Copy number variations (CNVs) are significant causes of many human cancers and genetic diseases. The detection of CNVs has become a common method by which to analyze human diseases using next-generation sequencing (NGS) data. However, effective detection of insignificant CNVs is still a challenging task. In this study, we propose a new detection method, RKDOSCNV, to meet the need. RKDOSCNV uses kernel density estimation method to evaluate the local kernel density distribution of each read depth segment (RDS) based on an expanded nearest neighbor (k-nearest neighbors, reverse nearest neighbors, and shared nearest neighbors of each RDS) data set, and assigns a relative kernel density outlier score (RKDOS) for each RDS. According to the RKDOS profile, RKDOSCNV predicts the candidate CNVs by choosing a reasonable threshold, which it uses split read approach to correct the boundaries of candidate CNVs. The performance of RKDOSCNV is assessed by comparing it with several current popular methods via experiments with simulated and real data at different tumor purity levels. The experimental results verify that the performance of RKDOSCNV is superior to that of several other methods. In summary, RKDOSCNV is a simple and effective method for the detection of CNVs from whole genome sequencing (WGS) data, especially for samples with low tumor purity.
