1 1 Modelling of CGH arrays experiments Philippe Broët Faculté de Médecine, Université de Paris-XI Sylvia Richardson Imperial College London CGH = Competitive Genomic Hybridization

2 2 Outline Background Mixture model with spatial allocations Performance, comparison with CGH- Miner Analyses of CGH-array cancer data sets Extensions

3 3 The development of solid tumors is associated with the acquisition of complex genetic alterations that modify normal cell growth and survival. Many of these changes involve gains and/or losses of parts of the genome: Amplification of an oncogene or deletion of a tumor suppressor gene are considered as important mechanisms for tumorigenesis. LossGain Tumor supressor geneOncogene Aim: study genomic alterations in oncology

4 4 1. Extraction - DNA 2. Labelling (fluo) 3. Co-hybridization 4. Scanning Case Control CGH = Competitive Genomic hybridization Array containing short sequences of DNA bound to glass slide Fluorescein-labeled normal and pathologic samples co-hybridised to the array

5 5 Once hybridization has been performed, the signal intensities of the fluorophores is quantified Provides a means to quantitatively measure DNA copy-number alterations and to map them directly onto genomic sequence

6 6 MCF7 cell line investigated in Pollack et al (2002) 23 chromosomes and 6691 cDNA sequences Data log transformed: Difference bet. MCF7 and reference

7 7 Types of alterations observed (Single) Gain or Deletion of sequences, occurring for contiguous regions Low level changes in the ratio ± log2 but attenuation (dye bias) ratio ± 0.4 Multiple gains (small regions) High level change, easy to pick up Focus the modelling on the first common type of alterations

8 8 Deletion? Multiple gains ? Normal? Chromosome 1

9 Mixture model

10 10 Specificity of CGH array experiment A priori biological knowledge from conventional CGH : Limited number of states for a genomic sequence : - presence (modal), - deletion, - gain(s) corresponding to different intensity ratios on the array Mixture model to capture the underlying discrete states GS located contiguously on chromosomes are likely to carry alterations of the same type Use clone spatial location in the allocation model 3 component mixture model with spatial allocation

11 11 Mixture model For chromosome k: Z gk : log ratio of measurement of normal versus tumoral change, genomic sequence (GS) g, chromosome k Dye bias is estimated by using a reference array (normal/normal) and then subtracting the bias from Z gk Z gk w 1 gk N( μ 1, 1 2 ) + w 2 gk N( μ 2, 2 2 ) + w 3 gk N( μ 3, 3 2 ) For unique labelling: μ 1 0 μ 2 = 0 (dye bias has been adjusted) 2=presence 1=deletion 3=gain

12 12 Define mixture proportions to depend on the chromosomic location via a logistic model: w c gk = exp( u c gk ) / Σ m exp( u m gk ) favours allocation of nearby GS to same component Mixture model with spatial allocation Z gk w 1 gk N( μ 1, 1 2 ) + w 2 gk N( μ 2, 2 2 ) + w 3 gk N( μ 3, 3 2 ) Spatial structure on the weights (c.f. Fernandez and Green, 2002): Introduce 3 centred Markov random fields {u m gk }, m = 1, 2, 3 with nearest neighbours along the chromosomes x x x g -1 gg+1 Spatial neighbours of GS g

13 13 Prior structure w c gk = exp( u c gk ) / Σ m exp( u m gk ) with Gaussian Conditional AutoRegressive model : u c gk | u c - gk ~ N ( h u c hk /n g, ck 2 /n g ) for h = neighbour of g (n g = #h, one or two in this simple case), with constraint g u c gk = 0 Variance parameters ck 2 of the CAR acts as a smoothing prior: indexed by the chromosome : switching structure between the states can be different between chromosomes Mean and variances (μ c, c 2 ) of the mixture components are common to all chromosomes borrowing information Inverse gamma priors for the variances, uniform priors for the means

14 14 Posterior quantities of interest Bayesian inference via MCMC, implemented using Winbugs In particular, latent allocations, L gk, of GS g on chromosome k to state c, are sampled during the MCMC run Compute posterior allocation probabilities : p c gk = P(L gk = c | data), c =1,2,3 Probabilistic classification of each GS using threshold on p c gk : -- Assign g to modified state: deletion (c=1) or gain (c=3) if corresponding p c gk > 0.8, -- Otherwise allocate to modal state. Subset S of genomic sequences classified as modified (this subset depends on the chosen threshold)

15 15 False Discovery Rate Using the posterior allocation probabilities, can compute an estimate of FDR for the list S : Bayes FDR (S) | data = 1/card(S) Σ g S p 2 gk where p 2 gk is posterior probability of allocation to the modal (c=2) state Note: Can adjust the threshold to get a desired FDR and vice versa

18 18 CGH-Miner Data mining approach to select gain and losses (Wang et al 2005): –Hierarchical clustering with a spatial constraint (ie only spatially adjacent clusters are joined) –Subtree selection according to predefined rules focus on selecting large consistent gain/loss regions and small (big spike) regions –Implemented in CGH-Miner Excel plug in Estimation of FDR using a reference (normal/normal) array and the same set of rules to prune the tree. Declared target 1% Simulation set-up is similar to Wang et al.
