Figure S2. Simulated sensitivity estimate based on CNV size and signal-to-noise ratio of data. Data simulated for 1 mb of sequence with one true CNV of length 50 bp, 100 bp, 200 bp, 500 bp, or 100 bp. Random noise introduced in sample coverage data at a level corresponding with given signal-to-noise ratio. 100 replications run at signal-to-noise ratios of one to ten for each CNV size. Sensitivity is the proportion of runs in which the CNV was correctly identified. No false positives were identified when signal-to-noise ratio was greater than two (data not plotted).
