Canvas is a tool for calling copy number variants (CNVs) from human DNA sequencing data. It can work either with germline data, or paired tumor/normal samples. Its primary input is aligned reads (in .bam format), and its primary output is a report (in a .vcf file) giving the copy number status of the genome.
