The GLAD algorithm provides very good results as shown in Tab 1 for both the detection of breakpoints step and the region assignment step. Our algorithm performs better than other methods on a public reference data set (Snijders et al., 2001).
|Data type||Breakpoints detected||Status correctly assigned|
|karyotyping results (Snijders et al., 2001)||100%||99.8%|
|manually analyzed profiles||94%||status are unavailable|
