  • Create structures that allow inference of signaling pathways

  • Utilize single-cell data

  • Linear correlations are fast and easy to compute

  • Graphs on the same vertex set are comparable by various algorithms from graph theory

Draw a vertex for each feature (neural network classifier)

For each dsRNA treatment, defined a graph as follows:

Draw an edge if the correlation between corresponding features among single cell data exceeds a threshold

Inference Based on Feature Graphs

This is the unknown signaling network we will infer. For this slide, assume we know the signaling network ahead of time

Intuition for Inference Based on Feature Graphs

Question: What is the relationship between feature graphs of genes in a signaling pathway?

[F1, F2]

RNAi Gene C

Expect feature graph to have a relatively small number of edges

Feature graph is approximately the intersection of the feature graphs for RNAi A and RNAi B

RNAi Gene A

[F1, F2, F4]

[F1, F2, F3]

Expect feature graph to have relatively large number of edges

RNAi Gene B

Expect feature graph to have a relatively large number of edges

Focus on Details of Feature Graph Construction

F=150 features per cell

(future data sets will be larger)

For each FG, need to compute linear correlation for C=50 data points for all F*(F-1)/2=150*149/2 pairs of features.

Since there are N = 250 TCs, there are a total of N*F*(F-1)/2 linear correlations to compute.

N =250 Treatment Conditions (TCs)

Draw a vertex for each feature (neural network classifier)

Drosophila Data Set

For each dsRNAtreatment (TC), defined a graph as follows:

C = 50 cells per TC

Draw an edge if the correlation between corresponding features among single cell data exceeds a threshold

How to compute all pairwise correlations efficiently?

matmul of FxC and CxF

Computation is dominated by matmul of FxC and CxF

N =250 Treatment Conditions (TCs)

Drosophila Data Set

matmul of Fx1 and 1xF

C = 50 cells per TC

**Matlab built-in “corr” does not work with ppeval

Summary and Conclusions

  • Feature graph construction depends on computation of numerous linear correlations

  • Parallelization was implemented

    • But speed-ups were not realized (why not?)

    • In fact, slower because of time required to move data to/from the server

    • Speed-ups are realized for *very* large data sets because the server can handle larger data more smoothly than a typical PC. But this is not due to parallelization, rather due to hard drive usage.

  • Why didn’t parallelization result in gains in speed?

    • Interactive Supercomputing doesn’t preallocate matrices in Matlab

    • Structure of problem?

    • Coding?
