 Note: SNPs that have no copy number alterations relative to the diploid state (true negative SNPs) are defined by a QPCR derived copy number between 1.5 and 2.5. SNPs that have copy number alterations (true positive SNPs) are defined by a QPCR derived copy number less than 1.5 or greater than 2.5. There are in total 10 true negatives among all 69 SNPs. For the 55 SNPs that are common to CNAG, there are 9 true negatives. The calculations of sensitivity and specificity compare QPCR values to algorithm outputs in which algorithmdefined true negatives are the SNPs with an estimated copy number between 1.5 and 2.5 and algorithmdefined true positives are the SNPs with an estimated copy number less than 1.5 or greater than 2.5. In the CARAT treepartitioning (pvalue) comparison, the algorithm defined negative SNPs are those with pvalue > 0.005 and algorithm defined positive SNPs are those with pvalue < 0.005. Numerical values without parentheses are derived from comparisons using only the 55 SNPs that are in common with CNAG while the numbers inside parentheses are derived from comparisons using all 69 SNPs.
