    Computational tools for copy number variation (CNV) detection using next-generation sequencing data: features and perspectives

    Copy number variation (CNV) is a prevalent form of critical genetic variation that leads to an abnormal number of copies of large genomic regions in a cell. Microarray-based comparative genome hybridization (a...

    Provenance in bioinformatics workflows

    In this work, we used the PROV-DM model to manage data provenance in workflows of genome projects. This provenance model allows the storage of details of one workflow execution, e.g., raw and produced data and...
