QuantiSNP is designed to detect rare or de novo copy number alterations in normal DNA samples.

The software is written in MATLAB and have primarily been tested and used on data acquired from Illumina SNP arrays (although QuantiSNP v2.0 may be adaptable for use with Affymetrix 500K/SNP 6.0 data).

Announcement: Discontinuation of software updates and support (31 May 2011)

Please note that QuantiSNP is no longer under active development.

The developers would like to thank users over the years for their support and use of the software.

The software will continue to be made available for use but no updates will be actively be made.

The MATLAB source code is freely available for users who are interested in taking the project forward (see Downloads).

For investigators in cancer genomics, OncoSNP continues to be actively developed. For further details, see the OncoSNP website (https://sites.google.com/site/oncosnp/).
