Publication for Multi-Mapping Bayesian Gene eXpression

MMBGX citations


Comparative evaluation of isoform level gene expression estimation algorithms for RNA seq and exon array platforms

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 5444266
PMID: 26944083
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbw016

[…] Because MMBGX and eXpress shared the most commonly resolved transcripts and the strongest overall expression and fold change correlations, their data were used in comparing RNA-seq and exon-array platforms in […]


Evaluation of data discretization methods to derive platform independent isoform expression signatures for multi class tumor subtyping

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 4652565
PMID: 26576613
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-16-S11-S3

[…] samples and 10 normal brain samples from TCGA data portal (; obtained the isoform expression of 114,930 transcript variants (equivalent to 35,612 genes) using the Multi-Mapping Bayesian Gene eXpression program []. The estimated expression values were then normalized across the samples, using the locally weighted scatterplot smoothing algorithm [], a non-paramet […]


Isoform level gene signature improves prognostic stratification and accurately classifies glioblastoma subtypes

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4005667
PMID: 24503249
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gku121

[…] s and 10 normal brain samples (control samples) from the TCGA data portal ( The transcript (isoform)-level and gene-level expression estimates were obtained by the Multi-Mapping Bayesian Gene eXpression algorithm () for Affymetrix whole-transcript arrays, based on Ensemble database (version 56). The estimated expression values were then normalized across the sam […]


Isoform level expression profiles provide better cancer signatures than gene level expression profiles

Genome Med
PMCID: 3706752
PMID: 23594586
DOI: 10.1186/gm437

[…] The isoform level (transcript-level) and gene level expression estimates were obtained by the Multi-Mapping Bayesian Gene eXpression (MMBGX) algorithm for Affymetrix whole-transcript arrays [], based on the Ensembl database (version 56) [], which contains a total of 114,930 different transcrip […]


Induction of p16INK4a Is the Major Barrier to Proliferation when Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) Transforms Primary B Cells into Lymphoblastoid Cell Lines

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 3578823
PMID: 23436997
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1003187
call_split See protocol

[…] everse transcribed and amplified (using the Applause WT-Amp Plus ST kit – NuGen) and hybridized to Affymetrix Human Exon 1.0ST microarrays by UCL Genomics. Gene level analysis was performed using the MMBGX algorithm to generate gene-level data according ENSEMBL genome annotation version 64, as mapped to the Exon microarray by AnnMap (formerly X:Map), broadly as described previously , .Statistical […]


Extensive Co Operation between the Epstein Barr Virus EBNA3 Proteins in the Manipulation of Host Gene Expression and Epigenetic Chromatin Modification

PLoS One
PMCID: 2981562
PMID: 21085583
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0013979

[…] and cDNA. This was then hybridised to an Affymetrix Human Exon 1.0ST array and scanned.Array data was extracted using Expression Console software to generate CEL files. CEL files were summarised with MMBGX (Multi-Mapping Bayesian Gene eXpression) v0.99.5 using the X:Map/Ensembl database for Homo Sapiens (GRCh37) v56 (xmap_homo_sapiens_core_56_37a.tgz). MMBGX uses X:Map mappings between probes and […]
