karyotapR enables analysis of DNA copy number (aneuploidy) using data produced by the KaryoTap method. Users can easily parse, manipulate, and visualize datasets produced from the automated ‘Tapestri Pipeline’, with support for normalization, clustering, and copy number calling. Functions are also available to deconvolute multiplexed samples by genotype and parsing barcoded reads from exogenous lentiviral constructs.

KaryoTap combines custom genome-wide targeted DNA sequencing panels for the Mission Bio Tapestri system with a Gaussian mixture model framework for calling copy number.
