BayCis: A Bayesian Hierarchical HMM for Cis-Regulatory Module Decoding in Metazoan Genomes
The transcriptional regulatory sequences in metazoan genomes often consist of multiple cis-regulatory modules (CRMs). Each CRM contains locally enriched occurrences of binding sites (motifs) for a certain array of regulatory proteins, capable of integrating, amplifying or attenuating multiple regulatory signals via combinatorial interaction with these proteins. The architecture of CRM organizations is reminiscent of the grammatical rules underlying a natural language, and presents a particular challenge to computational motif and CRM identification in metazoan genomes. In this paper, we present BayCis, a Bayesian hierarchical HMM that attempts to capture the stochastic syntactic rules of CRM organization. Under the BayCis model, all candidate sites are evaluated based on a posterior probability measure that takes into consideration their similarity to known BSs, their contrasts against local genomic context, their first-order dependencies on upstream sequence elements, as well as prior...
