Joint Analysis of DNA Copy Numbers and Gene Expression Levels
Abstract. Genomic instabilities, amplifications, deletions and translocations are often observed in tumor cells. In the process of cancer pathogenesis cells acquire multiple genomic alterations, some of which drive the process by triggering overexpression of oncogenes and by silencing tumor suppressors and DNA repair genes. We present data analysis methods designed to study the overall transcriptional effects of DNA copy number alterations. Alterations can be measured using several techniques including microarray based hybridization assays. The data have unique properties due to the strong dependence between measurement values in close genomic loci. To account for this dependence in studying the correlation of DNA copy number to expression levels we develop versions of standard correlation methods that apply to genomic regions and methods for assessing the statistical significance of the observed results. In joint DNA copy number and expression data we define significantly altered...
