Bayesian modeling of ChIP chip data using latent variables

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2779819
PMID: 19857265
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-352

[…] sing essentially a mixture of normal distributions, and models the spatial structure of the probes using a Gaussian intrinsic auto-regression model []. Gottardo [] developed a software for the model, Bayesian analysis of ChIP-chip (or BAC for short). Using BAC [] does not need extra experimental information, but it is extremely slow, roughly 10 hours for a dataset with 300,000 probes on a personal […]


Improved ChIP chip analysis by a mixture model approach

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2700807
PMID: 19500407
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-173

[…] iers [], and it assumes at most one peak per genomic region, so that the genome has to be partitioned (often arbitrarily) into smaller regions before applying HGMM. Gottardo et. al.'s method [], BAC (Bayesian Analysis of ChIP-chip), is based on approaches used for gene expression studies [] with some additional modifications to exploit the spatial dependence between neighboring probes and to impro […]
