PICNIC (Predicting Integral Copy Numbers In Cancer) is an algorithm designed to identify copy number segments and genotypes in cancer using a SNP6 'cel' file as input.
All PICNIC code has been made available under a BSD license and shall continue to be developed under this agreement. This code requires Matlab. To use the algorithm without Matlab, use picnic_gui_full. To just normalize a .CEL file, use picnic_gui_short.
PICNIC has now been updated to cater for primary tissues that contain normal contamination in addition to cell lines.
