Assessing variations in DNA copy number is crucial for understanding constitutional or somatic diseases, particularly cancers. The recently devel- opedarray-CGH(comparativegenomichybridization) technology allows this to be investigated at the genomic level. We report the availability of a web tool for analysing array-CGH data. CAPweb (CGH array Analysis Platform on the Web) is intended as a user-friendly tool enabling biologists to completely analyseCGHarraysfromtherawdatatothevisualiza- tion and biological interpretation. The user typically performs the following bioinformatics steps of a CGH arrayprojectwithinCAPweb:thesecureuploadofthe results of CGH array image analysis and of the array annotation (genomic position of the probes); first level analysis of each array, including automatic nor- malization of the data (for correcting experimental biases), breakpoint detection and status assignment (gain, loss or normal); validation or deletion of the analysis based on a summary report and quality cri- teria; visualization and biological analysis of the genomic profiles and results through a user-friendly interface. CAPweb is accessible at http://bioinfo.
