Table 6 Assignment of CNV caller results into TP, FP, TN, and FN as defined by FISH, WGS, or SNP arrays. Evaluation was performed separately for (A) deletions and (B) amplifications

From: CNV Radar: an improved method for somatic copy number alteration characterization in oncology

A.   True State   
CNV   Neutral Amplification Deletion
State Neutral TN TN FN
Called Amplification TN TN FN
  Deletion FP FP TP
B. True State
CNV   Neutral Amplification Deletion
State Neutral TN FN TN
Called Amplification FP TP FP
  Deletion TN FN TN
  1. CNV copy number variation; TP true positive; FP false positive; TN true negative; FN false negative; FISH fluorescence in situ hybridization; WGS whole genome sequencing; SNP single nucleotide polymorphism
