The numbers in parenthesis show the estimates after family adjustments. The qPCR estimates are rounded off the nearest integer and shifted to correspond to the CGH array estimates, which designate the cluster closest to zero as the two copy group. The overall accuracy goes from 70% to 77% for region 1 (chr19:62166726-62167416) and from 72% to 82% for region 2 (chr4:43446373-43446839).
