Low-level Model (how gene expression is estimated from signal) Normalisation (to make arrays comparable) Differential Expression Clustering, Partition Model We aim to integrate all the steps in a common statistical framework Microarray analysis is a multi-step process

6
Bayesian Modelling Framework Model different sources of variability simultaneously, within array, between array … Uncertainty propagated from data to parameter estimates (so not over-optimistic in conclusions). Share information in appropriate ways to get robust estimates.

Two extreme cases: (1) Constant variance gsr N(0, 2 ) Too stringent Poor fit (2) Independent variances gsr N(0, g 2 ) ! Variance estimates based on few replications are highly variable Need to share information between genes to better estimate their variance, while allowing some variability Hierarchical model Prior for gene variances

Bayesian Hierarchical Model for Differential Expression Decision Rules Predictive Model Checks Simultaneous estimation of normalization and differential expression Gene Ontology analysis for differentially expressed genes

21
So far, discussed fitting the model. How do we decide which genes are differentially expressed? Parameters of interest: g, δ g, g –What quantity do we consider, δ g, (δ g / g ), … ? –How do we summarize the posterior distribution? Decision Rules for Inference

22
Inference on δ (1)d g = E(δ g | data) posterior mean Like point estimate of log fold change. Decision Rule: gene g is DE if |d g | > δ cut (2)p g = P( |δ g | > δ cut | data) posterior probability (incorporates uncertainty) Decision Rule: gene g is DE if p g > p cut This allows biologist to specify what size of effect is interesting (not just statistical significance) Fixed Effects Model biological interest biological interest statistical confidence

23
Inference on δ, (1)t g = E(δ g | data) / E( g | data) Like t-statistic. Decision Rule: gene g is DE if |t g | > t cut (2)p g = P( |δ g / g | > t cut | data) Decision Rule: gene g is DE if p g > p cut Bochkina and Richardson (in preparation) Fixed Effects Model statistical confidence statistical confidence

24
δ g ~ 0 δ 0 + 1 G_ (1.5, 1 ) + 2 G + (1.5, 2 ) Mixture Model (1)d g = E(δ g | data) posterior mean Shrunk estimate of log fold change. Decision Rule: gene g is DE if |d g | > δ cut (2)Classify genes into the mixture components. p g = P(gene g not in H 0 | data) Decision Rule: gene g is DE if p g > p cut H0H0 Explicit modelling of the alternative

27
Bayesian P-values Compare observed data to a null distribution P-value: probability of an observation from the null distribution being more extreme than the actual observation If all observations come from the null distribution, the distribution of p-values is Uniform

28
Cross-validation p-values Distribution of p-values {p i, i=1,…,n} is approximately Uniform if model adequately describes the data. Idea of cross validation is to split the data: one part for fitting the model, the rest for validation n units of observation For each observation y i, run model on rest of data y -i, predict new data y i new from posterior distribution. Bayesian p-value p i = Prob(y i new > y i | data y -i )

29
Posterior Predictive p-values all data includes y i p-values are less extreme than they should be p-values are conservative (not quite Uniform). Bayesian p-value p i = Prob(y i new > y i | all data) For large n, not possible to run model n times. Run model on all data. For each observation y i, predict new data y i new from posterior distribution.

30
Bayesian p-value Prob( S g 2 new > S g 2 obs | data) Example: Check priors on gene variances 1)Compare equal and exchangeable variance models 2)Compare different exchangeable priors Want to compare data for each gene, not gene and replicate, so use sample variance S g 2 (suppress index s here)

31
WinBUGS code for posterior predictive checks for( i in 1 : ngenes ) { for( j in 1 : nreps) { y1[i, j] ~ dnorm(x1[i, j], tau1[i]) ynew1[i, j] ~ dnorm(x1[i, j], tau1[i]) x1[i, j] <- alpha[i] - 0.5*delta[i] + beta1[i, j] } s21[i] <- pow(sd(y1[i, ]), 2) s2new1[i] <- pow(sd(ynew1[i, ]), 2) pval1[i] <- step(s2new1[i] - s21[i]) } replicate relevant sampling distribution calculate sample variances count no. times predicted sample variance is bigger than observed sample variance

32
Posterior predictive Prior parameters y gr Mean parameters r = 1:R g = 1:G g 2 Sg2Sg2 new Sg2Sg2 y gr new Graph shows structure of model

33
Mixed predictive Prior parameters y gr Mean parameters r = 1:R g = 1:G g 2 Sg2Sg2 new Sg2Sg2 y gr new g 2 new Less conservative than posterior predictive (Marshall and Spiegelhalter, 2003)

34
Equal variance model: Model 1: 2 log Normal (0, 10000) Exchangeable variance models: Model 2: g -2 Gamma (2, β) Model 3: g -2 Gamma (α, β) Model 4: g 2 log Normal (μ, τ) (α, β, μ, τ all parameters) Four models for gene variances

Bayesian Hierarchical Model for Differential Expression Decision Rules Predictive Model Checks Simultaneous estimation of normalization and differential expression Gene Ontology analysis for differentially expressed genes

37
Expression level dependent normalization Many gene expression data sets need normalization which depends on expression level. Usually normalization is performed in a pre-processing step before the model for differential expression is used. These analyses ignore the fact that the expression level is measured with variability. Ignoring this variability leads to bias in the function used for normalization.

38
Simulated Data Gene variances similar range and distribution to mouse data Array effects cubic functions of expression level Differential effects 900 genes: δ g = 0 50 genes: δ g N( log(3), 0.1 2 ) 50 genes: δ g N( -log(3), 0.1 2 )

39
Array Effects and Variability for Simulated Data Data points:y gsr – y g (r = 1…3) Curves: r(g)s (r = 1…3) _

40
Two-step method (using loess) 1)Use loess smoothing to obtain array effects loess r(g)s 2)Subtract loess array effects from data: y loess gsr = y gsr - loess r(g)s 3)Run our model on y loess gsr with no array effects

41
Decision rules for selecting differentially expressed genes If P( |δ g | > δ cut | data) > p cut then gene g is called differentially expressed. δ cut chosen according to biological hypothesis of interest (here we use log(3) ). p cut corresponds to the error rate (e.g. False Discovery Rate or Mis-classification Penalty) considered acceptable.

42
Full model v. two-step method Plot observed False Discovery Rate against p cut (averaged over 5 simulations) Solid line for full model Dashed line for pre- normalized method

43
1)y loess gsr = y gsr - loess r(g)s 2)y model gsr = y gsr - E( r(g)s | data) Results from 2 different two-step methods are much closer to each other than to full model results. Different two-step methods

44
Bayesian Hierarchical Model for Differential Expression Decision Rules Predictive Model Checks Simultaneous estimation of normalization and differential expression Gene Ontology analysis for differentially expressed genes

53
Summary Bayesian hierarchical model flexible, estimates variances robustly Predictive model checks show exchangeable prior good for gene variances Useful to find GO terms over-represented in the most differentially-expressed genes Paper available (Lewin et al. 2005, Biometrics, in press) http ://www.bgx.org.uk/

55
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|
