Statistical Estimation of Genomic Tumoral Alterations

Abstract : Characterization of the tumoral genomic alterations is an important step in the development of personalized medicine in cancerology. Among the methods for treating micro-array data, the GAP (Genome Alteration Print) method of Popova et al. (2009) characterizes the mutations based on the segmentation of copy number and B-allele frequency signals obtained on each SNP. It uses a deterministic criterion that we propose to replace by a parametric probabilistic model. In this way, we define a Gaussian mixture model whose classes characterize the mutation types. This model is estimated by maximum likelihood through the EM algorithm, allowing us to obtain the estimation of the parameters and the characterization of tumoral alterations on each segment. In our approach, the tumoral ploidy is deduced from a penalized model selection criterion. Our model is tested on simulated data and real data.
