Disclosed are a method of detecting a pre-determined event in a nucleic acid sample and a system thereof. The method of detecting the pre-determined event in the nucleic acid sample comprises the following steps: constructing a sequencing-library for the nucleic acid sample; sequencing the sequencing-library to obtain a sequencing result consisting of a plurality of sequencing data; determining the sequencing data from a pre-determined region; and determining an occurrence of the pre-determined event in the nucleic acid sample based on a composition of the sequencing data from the pre-determined region.

Disclosed are a method and a system for determining genome copy number variation, which relates to the technical field of bioinformatics. The method comprises obtaining reads; determining sequence labels according to the reads; counting the number of sequence labels falling into each window; performing GC correction on the sequence label number of each window and a correction according to an expected sequence label number adjusted by a control set to obtain a corrected sequence label number; selecting a demarcation point with a small significance value as a candidate CNV breaking point; rejecting the least significant candidate CNV breaking point at every turn, updating difference significance values of two candidate CNV breaking points on the left and right of the rejected candidate CNV breaking point and performing cyclic iteration until difference significance values of all candidate CNV breaking points are smaller than a termination threshold value, thereby determining a CNV breaking point. The method and the system the present invention have clinical feasibility, and can precisely detect a micro-deletion/micro-duplication area of 0.5 M under the situation of using data of about 50 M.
