In genomics, Copy Number Variations (CNVs) is a type of structural variation in a genome where sections of the genome are duplicated or deleted. The number of variations (duplications/deletions) varies between individuals in the human population.

The Copy Number Variation Simulator (CNV-Sim) is a simulation tool that extends the functionality of existing next-generation sequencing read simulators to introduce copy number variations in the generated reads. The resulting reads encompass amplifications as well as deletions according to a predefined list of variant regions.
