Copy-number tree problem. As input we are given the copy-number profiles of four leaves, each profile is an integer vector that is inferred from data; e.g. the coverage of mapped reads (blue segments). The tree topology and profiles at internal vertices are found to minimize the total number of amplifications (green bars) and deletions (red bars). The displayed scenario has 14 total events.
