BreakPtr (abbrev. for Break-Pointer) is a computational approach for segmenting CGH data and analyzing chromosomal DNA sequence. Its Finder predicts breakpoints of large deletions and amplifications. Its Annotator identifies actual dosage ratios. And its Flagger identifies regions where probe cross-hybridization has presumably occurred.
