Presentation Transcript

What is a DNA Microarray?

- Also known as DNA Chip
- Allows simultaneous measurement of the level of transcription for every gene in a genome (gene expression)
- Transcription?
- Process of copying of DNA into messenger RNA (mRNA)
- Environment dependant!
- Microarray detects mRNA, or rather the more stable cDNA

Patrick Schmid

How do we manufacture a microarray?

- Start with individual genes, e.g. the ~6,200 genes of the yeast genome
- Amplify all of them using polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
- “Spot” them on a medium, e.g. an ordinary glass microscope slide
- Each spot is about 100 µm in diameter
- Spotting is done by a robot
- Complex and potentially expensive task

Patrick Schmid

Example

- Remember the flash animation?
- Yeast
- Grow in aerobic and anaerobic environment
- Different genes will be activated in order to adapt to each environment
- Extract mRNA
- Convert mRNA into colored cDNA (fluorescently labeled)

Patrick Schmid

Example (cont.)

- Mix cDNA together
- Hybridize cDNA with array
- Each cDNA sequence hybridizes specifically with the corresponding gene sequence in the array
- Wash unhybridized cDNA off
- Read array with laser
- Analyze images

Patrick Schmid

Reading an array

- Laser scans array and produces images
- One laser for each color, e.g. one for green, one for red
- Image analysis, main tasks:
- Noise suppression
- Spot localization and detection, including the extraction of the background intensity, the spot position, and the spot boundary and size
- Data quantification and quality assessment
- Image Analysis is a book on its own:
- Kamberova, G. & Shah, S. “DNA Array Image Analysis Nuts & Bolts“. DNA Press LLC, 2002

Patrick Schmid

Y-fold

- Biologists rather deal with folds than with ratios
- A fold is nothing else than saying “times”
- We express it either as a Y-fold repression, or a Y-fold induction
- It is calculated by taking the inverse of the ratio
- Ratio of 0.33 = 3-fold repression
- Ratio of 10 = 10-fold induction
- Fractional ratios can cause problems with techniques of analyzing and comparing gene expression patterns

Patrick Schmid

Color Coding

- Tables are difficult to read
- Data is presented with a color scale
- Coding scheme:
- Green = repressed (less mRNA) gene in experiment
- Red = induced (more mRNA) gene in experiment
- Black = no change (1:1 ratio)
- Or
- Green = control condition (e.g. aerobic)
- Red = experimental condition (e.g. anaerobic)
- We only use ratio

Campbell & Heyer, 2003

Patrick Schmid

Logarithmic transformation

- log2 is commonly used
- Sometimes log10 is used
- Example:
- log2(0.0625) = log2(1/16) = log2(1) – log2(16) = -log2(16) = -4
- log2 transformations ease identification of doublings or halvings in ratios
- log10 transformations ease identification of order of magnitude changes
- Key attribute: equally sized induction and repression receive equal treatment visually and mathematically

Patrick Schmid

Complication: Time Series

- Biologists care more about the process of adaptation than about the end result
- For example, measure every 2 hours for 10 hours (depletion of oxygen)
- 31,000 gene expression ratios
- Or 6,200 different graphs with five data points each
- Question: Are there any genes that responded in similar ways to the depletion of oxygen?

Patrick Schmid

Pearson Correlation Coefficient r

- Gene expression over time is a vector, e.g. for gene C: (0, 3, 3.58, 4, 3.58, 3)
- Given two vectors X and Y that contain N elements, we calculate r as follows:

Cho & Won, 2003

Patrick Schmid

Pearson Correlation Coefficient r (cont.)

- X = Gene C = (0, 3.00, 3.58, 4, 3.58, 3)Y = Gene D = (0, 1.58, 2.00, 2, 1.58, 1)
- ∑XY = (0)(0)+(3)(1.58)+(3.58)(2)+(4)(2)+(3.58)(1.58)+(3)(1) = 28.5564
- ∑X = 3+3.58+4+3.58+3 = 17.16
- ∑X2 = 32+3.582+42+3.582+32 = 59.6328
- ∑Y = 1.58+2+2+1.58+1 = 8.16
- ∑Y2 = 1.582+22+22+1.582+12 = 13.9928
- N = 6
- ∑XY – ∑X∑Y/N = 28.5564 – (17.16)(8.16)/6 = 5.2188
- ∑X2 – (∑X)2/N = 59.6328 – (17.16)2/6 = 10.5552
- ∑Y2 – (∑Y)2/N = 13.9928 – (8.16)2/6 = 2.8952
- r = 5.2188 / sqrt((10.5552)(2.8952)) = 0.944

Patrick Schmid

Hierarchical Clustering

- Algorithm:
- First, find the two most similar genes in the entire set of genes. Join these together into a cluster. Now join the next two most similar objects (an object can be a gene or a cluster), forming a new cluster. Add the new cluster to the list of available objects, and remove the two objects used to form the new cluster. Continue this process, joining objects in the order of their similarity to one another, until there is only one object on the list – a single cluster containing all genes.(Campbell & Heyer, 2003)

- Average observations
- Gene D: (0.94+0.84)/2 = 0.89
- Gene F: (-0.40+(-0.57))/2 = -0.485
- Gene G: (0.95+0.89)/2 = 0.92

Hierarchical Clustering (cont.)

- We differentiate hierarchical clustering algorithms by how they agglomerate distances:

- Single Linkage
- Shortest link between two clusters
- Complete Linkage
- Longest link between two clusters
- Average Linkage
- Average of distances between all pairs of objects
- Average Group Linkage
- Groups once formed are represented by their mean values, and then those are averaged
- Which one did we use in the previous example ?

Patrick Schmid

Support Vector Machines

- Linear regression:
- x = w0 + w1a1 + w2a2 + … + wkak
- x is the class, ai are the attribute values and wj are the weights
- Given a distance vector Y with distances ai in which class x does Y belong?
- What do we mean by a class x?
- Primitive method: Y is in one class if x<0.5, in another class for x≥0.5.

Patrick Schmid

Support Vector Machines (cont.)

- Multi-response linear regression:
- Set output to 1 for training instances that belong to a class
- Set output to 0 for training instances that do not belong to that class
- Result is a linear expression for each class
- Classification of unknown example:
- Compute all linear expressions
- Choose the one that gives the largest output value

Patrick Schmid

Support Vector Machines (cont.)

- This means…
- Two pairs of classes
- Weight vector for class 1:
- w0(1) + w1(1)a1 + w2(1)a2 + … + wk(1)ak
- Weight vector for class 2:
- w0(2) + w1(2)a1 + w2(2)a2 + … + wk(2)ak
- An instance will be assigned to class 1 rather than class 2 if
- w0(1) + w1(1)a1 + w2(1)a2 + … + wk(1)ak> w0(2) + w1(2)a1 + w2(2)a2 + … + wk(2)ak
- We can rewrite this as
- (w0(1) - w0(2)) + (w1(1) -w1(2)) a1 + … + (wk(1) - wk(2)) ak > 0
- Hyperplane

Patrick Schmid

Support Vector Machines (cont.)

- We can only represent linear boundaries between classes so far
- Trick: Transform the input using a nonlinear mapping, then construct a linear model in the new space
- Example: Use all products of n factors (2 attributes, n=3):
- x = w1a13 + w2a12a2 + w3a1a22 + w4a23
- Then use multi-response linear regression
- However, for 10 attributes and including all products with 5 factors, we would need to determine more than 2000 coefficients
- Linear regression is O(n3) in time
- Problem: Training is infeasible
- Another problem: Overfit. The resulting model will be “too nonlinear”, because there are just too many parameters in the model.

Patrick Schmid

Support Vector Machines (cont.)

- Convex hull of points is the tightest enclosing polygon
- Maximum margin hyperplane
- Instances closest to hyperplane are called support vectors
- Support vectors define maximum margin hyperplane uniquely

support vectors

Witten & Frank, 2000

Patrick Schmid

Support Vector Machines (cont.)

- We only need set of support vectors, everything else is irrelevant
- A hyperplane separating two classes can then be written as
- x = w0 + w1a1 + w2a2
- Or
- x = b + ∑ αiγi (a(i) ∙ a)
- i is support vector
- γi is the class value of a(i)
- b and αi are numeric values to be determined
- Vector a represents a test instance
- a(i) are the support vectors
- Determining b and αi is a constrained quadratic optimization problem that can be solved with off-the-shelf software packages
- Support Vector Machines do not overfit, because there are usually only a few support vectors

Patrick Schmid

Support Vector Machines (cont.)

- Did I not introduce Support Vector Machines by talking about non-linear class boundaries?
- x = b + ∑ αiγi (a(i) ∙ a)n
- n is the number of factors
- (x ∙ y)n is called a polynomial kernel
- A good way of choosing n is by starting with n=1 and incrementing it until estimated error ceases to improve
