Patient derived xenografts undergo murine specific tumor evolution

Nat Genet
PMCID: 5659952
PMID: 28991255
DOI: 10.1038/ng.3967

[…] inter-lineage differences by including lineage as a covariate in the model. Gene set testing was performed using a parametric approximation to permutation-based testing, implemented in the R package npGSEA. Inter-lineage differences were controlled for by regressing lineage out of both the arm-level CNA calls and the variable of interest. […]


Overlapping Group Logistic Regression with Applications to Genetic Pathway Selection

Cancer Inform
PMCID: 5026200
PMID: 27679461
DOI: 10.4137/CIN.S40043

[…] pproaches and regression models with respect to their implications for pathway selection. Thus, although a variety of extensions and refinements of GSEA have been proposed, such as GSEAlm, ROAST, and npGSEA, we restrict our attention here to GSEA, the most well-known and widely used method in this group.Finally, we provide a publicly available implementation of the OGLasso method described in this […]
