays (some from 2011, some from 2013 and some from 2014) so the SNP names have changed between versions as dbSNP is updated. I've tried combining the 2 ...
