Aneuvis: Web-based exploration of numerical chromosomal variation in single cells

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology

Aberrations in chromosomal copy number are one of the most common molecular features observed in cancer. Quantifying the degree of numerical chromosomal variation in single cells across a population of cells is of interest to researchers studying whole chromosomal instability (W-CIN). W-CIN, a state of high numerical chromosomal variation, contributes to treatment resistance in cancer. Here, we introduce aneuvis, a web application that allows users to determine whether numerical chromosomal variation exists between experimental treatment groups. The web interface allows users to upload molecular cytogenetic or processed whole-genome sequencing data in a cell-by-chromosome matrix format and automatically generates visualizations and summary statistics that reflect the degree of numeric chromosomal variability. Aneuvis is the first user-friendly web application to help researchers identify the genetic and environmental perturbations that promote numerical chromosomal variation.
