SUMMARY CGH-Explorer is a program for visualization and statistical analysis of microarray-based comparative genomic hybridization (array-CGH) data. The program has preprocessing facilities, tools for graphical exploration of individual arrays or groups of arrays, and tools for statistical identification of regions of amplification and deletion.
The immense increase in the generation of genomic scale data poses an unmet analytical challenge, due to a lack of established methodology with the required flexibility and power. We propose a first principled approach to statistical analysis of sequence-level genomic information. We provide a growing collection of generic biological investigations that(More)
MOTIVATION Missing values are problematic for the analysis of microarray data. Imputation methods have been compared in terms of the similarity between imputed and true values in simulation experiments and not of their influence on the final analysis. The focus has been on missing at random, while entries are missing also not at random. RESULTS We(More)
Integrative analysis of gene dosage, expression, and ontology (GO) data was performed to discover driver genes in the carcinogenesis and chemoradioresistance of cervical cancers. Gene dosage and expression profiles of 102 locally advanced cervical cancers were generated by microarray techniques. Fifty-two of these patients were also analyzed with the(More)
The study of chromatin 3D structure has recently gained much focus owing to novel techniques for detecting genome-wide chromatin contacts using next-generation sequencing. A deeper understanding of the architecture of the DNA inside the nucleus is crucial for gaining insight into fundamental processes such as transcriptional regulation, genome dynamics and(More)
Integration of retroviral vectors in the human genome follows non random patterns that favor insertional deregulation of gene expression and may cause risks of insertional mutagenesis when used in clinical gene therapy. Understanding how viral vectors integrate into the human genome is a key issue in predicting these risks. We provide a new statistical(More)
Intratumoral levels of E1 (oestrone), E1S (oestrone sulphate) and E2 (oestradiol) are significantly reduced by treatment with the aromatase inhibitor anastrozole regardless of treatment response. The purpose of the present pilot study was to look for additional markers of biochemical response to aromatase inhibitors on mRNA expression level. Whole genome(More)
The immense increase in availability of genomic scale datasets, such as those provided by the ENCODE and Roadmap Epigenomics projects, presents unprecedented opportunities for individual researchers to pose novel falsifiable biological questions. With this opportunity, however, researchers are faced with the challenge of how to best analyze and interpret(More)
The lasso is one of the most commonly used methods for high-dimensional regression, but can be unstable and lacks satisfactory asymptotic properties for variable selection. We propose to use weighted lasso with integrated relevant external information on the covariates to guide the selection towards more stable results. Weighting the penalties with external(More)
A method providing absolute transcript concentrations from spotted microarray intensity data is presented. Number of transcripts per microg total RNA, mRNA or per cell, are obtained for each gene, enabling comparisons of transcript levels within and between tissues. The method is based on Bayesian statistical modelling incorporating available information(More)
