Microarray Design and Analysis

Jeremy D. Glasner

Genetics 875

November 20, 2007

slide2

What is a Microarray?

A collection of DNA sequences arrayed on a solid substrate

usually with thousands of individual DNA spots

slide3

Gene expression analysis

Massively parallel biochemistry aimed

at measuring RNA levels

slide4

Why do gene expression analysis?

  • Predict new gene functions by expression patterns
  • Determine the effect of a drug on gene expression
  • Compare a mutant strain to wild-type
  • Identify an expression signature for a cancer type
  • Find the targets of a transcriptional regulator
  • Measure the half-lives of RNAs in the cell

Quality Filtering of Data

From Tseng et al., 2001. NAR 29(12):2549-2557

slide26

Data Normalization

Data Normalization is necessary if the overall signal differs between experiments and can be complicated if the relationship is nonlinear.

Internal controls can also be used for normalization.

Data from Schadt et al 2001. Journal of Cellular Biochemistry Supplement 37:120-125.

slide30

Normalization Methods

Assume linear relationship

Apply non-linear normalization

Normalize to “house-keeping genes”

Normalize to internal Standards

slide32

Detecting differential expression

Determine which changes are significant:

Fixed cutoff (fold-change>4)

Replication allows assessment of variability

Common statistics such as the t-test are often used for gene expression data. Significance of the value is then determined by referring to the t distribution. This assumes that the data is normally distributed, which may not be true.

Gene expression experiments may require thousands of statistical tests and significance should be adjusted to reflect this. A standard Bonferroni correction is the p-value multiplied by the number of tests but is likely too conservative.
