Hi there,

GenomeBrowse does not have any Copy Number analysis built-in, but the ploidy of the X chromosome is most likely visible at the right zoom level.

In general, you can zoom out and see the large-scale coverage depth at a chromosome level in GeomeBrowser. While the individual coverage will be noisy in regions, a general sense of the average depth between chromosome 22 and X would indicate if you have one, two or more copies of X.

Please be aware that GenomeBrowse is for education and academic use only and should not be considered diagnostic software.
