2 Modelling differential expression Many different methods/models for differential expression –t-test –t-test with stabilised variances (EB) –Bayesian hierarchical models –mixture models Choice whether to model alternative hypothesis or not Our model: –Model the alternative hypothesis –Fully Bayesian

3
3 Gene means and fold differences: linear model on the log scale Gene variances: borrow information across genes by assuming exchangeable variances Mixture prior on fold difference parameters Point mass prior for null hypothesis Mixture model features

5 In full Bayesian framework, introduce latent allocation variable z g = 0,1 for gene g in null, alternative For each gene, calculate posterior probability of belonging to unmodified component: p g = Pr( z g = 0 | data ) Classify using cut-off on p g (Bayes rule corresponds to 0.5) For any given p g, can estimate FDR, FNR. Decision Rules For gene-list S, est. (FDR | data) = Σ g S p g / |S|

6 Simulation Study Explore Explore performance of fully Bayesian mixture in different situations: Non-standard distribution of DE genes Small number of DE genes Small number of replicate arrays Asymmetric distributions of over- and under- expressed genes Simulated data, 50 simulated data sets for each of several different set-ups.

12 Comparison with conjugate mixture prior Replace d g ~ 0 δ G_ (1.5, 1 ) + 2 G + (1.5, 2 ) with d g ~ 0 δ N(0, c g 2 ) NB: We estimate both c and 0 in fully Bayesian way. True 0 Est. 0 with Gamma prior Est. 0 with conjugate prior ± ± ± ± ± ± ± 0.001

13
13 Application to Mouse data Mouse wildtype (WT) and knock-out (KO) data (Affymetrix) ~ genes, 8 replicates in each WT and KO Gamma prior Est. π 0 = ± Declares 59 genes DE

14 Summary Good performance of fully Bayesian mixture model –can estimate proportion of DE genes in variety of situations –accurate estimation of FDR / FNR Different mixture priors give similar classification results Gives reasonable results for real data
