Joint estimation of DNA copy number from multiple platforms
DNA copy number variants (CNV) are gains and losses of segments of chromosomes, and comprise an important class of genetic variation. Recently, various microarray hybridization based techniques have been developed for high throughput measurement of DNA copy number. In many studies, multiple technical platforms or different versions of the same platform were used to interrogate the same samples; and it became necessary to pool information across these multiple sources to derive a consensus molecular profile for each sample. An integrated analysis is expected to maximize resolution and accuracy, yet currently there is no well formulated statistical method to address the between-platform differences in probe design, assay methods, sensitivity, and analytical complexity. The conventional approach is to apply one of the CNV detection (a.k.a. "segmentation") algorithms to search for DNA segments of altered signal intensity. The results from three platforms are combined after segme...
