Methods For Non-invasive Assessment Of Copy Number Alterations

Abstract

Technology provided herein relates in part to methods, processes, machines and apparatuses for non-invasive assessment of copy number alterations. In particular, a method is provided for determining presence or absence of a copy number alteration for a test subject. The method includes providing a set of sequence reads. The sequence reads may be obtained from circulating cell free sample nucleic acid from a test sample obtained from the test subject, and the circulating cell free sample nucleic acid may be captured by probe oligonucleotides under hybridization conditions. The method further includes determining a probe coverage quantification of the sequence reads for the probe oligonucleotides and determining the presence or absence of a copy number alteration in the circulating cell free sample nucleic acid based on the probe coverage quantification of the sequence reads for the probe oligonucleotides for the test sample.
