报告摘要:

Competitive gene-set analysis, also called enrichment analysis, is a widely used tool for interpreting high-throughput biological data such as gene expression data. It aims at testing a known category (e.g. a pathway) of genes for enriched differential expression (DE) signals compared to genes not in the category. Most conventional enrichment testing methods ignore the widespread correlations among genes, which has been shown to result in excessive false positives. We evaluate, both methodologically and empirically, previous methods to account for correlations, and show that they fail to accommodate the DE heterogeneity across genes and can result in severely mis-calibrated type I error and/or power loss. We propose a new framework, MEACA, for gene-set testing based on a mixed effects quasi-likelihood model. Our method flexibly incorporates the unknown distribution of DE effects, and effectively adjusts for completely unknown, unstructured correlations among genes. Compared to existing methods such as GSEA and CAMERA, MEACA enjoys robust and substantially improved control over type I error and maintains good power in a variety of correlation structure and differential expression settings. We also present two real data analyses to illustrate the advantage of our approach.
