Normalization is needed to minimize non-biological variation between arrays

Normalization methods

  • Current software uses linear normalization

  • Nonlinear curve fitting based on scatter plot is still inadequate because 1) effects of differentially expressed genes may be “normalized” 2) regression phenomenon and asymmetry

Regression phenomenon and asymmetry

Invariant set normalization method

  • A set of points (xi, yi) is said to be order-preserving if yi < yj whenever xi < xj

  • The maximal order-preserving subset can be obtained by dynamic programming

  • If a gene is really differentially expressed, it’s cells tend not to be included into an large order-preserving subset

  • Our method is based on an approximately order preserving subset, called “Invariant set”

Fig. 2.9 Normalization of a pair of replicated arrays

Figure 2.10. Two different samples. The smoothing spline in (A) is affected by several points at the lower-right corner, which might belong to differentially expressed genes. Whereas the “invariant set” does not include these points when determining normalization curve, leading to a different normalization relationship at the high end.

Data for one probe set, one array

PM/MM differences eliminate background and cross-hybridization signals

Validation experiments suggest Average Differences are linear to mRNA concentrations at certain dynamic range

Lockhart et al. (1996) Nature Genetics, Vol 14: 1675-1680

Data for one gene in many arrays

Box plot showing array and probe effects

Modeling probe effects

1) Probes sequence has different hybridization efficiency

2) cross hybridization, SNP, alternative splicing

3) Probe position effect, 3’ bias

Probe effects can dominate biological variation of interest

Previous method : use multiple probes, average to reduce “noise”

Our methods: statistical models for probe effects, “meta-analysis”, learning algorithms, estimation of expression level conditional on knowledge of probe effect

Principal component analysis (42 points in 20-space) suggests the data matrix has approx. rank 1

Model for one gene in multiple arrays

Figure 1.1. Black curves are the PM and MM data of gene A in the first 6 arrays. Light curves are the fitted values to model (1). Probe pairs are labeled 1 to 20 on the horizontal axis.

Using PM/MM Differences

  • PM/MM differences eliminate most background and cross-hybridization signals

  • Affyemtrix’s GeneChip software is using average differences as basis for determining fold changes, and their validation showed average differences are linear to mRNA concentrations at certain dynamic range

Model for PM/MM differences (1.2)

Figure 1.2. Black curves are the PM-MM difference data of gene A in the first 6 arrays. Light curves are the fitted values to model (2).

Residuals of the fitting

Model fitting amounts to fixing ’s and regress to estimate 

Fig 1.5 Array outlier: large standard errors of 4

Fig. 1.6 Probe outlier: large standard errors of 17

Also see gene 6898

Fig. 1.4 Array outlier image shows that the model automatically handles image contamination

Compare Model-based expression with Average Difference

  • The array set 5 has 29 pair of arrays replicated at split-mRNA level

  • The differences between the replicated arrays provides a opportunity to assess different expression calculation method

Figure 2.5. Log (base 10) expression indexes of a pair of replicate arrays (array 1 and 2 of array set 5) for MBEI method (A) and AD method (B). The center line is y=x, and the flanking lines indicate the difference of a factor of two.

Functional significant clusters

  • Statistical analysis of high-density oligonucleotide arrays: a multiplicative noise model

  • R. Sasik and J. Corbeil (UCSF)

Problems with LWR model:

  • LWR model:

  • The expression index can still be negative.

  • Genes with negative index can still be classified as present.

Statistical model:

  • Based on the same assumption as the LW model, that PM intensity is directly proportional to the concentration ciof the transcript, . Write the relation in the form

  • Our model is

  • where

  • Least squared estimation of the parameters.

  • Constraint:

Algorithm -- When analyzing a batch of ns samples:

  • Normalize all samples to the first one on the list by requiring the sum of all PM intensities be the same as that of the first sample.

  • Select the background probes using Naef’s method (MM is used in this step).

  • Subtract the median of the background probe intensity from every PM probe in the array.

  • Probes that become negative are eliminated.

  • Fit the model and probes contributes most to the sum of squares are eliminated.

  • Normalize again and repeat 1-5, until the distribution of residuals is Gaussian.

A background plus signal model:

  • Here represents background signal caused by optical noise and non-specific binding.

  • The mean background level is represented with and the random component with .

  • The transcript signal contains a probe affinity effect , the log expression measures , and an error term.

  • Both error terms and are independent standard normal.

Expression index:

  • A naïve estimate of is given by

    with the mode of the log2(MM) distribution.

  • An estimate of this distribution is obtained using a density kernel estimate.
