Summary: We describe a tool, called aCGH-Smooth, for the automated identification of breakpoints and smoothing of microarray comparative genomic hybridization (array CGH) data. aCGH-Smooth is written in visual C++, has a user-friendly interface including a visualization of the results and user-defined parameters adapting the performance of data smoothing and breakpoint recognition. aCGH-Smooth can handle array-CGH data generated by all array-CGH platforms: BAC, PAC, cosmid, cDNA and oligo CGH arrays. The tool has been successfully applied to real-life data. © Oxford University Press 2004; all rights reserved.
