A Double-Layered Mixture Model For The Joint Analysis Of Dna Copy Number And Gene Expression Data, Debashis Ghosh Jan 2009

A Double-Layered Mixture Model For The Joint Analysis Of Dna Copy Number And Gene Expression Data, Debashis Ghosh

Debashis Ghosh

Copy number aberration is a common form of genomic instability in cancer. Gene expression is closely tied to cytogenetic events by the central dogma of molecular biology, and serves as a mediator of copy number changes in disease phenotypes. Accordingly, it is of interest to develop proper statistical methods for jointly analyzing copy number and gene expression data. This work describes a novel Bayesian inferential approach for a double-layered mixture model (DLMM) which directly models the stochastic nature of copy number data and identifies abnormally expressed genes due to aberrant copy number. Simulation studies were conducted to illustrate the robustness ...
