2. Introduction • Despite complex 3-D structure, biological molecules have primary linear sequence (DNA, RNA, protein) or have linear sequence of features (CpG islands, models of exons, introns, regulatory regions, genes) • Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) are probabilistic models for processes which transition through a discrete set of states, each emitting a symbol (probabilistic finite state machine) • HMMs exhibit the ‘Markov property:’ the conditional probability distribution of future states of the process depends only upon the present state (memory-less) • Linear sequence of molecules/features ismodelled as a path through states of the HMMwhich emit the sequence of molecules/features • Actual state is hidden and observed only through output symbols Andrey Markov 1856-1922 Center for Genes, Environment, and Health

3. Hidden Markov Model • Finite set of N states X • Finite set of M observations O • Parameter set λ = (A, B, π) • Initial state distribution πi = Pr(X1 = i) • Transition probability aij = Pr(Xt=j | Xt-1 = i) • Emission probability bik = Pr(Ot=k | Xt = i) Example: N=3, M=2 π=(0.25, 0.55, 0.2) A= B = 1 2 3 Center for Genes, Environment, and Health

4. Hidden Markov Model X X Hidden Markov Model (HMM) • Finite set of N states X • Finite set of M observations O • Parameter set λ = (A, B, π) • Initial state distribution πi = Pr(X1 = i) • Transition probability aij = Pr(Xt=j | Xt-1 = i) • Emission probability bik = Pr(Ot=k | Xt = i) t-1 t O O t t-1 Example: N=3, M=2 π=(0.25, 0.55, 0.2) A= B = 1 2 3 Center for Genes, Environment, and Health

6. Three basic problems of HMMs • Given the observation sequence O=O1,O2,…,On, how do we compute Pr(O| λ)? • Given the observation sequence, how do we choose the corresponding state sequence X=X1,X2,…,Xn which is optimal? • How do we adjust the model parameters to maximize Pr(O| λ)? Center for Genes, Environment, and Health

7. Example: • πi = Pr(X1 = i) • aij = Pr(Xt=j | Xt-1 = i) • bik = Pr(Ot=k | Xt = i) • Probability of O is sum over all state sequencesPr(O|λ) = ∑all X Pr(O|X, λ) Pr(X|λ) = ∑all Xπx1 bx1o1ax1x2bx2o2 . . . axn-1xnbxnon • Efficient dynamic programming algorithm to do this: Forward algorithm (Baum and Welch) N=3, M=2 π=(0.25, 0.55, 0.2) A= B = 1 2 3 Center for Genes, Environment, and Health

20. Parameter estimation by Baum-Welch Forward Backward Algorithm • Forward variable αt(i) =Pr(O1..t,Xt=i | λ) • Backward variable βt(i) =Pr(Ot+1..N|Xt=i, λ) Rabiner 1989

21. Homology HMM • Gene recognition, classify to identify distant homologs • Common Ancestral Sequence • Parameter set λ = (A, B, π), strict left-right model • Specially defined set of states: start, stop, match, insert, delete • For initial state distribution π, use ‘start’ state • For transition matrix A use global transition probabilities • For emission matrix B • Match, site-specific emission probabilities • Insert (relative to ancestor), global emission probs • Delete, emit nothing • Multiple Sequence Alignments Adapted from David Pollock’s

24. Ungapped blocks Ungapped blocks where insertion states model intervening sequence between blocks Insert/delete states allowed anywhere Allow multiple domains,sequence fragments Eddy, 1998 Center for Genes, Environment, and Health

25. Homology HMM • Uses • Find homologs to profile HMM in database • Score sequences for match to HMM • Not always Pr(O| λ) since some areas may highly diverge • Sometimes use ‘highest scoring subsequence’ • Goal is to find homologs in database • Classify sequence using libraryof profile HMMs • Compare alternative models • Alignment of additional sequences • Structural alignment when alphabet is secondarystructure symbols so can do fold-recognition, etc Adapted from David Pollock’s

26. Why Hidden Markov Models for MSA? • Multiple sequence alignment as consensus • May have substitutions, not all AA are equal • Could use regular expressions but how to handle indels? • What about variable-length members of family?

27. Why Hidden Markov Models? • Rather than consensus sequence which describes the most common amino acid per position, HMMs allow more than one amino acid to appear at each position • Rather than profiles as position specific scoring matrices (PSSM) which assign a probability to each amino acid in each position of the domain and slide fixed-length profile along a longer sequence to calculate score, HMMs model probability of variable length sequences • Rather than regular expressions which can capture variable length sequences yet specify a limited subset of amino acids per position, HMMs quantify difference among using different amino acids at each position Center for Genes, Environment, and Health

28. Model Comparison • Based on • For ML, take • Usually to avoid numeric error • For heuristics, “score” is • For Bayesian, calculate • Uses ‘prior’ information on parameters Adapted from David Pollock’s

29. Parameters, • Types of parameters • Amino acid distributions for positions (match states) • Global AA distributions for insert states • Order of match states • Transition probabilities • Phylogenetic tree topology and branch lengths • Hidden states (integrate or augment) • Wander parameter space (search) • Maximize, or move according to posterior probability (Bayes) Adapted from David Pollock’s

30. Expectation Maximization (EM) • Classic algorithm to fit probabilistic model parameters with unobservable states • Two Stages • Maximize • If know hidden variables (states), maximize model parameters with respect to that knowledge • Expectation • If know model parameters, find expected values of the hidden variables (states) • Works well even with e.g., Bayesian to find near-equilibrium space Adapted from David Pollock’s

31. Homology HMM EM • Start with heuristic MSA (e.g., ClustalW) • Maximize • Match states are residues aligned in most sequences • Amino acid frequencies observed in columns • Expectation • Realign all the sequences given model • Repeat until convergence • Problems: Local, not global optimization • Use procedures to check how it worked Adapted from David Pollock’s

32. Model Comparison • Determining significance depends on comparing two models (family vs non-family) • Usually null model, H0, and test model, H1 • Models are nested if H0 is a subset of H1 • If not nested • Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) [similar to empirical Bayes] or • Bayes Factor (BF) [but be careful] • Generating a null distribution of statistic • Z-factor, bootstrapping, , parametric bootstrapping, posterior predictive Adapted from David Pollock’s

33. Z Test Method • Database of known negative controls • E.g., non-homologous (NH) sequences • Assume NH scores • i.e., you are modeling known NH sequence scores as a normal distribution • Set appropriate significance level for multiple comparisons (more below) • Problems • Is homology certain? • Is it the appropriate null model? • Normal distribution often not a good approximation • Parameter control hard: e.g., length distribution Adapted from David Pollock’s

34. Bootstrapping and Parametric Models • Random sequence sampled from the same set of emission probability distributions • Same length is easy • Bootstrapping is re-sampling columns • Parametric uses estimated frequencies, may include variance, tree, etc. • More flexible, can have more complex null • Pseudocounts of global frequencies if data limit • Insertions relatively hard to model • What frequencies for insert states? Global? Adapted from David Pollock’s

35. Homology HMM Resources • UCSC (Haussler) • SAM: align, secondary structure predictions, HMM parameters, etc. • WUSTL/Janelia (Eddy) • Pfam: database of pre-computed HMM alignments for various proteins • HMMer: program for building HMMs Adapted from David Pollock’s
