SUMMARY: The expansion of targeted panel sequencing efforts has created opportunities for large-scale genomic analysis, but tools for copy-number quantification on panel data are lacking. We introduce ASCETS, a method for the efficient quantitation of arm and chromosome-level copy-number changes from targeted sequencing data.

AVAILABILITY: ASCETS is implemented in R and is freely available to non-commercial users on GitHub:, along with detailed documentation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supplementary data are available at Bioinformatics online.
