CNV Database

The Copy Number Variation project at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) represents an effort to identify all frequent copy number variations (CNVs) that exist in the human genome. Our ongoing research uses high-resolution genome-wide scanning and highly accurate computational approaches. CNV’s found within this database have been identified from 2,026 healthy children recruited within CHOP’s pediatric practice network. These efforts have yielded the first high resolution CNV map of the human genome, providing access to a data source that allows for effective assessment of the role of CNVs in human variation and disease susceptibility.
