Distance Any matching: the DNA copy number data of features (mapping to the same chromosome as the gene) is averaged with weights reciprocal to their distance to the gene. In the top panel the distances between the features’ and the gene’s midpoints are represented by the horizontal solid arrows. In the bottom panel, the features’ DNA copy number data are averaged, the width of the arrows reflect the weights (reciprocal to the distances) of each feature’s contribution to the average.
