cnvkit_call - Call copy number variants from segmented log2 ratios.

Copy ratios (.cnr or .cns).

Re-center the log2 ratio values using this estimator of the center or average value. ('median' if no argument given.)
Subtract a constant number from all log2 values. For "manual" re-centering, in case the --center option gives unsatisfactory results.)
Merge segments flagged by the specified filter(s) with the adjacent segment(s).
Calling method. [Default: threshold]
Hard thresholds for calling each integer copy number, separated by commas. Use the '=' sign on the command line, e.g.: -t=-1,0,1 [Default: -1.1,-0.25,0.2,0.7]
Ploidy of the sample cells. [Default: 2]
Estimated tumor cell fraction, a.k.a. purity or cellularity.
Drop very-low-coverage bins before segmentation to avoid false-positive deletions in poor-quality tumor samples.
Specify the sample's chromosomal sex as male or female. (Otherwise guessed from X and Y coverage).
Was a male reference used? If so, expect half ploidy on chrX and chrY; otherwise, only chrY has half ploidy. In CNVkit, if a male reference was used, the "neutral" copy number (ploidy) of chrX is 1; chrY is haploid for either reference sex.
Output table file name (CNR-like table of segments, .cns).

VCF file name containing variants for calculation of b-allele frequencies.
Name of the sample in the VCF (-v/--vcf) to use for b-allele frequency extraction.
Corresponding normal sample ID in the input VCF (-v/--vcf). This sample is used to select only germline SNVs to calculate b-allele frequencies.
Minimum read depth for a SNV to be used in the b-allele frequency calculation. [Default: 20]
Ignore VCF's genotypes (GT field) and instead infer zygosity from allele frequencies. [Default if used without a number: 0.25]
