[…] with affymetrix genechip human mapping 250k nspi array, and then preprocessed with cnat 4.01 . after that, the cn profiles have been estimated with the modified bayesian piecewise regression (mbpcr) method . finally, the cn aberrations were divided into two major categories corresponding to a decrease or increase of number of copies, that is, cn and cn . as a consequence, for each probe, […]

[…] analyzed by a thresholding procedure, such as huang et al. []. gada can be applied to both cgh and snp based data. rancoita et al. [] also make use of piecewise constant modeling in their algorithm, mbpcr, which is a modification of the original bayesian piecewise constant regression (bpcr) method developed by hutter []. this method is general for data that take the form of a piecewise constant […]

[…] as a piecewise constant function (i.e. the genome is divided in regions of constant copy number), where the levels assume real values. for the purpose of our model, we estimate this profile by mbpcr, which is a bayesian piecewise constant regression procedure []. it has been shown in [] that this method outperformed well-known other methods on several datasets., commonly, […]

[…] take into account the dependency among the boundaries and succeeded in estimating more than one breakpoint at the same position, losing segments., we derived an improved version of the bpcr (called mbpcr) and brc, changing the segment number estimator and the boundary estimator to enhance the fitting procedure. we also proposed an alternative estimator of the variance of the segment levels, […]
