10 RNA replication transcription translation DNA RNA Protein

11 RNA Types messenger RNA ribosomal RNA (rRNA) transfer RNA (tRNA)
Gene is expressed by transcribing DNA into single-stranded mRNA

12 RNA (Detailed) (

13 Reverse Transcription
replication transcription translation DNA RNA Protein Reverse Transcription By reverse transcriptase, we can convert RNA into cDNA.

14 The Southern Blot Basic DNA detection technique that has been used for over 30 years, known as Southern blots: A “known” strand of DNA is deposited on a solid support (i.e. nitocellulose paper) An “unknown” mixed bag of DNA is labelled (radioactive or flourescent) “Unknown” DNA solution allowed to mix with known DNA (attached to nitro paper), then excess solution washed off If a copy of “known” DNA occurs in “unknown” sample, it will stick (hybridize), and labeled DNA will be detected on photographic film

15 mRNA Represent Gene Function
When measure the level of a mRNA, we are monitoring the activity of a gene. Thus, if we can understand all the level of mRNAs, we can study the expression of whole genome. Microarray takes the advantage of getting over of blotting data in a single experiment, which makes monitoring the genome activity possible.

17 Design of Microarray Microarray in different context
The idea of microarray Main type of array chips

18 mRNA Levels Compared in Many Different Contexts
Different tissues, same organism (brain v. liver) Same tissue, same organism (tumor v. non-tumor) Same tissue, different organisms (wt v. mutant) Time course experiments (development) Other special designs (e.g. to detect spatial patterns).

19 Idea of Microarray Cell A Cell B Labeled cDNA from geneX
Hybridizaton to chip Spot of geneX with complementary sequence of colored cDNA This spot shows red color after scanning.

20 Over 10,000 Hybridization Could Be Down at One Time

21 Several Types of Arrays
Spotted DNA arrays Developed by Pat Brown’s lab at Stanford PCR products of full-length genes (>100nt) Affymetrix gene chips Photolithography technology from computer industry allows building many 25-mers Ink-jet microarrays from Agilent 25-60-mers “printed directly on glass slides Flexible, rapid, but expensive

22 Array Fabrication Spotting
Use PCR to amplify DNA Robotic "pen" deposits DNA at defined coordinates approximately 1-10 ng per spot Experimentation with oligos (40, 70 bp)

23 This machine can make 48 microarrays simultaneously.

24 Array Fabrication Photolithography
Light activated synthesis synthesize oligonucleotides on glass slides 107copies per oligo in 24 x 24 um square Use 20 pairs of different 25-mers per gene Perfect match and mismatch

25 Array Fabrication Photolithography

26 Affymetrix Microarrays
Raw image 1.28cm 50um ~107 oligonucleotides, half perfectly match mRNA (PM), half have one mismatch (MM) Raw gene expression is intensity difference: PM - MM

27 Agilent cDNA microarray and oligonucelotides microarray
Agilent delivering printed 60-mer microarrays in addition to 25-mer formats. The inkjet process uses standard phosphoramidite chemistry to deliver extremely small volumes (picoliters) of the chemicals to be spotted.

29 The Workflow of Microarray

30 cDNA Synthesis And Directly Labeling

31 Cy3 and Cy5 cDNA Hybridization On To The Chip
e.g. treatment / control normal / tumor tissue Sample loading 1.Loading from the corner of the cover slip It is time consuming and easily producing bubbles. 1 2. Loading sample at the center of array then put the slip smoothly Faster, and have lower chance of bubble producing then the last one. 2 Sample loading 3. Loading sample at the side of the array then put the slip on. Solution would attach to the slip right after the slip contact with it, and would diffuse with the movement of slip when we slowly move down. 3 Sample loading

32 Scan Green: down regulate Red: up regulate Yellow: equal level

33 Content Biology background of microarray Design of microarray
The workflow of microarray Image analysis of microarray Data analysis of microarray Discussion

34 Image analysis To find a spot Convert feature into numeric data
Image normalization

35 The Algorithms 1. Find spots: Finds the location of each spot on the microarray. 2. Cookie cutter algorithm: (1).Suppose the distribution of pixels vs intensity is Gaussian curve (2).Using SD or IQR to identify the feature and background of each spot (3).Calculates statistics for the pixel population

36 Interquartile Range(IQR)
D K=IQR/2 1.42 IQR Boundary for rejection 25% 50% 75% Boundary for rejection IQR

37 Feature or cookie D Local background Exclusion zone

38 Data Quality Irregular size or shape Irregular placement Low intensity
Saturation Spot variance Background variance miss alignment artifact indistinguishable saturated bad print

39 Convert Feature Into Numeric Value
Green background Green b.g.-corrected Red b.g.-corrected (R. b.g.-c)/(G. b.g.-c) Red intensity Green intensity Systematic name Red b.g. Gene function

40 Data Normalization Normalize data to correct for variances
Dye bias Location bias Intensity bias Pin bias Slide bias Control vs. non-control spots

41 Data Normalization Uncalibrated, red light under detected
Calibrated, red and green equally detected

42 Data Normalization Assumptions Overall mean average ratio should be 1
Most genes are not differentially expressed Total intensity of dyes are equivalent

43 Intensity Dependent Normalization

44 After Normalization

45 Additional Normalization
Pin dependent Similar to intensity dependent fit. Compute individual lowess fits for each pin group Within slide normalization After pin dependent normalization, log ratios for each pin are centered around 0 Scale variance for each pin Uses MAD (median absolute deviation)

46 Additional Normalization
Dye swap Combine relative expression levels without explicit normalization Compute lowess fit for log2(RR’/GG’)/2 vs. log2(A + A’)/2 Normalized ratio is log2(R/G) - c(A) where c(A) is the lowess prediction

48 Data analysis Data filtering Fold change analysis Classification
Clustering Future direction

49 Microarray Data Classification
Microarray chips Images scanned by laser Gene Value D26528_at D26561_cds1_at D26561_cds2_at D26561_cds3_at D26579_at D26598_at D26599_at D26600_at D28114_at Datasets New sample Data Mining and analysis Prediction:

50 The Threshold of Spots Filtering - remove genes with insufficient variation Remove insufficient spot: saturated, None uniform, too high background… Remove extreme signal: e.g. MaxVal - MinVal < 500 and MaxVal/MinVal < 5 Statistical filtering (e.g. p-value<0.01) biological reasons feature reduction for algorithmic

51 Microarray Data Analysis Types
Different gene expression Fold change analysis Classification (Supervised) identify disease predict outcome / select best treatment Clustering (Unsupervised) find new biological classes / refine existing ones exploration

52 Differential Gene Expression
n-fold change n typically >= 2 May hold no biological relevance Often too restrictive 2 expression Calculate standard deviation  Genes with expression more than 2 away are differentially expressed

53 Fold Changes-Scatter Plot

54 Fold Changes Table 23

55 Classification: Multi-Class
Similar Approach: select top genes most correlated to each class select best subset using cross-validation build a single model separating all classes Advanced: build separate model for each class vs. rest choose model making the strongest prediction

56 Popular Classification Methods
Decision Trees/Rules find smallest gene sets, but also false positives Neural Nets - work well if number of genes is reduced SVM good accuracy, does its own gene selection, hard to understand K-nearest neighbor - robust for small number genes Bayesian nets - simple, robust

57 Multi-class Data Example
Brain data, Pomeroy et al 2002, Nature (415), Jan 2002 42 examples, about 7,000 genes, 5 classes Selected top 100 genes most correlated to each class Selected best subset by testing 1,2, …, 20 genes subsets, leave-one-out x-validation for each

58 Classification – Other Applications
Combining clinical and genetic data Outcome / Treatment prediction Age, Sex, stage of disease, are useful e.g. if Data from Male, not Ovarian cancer

59 Clustering Goals Find natural classes in the data
Identify new classes / gene correlations Refine existing taxonomies Support biological analysis / discovery Different Methods Hierarchical clustering, SOM's, etc

60 SOM clustering SOM - self organizing maps Preprocessing
filter away genes with insufficient biological variation normalize gene expression (across samples) to mean 0, st. dev 1, for each gene separately. Run SOM for many iterations Plot the results

61 SOM & K Mean By GeneSpring

62 Hierarchical Clustering
The most popular hierarchical clustering method used in microarray data analysis is the so called agglomerative method works with the data in a bottom-up manner. Initially, each data point forms a cluster and the algorithm works through the cluster sets by repeatedly merging the two which are the most similar or have the shortest distance. algorithm involves the computation of the distance or similarity matrix O(N^2) complexity and thus is not very efficient.

63 Hierarchical clustering

64 Future directions Algorithms optimized for small samples (the no. of samples will remain small for many tasks) Integration with other data biological networks medical text protein data cost-sensitive classification algorithms error cost depends on outcome (don’t want to miss treatable cancer), treatment side effects, etc.

67 Microarray Potential Applications
Biological discovery new and better molecular diagnostics new molecular targets for therapy finding and refining biological pathways Mutation and polymorphism detection Recent examples molecular diagnosis of leukemia, breast cancer, ... appropriate treatment for genetic signature potential new drug targets

68 Microarray Limitations
Cross-hybridization of sequences with high identity Chip to chip variation True measure of abundance? Does mRNA levels reflect protein levels? Generally, do not “prove” new biology - simply suggest genes involved in a process, a hypothesis that will require traditional experimental verification. What fold change has biological relevance? Need cloned EST or some sequence knowledge -- rare messages may be undetected Expensive!! Not every lab can afford experiment repeat. The real limitation is Bioinformatics
