11 Motif Representation

12 Search for motifs that are present more frequently in a set of sequences than in a set of unrelated sequences Methods based on word counting (regular expression) NP problems, heuristic methods clever algorithms –motif w=8; combinations=8! –Jensen & Knudsen, 2000; van Helden, 2000; Vanet, 2000 Probabilistic methods (weight matrix) Multiple alignment by locally aligning small conserved regions in a set of unaligned sequences. Motif model represented by a probability matrix EM, Gibbs sampler (optimization algorithms) –AlignACE –BioProspector: –Motif Sampler Overview Algorithms

13 Search space When are motifs overrepresented statistically? Set of coexpressed (coregulated sequences) –Literature searches –Microarrays, expression profiling Set of orthologous sequences (phylogenetic footprinting) –Comparative genomics –Orthologous sequences similar ancestral origin => similar mechanism of transcriptional regulation

14 coexpression cDNA arrays Motif finding Clustering Preprocessing of the data EMBL BLAST Upstream regions Gibbs sampling Search space

18 Monad frequencies: single word counts: (RSA tools) (J. Vanhelden et al., 1998 J. Mol. Biol.) –Enumerate all oligonucleotides –count the number of occurrences of all oligonucleotides of selected size in a set of coregulated genes –compare the number of occurrences with its expected value in the background Word Counting

19 Relevance of the motifs detected p-Value and Sig score (string based methods) Expected number of occurrences in background Statistical significance Word Counting

21 Find common motifs, that represent regulatory elements, in the region upstream of translation start in a set of co-expressed DNA sequences  Motifs are hidden in background sequence Probabilistic Algorithms

22 Motif Representation: Probability matrix (PSSM) Background model Single nucleotide frequencies Described by an m th order Markov process, that can be represented by a transition matrix Probabilistic Algorithms

23 Step 1: Initialization of alignment vector A (predictive update) i j 1 n G A A T T C A T G T C A C T T C A T T G Step 2: Calculate motif model for all sequences except one Probabilistic Algorithms

24 GAATTATCGTGAATGCGTGGT P(S|M) = x x x x P(S|B) = Step 3 (expectation): Select remaining sequence For each window (site) calculate the probability that the sequence in the window is generated by the motif model versus the probability that it is generated by the background model i 1 n Assign weight based on this score to this site Probabilistic Algorithms

25 Step 4 (Maximization): –Re-estimate new positions based on the weights calculated in step 3 Go to step 1 i j 1 nn Re-iterate until stable motifs are found i j 1

26 local optima –EM update alignment vector: Select positions with highest score Deterministic output but local minimum global optimum –Gibbs sampling Select positions according to probability distribution Stochastic output: –i.e. result differs each time the algorithm runs –allows to detect stable motifs –statistical analysis describes quality of the motif detected Probabilistic Algorithms

27 Influence of the background model: e.g. p(ATCGT|Bm)=p(AT)p(C|AT)p(G|TC)p(T|CG) Compensates for motifs that occur frequently because of the general background composition Makes the outcome of the algorithm more robust Probabilistic Algorithms

28 Two organisms with similar background model Two organisms with different background model Probabilistic Algorithms

29 Information content (Consensus score) Log likelihood Relative entropy (Information content) Entropy Probabilistic Algorithms Motif scores for probabilistic motif finding algorithms

30 Result: bacterial O 2 responsive element FNR Probabilistic Algorithms Takes into account the background model Does only take into account the degree of conservation Tradeoff between the degree of conservation and the number of occurrences
