[…] set and the mutual exclusivity of mutations in the set, and uses a markov chain monte carlo (mcmc) approach for identifying mutually exclusive gene sets altered in a large fraction of the patients. multi-dendrix (leiserson et al., ) employs the same score as dendrix and extends it to multiple sets, and uses an integer linear program (ilp) based algorithm to simultaneously find multiple sets […]

[…] mcmc algorithm, the blp method is more efficient. a multi-objective optimization model based on a genetic algorithm (moga) was introduced to adjust the trade-off between coverage and exclusivity []. multi-dendrix [] designed a new metric as the sum of dendrix weights and adopted a new programming model to identify multiple modules simultaneously. comdp proposed an exact mathematical programming […]

[…] among different biological pathways and functional modules may shed new lights on the understanding of the cellular mechanisms underlying carcinogenesis. leiserson et al. () generalized dendrix (multi-dendrix) to simultaneously identify multiple driver gene sets in cancer. more importantly, the collaboration among different pathways means these gene sets are likely simultaneously mutated […]

[…] isoforms, variation in mutation types, different background mutation rates, redundancy of the genetic code and others and used a likelihood ratio test to obtain significance levels. moreover, multi-dendrix, drivernet, music, and memo [, , , –] were also developed to identify driver pathways using network-based approaches. an integrated meta-analysis using multiple methods can be accessed […]

[…] these r s scores were grouped according to the crc subtype to determine the p-values, indicating whether a gene contributed significantly to the formation of a specific crc subtype., data input for multi-dendrix analysis was identical to the data input used for nbs analysis, except for genes that shared the same breakpoints, which were now grouped in “pools” (). multi-dendrix parameters […]
