View source: R/DIME.R

Description

A robust differential identification method that considers ensemble of finite mixture models combined with a local false discovery rate (fdr) for analyzing ChIP-seq data comparing two samples.
This package can also be used to identify differential in other high throughput data such as microarray, methylation etc.

Details

After normalization, a Gamma-Normal(k)-Gamma (GNG), a Uniform-Normal(k) (iNUDGE) and a Uniform-Normal (NUDGE) mixture are fitted to the data. Two-phase selection method is used to choose the best model. The (k)-normal component can represent either differential regions or non-differential regions depending on their location and shape, making the model more robust to different underlying distributions. The exponential or uniform represents differential sites. Local (fdr) is computed from the best fitted model. Parameters estimation is performed using EM algorithm.

Value

A list with 4 components (i.e. best, gng, inudge and nudge) which in itself is another list containing the estimated parameters of each model fitted correspondingly. "best" lists the model chosen as the best overall model, i.e. if the best model is inudge then best$name = "iNUDGE" and its content is the same as inudge. Thus, depending on the model, the components are:

name

the name of the model "GNG", "iNUDGE","NUDGE" where GNG: normal(k)-exponential (a special case of gamma), iNUDGE: normal(k)-uniform, or NUDGE: normal-uniform models

pi

a vector of estimated proportion of each components in the model

mu

a vector of estimated Gaussian means for k-normal components.

sigma

a vector of estimated Gaussian standard deviation for k-normal components.

beta

a vector of estimated exponential shape values. Only available in gng.

th1

negative location parameter used to fit the negative exponential model. Only available in gng.

th2

positive location parameter used to fit the positive exponential model. Only available in gng.

a

the minimum value of the normalized data. Only available in (i)nudge.

b

the maximum value of the normalized data. Only available in (i)nudge.

K

the number of normal components in the corresponding mixture model. For inudge, K=1.

loglike

the log likelihood for the fitted mixture model.

iter

the number of iterations run by the EM algorithm until either convergence or iteration limit was reached.

fdr

the local false discover rate estimated based on the corresponding model.

class

a vector of classifications for the observations in data. A classification of 0 denotes that the regions could not be classified as differential with fdr < <model>.fdr.cutoff, 1 denotes differential.

diffPiIdx

a vector of index of the normal components that are defined as capturing differential regions based on their shape and locations.

phi

a vector of estimated mixture function

mu.diff.cutoff

normal component with mean > mu.diff.cutoff will be used to represent differential component.

sigma.diff.cutoff

normal component with standard deviation > sigma.diff.cutoff will be used to represent differential component.
