In many applications such as copy number variant (CNV) detection, the goal is to identify short segments on which the observations have different means or medians from the background. Those segments are usually short and hidden in a long sequence, and hence are very challenging to find. We study a super scalable short segment (4S) detection algorithm in this paper. This nonparametric method clusters the locations where the observations exceed a threshold for segment detection. It is computationally efficient …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
