What is Machine Learning Definition: The ability of a computer to recognize patterns that have occurred repeatedly and improve its performance based on past experience.

5
Questions for Machine Learning Which genes are co-regulated?Which genes are co-regulated? Which genes have similar functional roles?Which genes have similar functional roles? Do certain gene profiles correlate with diseased patients?Do certain gene profiles correlate with diseased patients? (Which genes are upregulated/downregulated?)(Which genes are upregulated/downregulated?)

6
The Data: How to think about it In Machine Learning, each data point is a vector. Example: Patient_X= (gene_1, gene_2, gene_3, …, gene_N) Expression Ratio for Gene 3

7
Patient_X= (gene_1, gene_2, gene_3, …, gene_N) Each vector ‘lives’ in a high-dimensional space. N is normally larger than 2, so we can’t visualize the data. Expression Ratio for Gene 3

8
Our Goal Tease out the structure of our data from the high-dimensional space in which it lives. Breast cancer patients Healthy patients Patient_X= (gene_1, gene_2, gene_3, …, gene_N)

9
Two ways to think of data for Microarray Experiments 1. All genes for one patient make a vector: Patient_X= (gene_1, gene_2, gene_3, …, gene_N)

16
Outline of Hierarchical Clustering 1. Start by making every data point its own cluster. 2. Repeatedly combine ‘closest’ clusters until only one is left. (example to follow)

17
Initially each datum is its own cluster. Simple Example - Step 1 Legend: Data point (patient) One cluster A G C E B D F High-dimensional point

18
Combine the two closest clusters. Simple Example - Step 2 Legend: Data point (patient) One cluster A G C E B D F E F DENDOGRAM

19
Again: Combine the next two closest clusters. Simple Example - Step 3 Legend: Data point (patient) One cluster A G C E B D F E F B C DENDOGRAM

20
And again... Simple Example - Step 4 Legend: Data point (patient) One cluster A G C E B D F D E F B C DENDOGRAM

21
And again... Simple Example - Step 5 Legend: Data point (patient) One cluster A G C E B D F D E F B C A DENDOGRAM

22
And again... Simple Example - Step 6 Legend: Data point (patient) One cluster A G C E B D F G D E F B C A DENDOGRAM

23

K-Means Clustering Goal: Given a desired number of clusters, find out the cluster centersfind out the cluster centers find out which data point belongs to each clusterfind out which data point belongs to each cluster

40
Legend: Data point (patient) Cluster centre Must specify that we want 3 clusters.

41
Outline of K-Means Clustering Step 1 - Decide how many clusters (let’s say 3). Step 2 - Randomly choose 3 cluster centers.

42
Outline of K-Means Clustering Step 3 - Choose a metric. Step 4 - Assign each point to the cluster that it is ‘closest’ to (according to metric).

43
Outline of K-Means Clustering Step 5 - Recalculate cluster centres using means of points that belong to a cluster. Step 6 - Repeat until convergence (or fixed number of steps, etc.). Newly calculated cluster centres

44
Outline of K-Means Clustering Another step.... assign points to clusters. Reassign Points

45
Outline of K-Means Clustering And the final step.... reposition the means. Newly calculated cluster centres

47
Variations of K-Means: K-Median Clustering (uses median to find new cluster positions instead of mean). Use median/mean/etc/ to reposition cluster.

48
Related to K-Means Clustering: Mixture of Gaussians (now clusters have a width as well) - Gaussian Probability Distribution instead of a metric. Other differences too. Soft Partition (vs. Hard)

75
Self-Organizing Maps (SOMs) Can think of SOMs as a cross between K- Means Clustering and PCA: K-Means: find Cluster centres. PCA: reduce dimensionality of the cluster centres. (i.e. impose a ‘structure’ on the relationship between cluster centres) (At the same time!)

76
Self-Organizing Maps Example: Impose a 1D structure on the cluster centres. 1 Dimension 5000 Dimensions

77
Self-Organizing Maps This imposes an ordering on the cluster centres. 1 Dimension 5000 Dimensions 3241 1 2 4 3

78
Self-Organizing Maps This imposes an ordering on the data points. Data points from Cluster 1 come before points in Cluster 2, etc. Then order based on proximity to neighbouring clusters. 1 Dimension 5000 Dimensions 3241 5 3 2 1 9 87 64 13 12 11 10 17 15 16 14 19 18
