2014-4742samples-21tumors-Cancer5000-set-254-genes

文献名: Discovery and saturation analysis of  cancer genes across 21 tumour types.
我们知道对一个癌症的多个样本进行研究,其实很少高达20%样本突变 most intermediate frequencies (2–20%),还有很多低频突变,因为研究样本不够,从而不被发现
我们从 4,742个tumor-normal pairs的外显子测序数据集研究了somatic point mutations,共21种癌症。
癌症基因可能集中于以下七个功能:
proliferation,
apoptosis,
genome stability,
chromatin regulation,
immune evasion,
RNA processing
protein homeostasis
我们用有放回的抽样方法对数据进行统计,得出结论:如果我们对某个癌症的研究样本高达500-6000个的话,可以发现更多的临床低频突变。
这篇文章是为了解决以下三个问题:
1、大规模的研究cancer就能达到鉴别出所有的cancer driver genes的程度吗?(Coverage of known cancer genes)
2,增大样本量是否会揭示很多cancer driver genes?(Analysis of novel candidate cancer genes)
3、我们距离对所有的cancer driver genes的完全认知还有多远?(Saturation analysis)
突变数据的分析流程是Broad’s stringent filtering and annotation pipeline
突变情况如下:
3,078,483 somatic single nucleotide variations(SSNVs),
77,270 small insertions and deletions (SINDELs)
29,837 somatic di-, tri- or oligonucleotide variations (DNVs, TNVs and ONVs, respectively)
an average of 672 per tumour–normal pair
包括:
540,831 missense,
207,144 synonymous,
46,264 nonsense,
33,637 splice-site
2,294,935 non-coding mutations
我们找驱动基因的方法是:
We used the most recent version of the MutSig suite of tools
which looks for three independent signals:
high mutational burden relative to background expectation,
accounting for heterogeneity;
clustering of mutations within the gene;
enrichment of mutations in evolutionarily conserved sites.
我们把以上MutSig的几个独立组件分析得到的p-value组合起来,判断驱动基因,我们即对每种癌症做了单独分析,同时也对这21种癌症做了综合分析。
我们找到的驱动基因的结果:
单独对各个癌症进行分析,可以总共找到334个基因,当然不同癌症找到的基因有交集。
These 334 pairs involve 224 distinct genes.
The number of genes detected per tumour type varied considerably (range of 1–58)
找到的驱动基因的个数差异主要取决于癌症种类的不同,然后,跟该癌症的样本量有关。
只有22种基因能在超过三种癌症里面都是被判定为驱动基因。
如果我们把21种癌症合并起来找驱动基因,可以找到114个,其中有30个是单独对各个癌症进行分析所找不到的,有80个在单独癌症分析可以找到。
所以单独对各个癌症进行分析找到的224个基因里面,有140个是合并癌症分析找不到的。其实画一个韦恩图就很好理解了。
对各个癌症进行分析,共21次分析,加上合并分析,共22次飞行,总共可以得到a Cancer5000 set containing 254 genes.
我们再严格分析一下254个基因在Cancer5000 set,得到219 distinct genes.叫做Cancer5000-S (for ‘stringent’) gene。
 Cancer Gene Census (CGC)组织的 (v65)版本包含着130个cancer genes driven by somatic point mutations,其中82个被我们这次统计分析发现啦。
 Four genes encode anti-proliferative proteins, in which loss-offunction mutations would be expected to contribute to oncogenesis.
 Sixadditionalgenesencode proteins thatare clearlyinvolved incell  proliferation: RHEB, RHOA, SOS1, ELF3, SGK1 and MYOCD.
 Five genes encode pro-apoptotic factors, in which loss-of-function mutations would be expected to promote oncogenesis
Six genes encode proteins related to genome stability.
Fivegenesareassociatedwithchromatinregulation
Three genes encode proteins whose loss is expected to help tumours evade immune attack
Three genes are associated with RNA processing and metabolism.
One gene, TRIM23, is involved in protein homeostasis.
Beyond these 33 genes, the set of 81 novel genes is likely to contain
additional true cancer genes.
有返回抽样方法是:An effective test is to perform ‘down-sampling’; that is, to study how the number of discoveries increases with sample size, by repeating the analysis on random subsets of samples of various smaller sizes.
饱和度分析结果: 还远未到饱和,不同突变频率的基因被发现的个数随着样本量的增大而增多的速度不同。
Genes mutated in 20% of tumours are approaching saturation;
those mutated at frequencies of 10–20% are still rising rapidly, but at a decreasing rate;
those at 5–10%  increasing linearly;
and those at ,5% are increasingly at an accelerating rate.
我们对样本量的要求是:突变背景高的癌症(如,黑色素瘤)需要的样品更多,而那些突变背景低的癌症(如成神经细胞瘤)需要近650个样本就可以很好的分析驱动基因了
Creating a reasonably comprehensive catalogue of candidate cancer genes mutated in 2% of patients will require between approximately 650 samples (for tumours with ,0.5 mutations per Mb, such
as neuroblastoma) to approximately 5,300 samples (for melanoma, with 12.9 mutations per Mb)

2015-MADGiC-identify-cancer-driver-gene

最新的一个寻找cancer 的driver gene的软件:
Cancer is thought to result from the accumulation of causal  somatic mutations throughout the lifetime of an individual.
这些cancer-driving mutations 主要影响三类基因: 1、oncogenes 2、tumor-suppressor genes 3, stablity geens
第一个突变是tumorigenesis ,随后的突变就 driver tumor progression
识别这些突变非常有利于了解gene function 和药物靶点设计
区分 driver genes 和 passenger  genes 能更好的利用各种数据库得到的海量突变信息
基于频率的区分方法 rely on an estimate of a background mutation rate which  represents the rate of random passenger mutations.
也就是文献(Ding et al., 2008).提出的方法,但它忽略了以下四点
1、mutation type (transition versus transversion)
2、nucleotide context(which base is at the mutation site
3、dinucleotide context (which bases are located at neighboring sites to the mutation),
4、expression level of the gene
然后有文献提出了以下三种改进
Sjoblom et al.(2006) account for nucleotide and dinucleotide context in searching  for drivers of breast and colorectal cancer.
MuSiC (Dees et al.,2012) accounts for mutation type and allows for sample-specific mutation rates;
Lawrence et al.(2013) (MutSigCV) also allow for the inclusion of gene-specific factors such as expression level and replication timing.
但是他们有个共同延续下来的的缺点,就是默认驱动基因的突变频率要高于背景突变频率。
实际上,除了突变频率,还有一些criteria也很重要, 所以有两个数据库SIFT (first reported by Ng and Henikoff (2001), later updated by Kumar et al. (2009)),  Polyphen (Adzhubei et al., 2010)  和MutationAssessor (Reva et al., 2011)
这两个数据库整合了 sequence context, position, and protein characteristics to assess a mutation’s  functional impact.
总结一下identity cancer driver genes的criteria
1、mutation frequency,
2、mutation type,
3、gene-specific features such as replication timing and expression level that are known to affect background rates of mutation,
4、mutation-specific scores that assess functional impact, and the spatial patterning of mutations that only becomes apparent when thousands of samples are considered.
以前的方法都只是部分涉及到上面的criteria
而我们提出了a unified empirical Bayesian Model-based Approach for identifying Driver Genes in Cancer (MADGiC) that utilizes each of these features.

2014-REVIEW-identifying driver mutation in sequenced cancer genome

somatic  mutations 含义很广,包括:SNVs,Indel,CNAs,SVs等
However, the resulting sequencing datasets are large and complex, obscuring the clinically important mutations in a background of errors, noise, and random mutations.
Cancer is driven largely by somatic mutations that accumulate in the genome over an individual’s lifetime, with additional contributions from epigenetic and transcriptomic alterations
低通量时代研究,成功例子: imatinib has been used to target cells expressing the BCR-ABL fusion gene  in chronic myeloid leukemia
gefitinib has been used to inhibit the epidermal growth factor receptor in lung cancer
但远远不够。
NGS的三大挑战:1,indentying somatic mutations,误差/ 肿瘤异质性 2,识别driver genes 3,确定由somatic mutations 改变的pathways和其它生物过程
误差来源:optical PCR duplicates, GC-bias, strand bias (where reads indicating a possible mutation only align to one strand of DNA) and alignment artifacts resulting from low complexity or repetitive regions in the genome.
most methods for somatic mutation detection address only a subset of the possible sources of error,call snp的软件众多
identifying driver mutations的三个要点:
1,identifying recurrent mutations;
2,predicting the functional impact of individual mutations;
3,assessing combinations of mutations using pathways, interaction networks, or statistical correlations.
三个要点分别衍生了大量的软件,它们的问题在于:
1,直接看突变频率的那些软件to determine whether the observed number of mutations in the gene is significantly greater than the number expected according to a background mutation rate (BMR).
BMR 实在是太难确定了,低了会导致很多假阳性,而高了,又错过很多真实的driver mutations,但是突变频率非常高的那些基因肯定是没有问题的,比如说TP53,无论什么样的算法都会认为它是driver gene
2,考虑突变对蛋白功能的影响评分的那些软件,引入了一些先验假设:
evolutionary conservation,
known protein domains,
non-random clustering of mutations,
protein structure,
3,pathways, interaction networks, and de novo approaches的那些软件:
pathway(KEGG,GO,GSEA) 4个limitations,首先,大多数 annotated gene sets 包含的基因数太多,而我们的突变基因占该gene set的比例远达不到统计显著性。
然后,pathway并不是独立的,各个pathway之间的联系更重要
接着,把基因分割成pathway这样的小单元,忽略了单元外的联系
最后,只关注已知的 pathways, or gene set
过去的五年见证了癌症基因组测序研究翻天覆地的变化,但是距离它真正的临床应用还有以下几个挑战:
首先,我们忽略了non-coding somatic mutations
其次,很多我们定义的癌症种类其实是a mixture of these subtypes
然后,哪些癌症是可以合并研究的
最后,不同的NGS数据如何综合研究,包括WGS,WES,RNA sequencing, DNA methylation, and chromatin modifications
对某些患者来说,癌症精准医学已经来临,但是对大部分病人来说,前面的路还很长。

2014-review-Next-generation sequencing to guide cancer therapy


 This reductionist thinking led the initial theories on carcinogenesis to be centered on how many “hits” or genetic mutations were necessary for a tumor to develop.
还原论者认为导致癌症发生发展的原因集中在一些必须因子-"hit" or genetic mutations
由于这个假设,早期探索多种癌症的遗传基础的方法主要是低通量的研究具体某些特定的基因或者变异情况。
分析方法的选择:microarray vs WGS vs WES
临床样品的选择:fresh frozen tissue  / FFPE specimens /CTCs / ctDNA
临床NGS数据分析方法:mapping --> SNVs CNVs and SVs --> annotation
挑战:1,低频突变很难从测序错误中区分开
            2,很多临床相关的DNA fushions发生在非编码区,所以WES也会错过不少信息的
临床NGS数据注释 :多种数据库,多种数据分析方法

文献笔记-2015-nature-molecular analysis of gastric cancer新的分类及预后调查

文献:Molecular analysis of gastric cancer identifies subtypes associated with distinct clinical outcomes

A small pre-defined set of gene expression signatures

epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT)  上皮细胞向间充质细胞转化
microsatellite instability (MSI) 微卫星不稳定性
cytokine signaling 细胞因子信号
cell proliferation  细胞增殖
DNA methylation DNA甲基化
TP53 activity TP53活性
gastric tissue 胃组织

 

经典的分类方法是:Gastric cancer may be subdivided into 3 distinct subtypes—proximal, diffuse, and distal gastric cancer—based on histopathologic and anatomic criteria. Each subtype is associated with unique epidemiology.

我们用主成分分析Principal component anaylsis (PCA)

PC1

PC2

PC3

这三个主成分与上面的七个特征是相关联的。

根据我们的主成分分析,可以把我们的300个GC样本分成如下四组,命名如下:

Gene expression signatures define four molecular subtypes of GC:

MSI (n = 68),

MSS/EMT (n = 46),

MSS/TP53+ (n = 79)

MSS/TP53− (n = 107)

然后用本文的分类方法,测试了另外另个published数据,还是分成四个组

(MSI, MSS/EMT, MSS/TP53+ and MSS/TP53-)

分别是TCGA数据库的;n = 46, n = 62, n = 50 and n = 47.

Singapore的研究; n = 12, n = 85, n = 39 and n = 63 respectively

我们这样的分组可以得到一些规律:

(i) The MSS/EMT subtype occurred at a significantly younger age (P = 3e-2) than did other subtypes. The majority (>80%) of the subjects in this subtype were diagnosed with diffuse-type (P < 1e-4) at stage III/IV(P = 1e-3).

(ii) The MSI subtype occurred predominantly in the antrum (75%), >60% of subjects had the intestinal subtype, and >50% of subjects were diagnosed at an early stage (I/II).

(iii) Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection occurred more frequently in the MSS/TP53+ group (n = 12/18, P = 2e-4) than in the other groups.

 

然后我们对我们的300个样本做了生存分析:

预后: MSI  >   MSS/TP53+    >   MSS/TP53 >  MSS/EMT

Next, we validated the survival trend of GC subtypes in three independent cohorts: Samsung Medical Center cohort 2 (SMC-2,n = 277, GSE26253)31,

Singapore  cohort(n = 200, GSE15459)21 and

TCGA gastric cohort (n = 205).

We saw that the GC subtypes showed a significant association with overall survival

结论:我们这样的分类是最合理的,跟各个类别的预后非常相关。

 

然后我们看看突变模式:

the MSI~ hypermutation ~KRAS (23.3%), the PI3K-PTEN-mTOR pathway (42%), ALK (16.3%) and ARID1A (44.2%)18.

We observed enrichment of PIK3CA H1047R mutations in the MSI samples

we saw enrichment of E542K and E545K mutations in MSS tumors

The EMT subtype had a lower number of mutation events when compared to the other MSS groups(P = 1e−3).

The MSS/TP53− subtype showed the highest prevalence of TP53 mutations (60%), with a low frequency of other mutations

the MSS/TP53+ subtype showed a relatively higher prevalence (compared to MSS/TP53−) of mutations in APC, ARID1A, KRAS, PIK3CA and SMAD4.

再看看拷贝数变异情况:

再看看与另外两个研究团队的分类情况的比较

The TCGA study reported expression clusters (subtypes named C1–C4) and genomic subtypes (subtypes named EBV+, MSI, Genome Stable (GS) and Chromosomal Instability (CIN)).

A follow-up study of the Singapore cohort21 described three expression subtypes (Proliferative, Metabolic and Reactive)

However, a consensus on clinically relevant subtypes that encompasses molecular heterogeneity and that can be used in preclinical and clinical research has not been reported.

Here we report the molecular classification of GC linked not only to distinct patterns of genomic alterations, but also to recurrence pattern and prognosis across multiple GC cohorts.

 

 

microsatellite instability

英文简称 : MI
中文全称 : 微卫星不稳定性
所属分类 : 生物科学
词条简介 : 微卫星不稳定性(microsatellite instability,MI)检测是基于VNTR的发现,细胞内基因组含有大量的碱基重复序列,一般将6-7bp的串联重称为小卫星DNA(minisatellite DNA),又称为VNTR。而将1-4bp的串联重复称为微卫星DNA,又称简单重复序列(simple repeat sequence,SRS)。SRS是一种最常见的重复序列之一,具有丰富的多态性、高度杂合性、重组纺低等优点。最常见的为双核苷酸重复,即(AC)n和(TG)n。研究表胆,在n≥104时,2bp重复序列在人群中呈高度多态性。SRS广泛存在于原核和真核基因组中,约占真核基因组的5%,是近年来快速发展起来的新的DNA多态性标志之一。策卫星稳定性(MI)是指简重复序列的增加或丢失。MI首先在结肠癌中观察到,1993年在HNPCC中观察到多条染色体均有(AC)n重复序列的增加或毛失,以后相继在胃癌、胰腺癌、肺癌、膀胱癌、乳腺癌、前列腺癌及其他肿瘤等也好现存在微卫星不稳定现象,提示MI可能是肿瘤细胞的另一重要分子结果显示 ,MI与肿瘤与发展有关,MI仅在肿瘤细胞中发现,从未在正常组织中检测到。在原发与移肿瘤中,MI均交分布于整个肿瘤。晚期胃癌的MI频率显著高于早期胃癌。

文献笔记-2010-R-softeware-identify-cancer_driver_genes

我们用188 non-small cell lung tumors数据来测试了一个R语言程序,find driver genes in cancer ~
软件地址如下:http://linus.nci.nih.gov/Data/YounA/software.zip
这是一个R语言程序,里面有readme,用法很简单。
准备好两个文件,分别是silent_mutation_table.txt and nonsilent_mutation_table.txt ,它们都是普通文本格式数据,内容如下,就是把找到的snp格式化,根据注释结果分成silent和nonsilent即可。
#Ensembl_gene_id Chromosome Start_position Variant_Type Reference_Allele Tumor_Seq_Allele1 Tumor_Seq_Allele2 Tumor_Sample_Barcode
#ENSG00000122477 1 100390656 SNP G G A TCGA-23-1022-01A-02W-0488-09
然后直接运行程序包里面的主程序,在R语言里面source("main_R_script.r")
We reanalyzed sequence data for 623 candidate genes in 188 non-small cell lung tumors using the new method.
to identify genes that are frequently mutated and thereby are expected to have primary roles in thedevelopment of tumor
To find these driver genes, each gene is tested for whether its mutation rate is significantly higher than the background (or passenger) mutation rate.

Some investigators (Sjoblom et al., 2006) further divide mutations into several types according to the nucleotide and the neighboring nucleotides of the mutations.

Ding et al. (2008)的方法的三个缺点:
1、different types of mutations can have different impact on proteins.(越影响蛋白功能的突变,越有可能是driver mutation)
2、different samples have different background mutation rates. (在高突变背景的样本中的突变,很可能是高突变背景的原因,而不是因为癌症)
3、a different number of non-silent mutations can occur at each base pair according to the genetic code.(比如Tryptophan仅仅只有一个密码子,而arginine高达6个密码子)

我们提出的方法的4个优点是:
1,我们对非同义突变根据它们对蛋白功能的影响进行了评级打分。
2,我们允许不同的样品有着不同的BMR
3,that whether the mutation is non-silent or silent depends on the genetic code
4,we take into account uncertainties in the background mutation rate by using empirical Bayes methods

还有5个需要改进的地方:
1,However, the functional impact is also dependent on the position in which a mutation occurs.(我们仅仅考虑了突变对氨基酸的改变)
2,the current scoring system which assigns mutation scores in the order: missense mutation<inframe indel<mutation in splice sites<frameshift indel=nonsense mutation may be biased toward identifying tumor suppressor genes over oncogenes.
3,we may refine our background mutation model in Table 1 so that all six types of mutations, A:T→G:C, A:T→C:G, A: T→T :A,G:C→A:T, G:C→T :A, G:C→C:G have separate mutation rates.
4,we did not take into account correlations among mutations in identifying driver genes.
5,one might combine both copy number variation and sequencing data to identify driver genes.

HGNC定义的gene Symbol转为ensemble数据库的ID,的R语言代码:
library(biomaRt)
ensembl=useMart("ensembl",dataset = "hsapiens_gene_ensembl")
all.gene.table = read.table("all_gene.symbol", header=F)
convert=getBM(attributes = c("chromosome_name","ensembl_gene_id","hgnc_symbol"),filters =c("hgnc_symbol"),values=all.gene.table[,1],mart=ensembl)
chromosome=c(1:22,"X","Y","M")
convert=convert[!is.na(match(convert[,1],chromosome)),2:3] #remove names whose matching chromosome is not 1-22, X, or Y.
convert=convert[rowSums(convert=="")==0,]
write.table(convert,"ensembl2symbol.list",quote = F,row.names =F,col.names =F)
write.table(convert,"all_gene_name.txt",quote = F,row.names =F,col.names =F)

一个gene Symbol可能对应着多个ensemble ID号,但是在每个染色体上面是一对一的关系。
有些gene Symbol可能找不到ensemble ID号,一般情况是因为这个gene Symbol并不是纯粹的HGNC定义的,或者是比较陈旧的ID。
比如下面的TIGAR ,就很可能被写作是C12orf5
Aliases for TIGAR Gene
TP53 Induced Glycolysis Regulatory Phosphatase 2 3
TP53-Induced Glycolysis And Apoptosis Regulator 2 3 4
C12orf5 3 4 6

R语言实现并行计算

前面我提到有一个大的运算任务需要很久才完成,所以用到了进度条来监控过程,但并不是改善了计算速度,所以需要用到并行计算,我又在网上找了找。

同样也是一个包,跟matlab的实现过程很像

library(parallel)

cl.cores <- detectCores() #检查当前电脑可用核数。

cl <- makeCluster(cl.cores) #使用刚才检测的核并行运算

#这里用clusterEvalQ或者par开头的apply函数族就可以进行并行计算啦

stopCluster(cl)

R-Doc里这样描述makeCluster函数:Creates a set of copies of R running in parallel and communicating over sockets. 即同时创建数个R进行并行运算。在该函数执行后就已经开始并行运算了,电脑可能会变卡一点。尤其在执行par开头的函数时。

在并行运算环境下,常用的一些计算方法如下:

1、clusterEvalQ(cl,expr)函数利用创建的cl执行expr。这里利用刚才创建的cl核并行运算expr。expr是执行命令的语句,不过如果命令太长的话,一般写到文件里比较好。比如把想执行的命令放在Rcode.r里:clusterEvalQ(cl,source(file="Rcode.r"))

2、par开头的apply函数族。这族函数和apply的用法基本一样,不过要多加一个参数cl。一般如果cl创建如上面cl <- makeCluster(cl.cores)的话,这个参数可以直接用作parApply(cl=cl,…)。当然Apply也可以是Sapply,Lapply等等。注意par后面的第一个字母是要大写的,而一般的apply函数族第一个字母不大写。

另外要注意,即使构建了并行运算的核,不使用parApply()函数,而使用apply()函数的话,则仍然没有实现并行运算。换句话说,makeCluster只是创建了待用的核,而不是并行运算的环境。

参考:http://www.r-bloggers.com/lang/chinese/1131

然后我模仿着用并行计算实现自己的需求

#it did work very fast
library(parallel)
cl.cores <- detectCores()
cl <- makeCluster(cl.cores)
clusterExport(cl, "all_dat_t")  #这里是重点,因为并行计算里面用到了自定义函数
clusterExport(cl, "all_prob_id") #但是这个函数需要用到这两个数据,所以需要把这两个数据加载到并行计算环境里面
prob_202723_s_at=parSapply( #我这里用的parSapply来实现并行计算
cl=cl,  #其中cl是我前面探测到的core数量,

deviation_prob, #deviation_prob是我待并行处理的向量

test_pro #这里其实应该是一个自定义函数,我这里就不写出来了,对上面的deviation_prob向量的每个探针都进行判断
)

28

R语言实现进度条

我也是临时在网上搜索到的教程,然后简单看了一下就实现了,其实就是就用到了一个名称为tcltk的包,直接查看函数tkProgressBar就可以知道怎么用啦!

下面是网上的一个小的示例代码(么有实际意义,仅为举例而已):

library(tcltk2)

u <- 1:2000

plot.new()

pb <- tkProgressBar("进度","已完成 %",  0, 100)

for(i in u) {

x<-rnorm(u)

points(x,x^2,col=i)

info <- sprintf("已完成 %d%%", round(i*100/length(u)))

setTkProgressBar(pb, i*100/length(u), sprintf("进度 (%s)", info), info)

}

close(pb)#关闭进度条

但是下面的代码是我模仿上面这个教程自己实现的。

[R]

# 以下是实现进度条
library(tcltk2)
plot.new()
pb <- tkProgressBar("进度","已完成 %", 0, 100)
prob_202723_s_at_value=rep(0,length(deviation_prob))
start_time=Sys.time() #这里可以计时,因为要实现进度条的一般都是需要很长运算时间
for (i in 1:length(deviation_prob)) {
tmp=test_pro(deviation_prob[i]) #test_pro是我自定义的一个函数,判断该探针是否符合要求。
if (length(tmp)!=0){prob_202723_s_at_value[i]=tmp}
info <- sprintf("已完成 %d%%", round(i*100/length(deviation_prob)))  #进度条就是根据循环里面的i来看看循环到哪一步了
setTkProgressBar(pb, i*100/length(deviation_prob), sprintf("进度 (%s)", info), info)
}
close(pb)#关闭进度条
end_time=Sys.time()
cat(end_time-start_time)

[/R]

R语言-比较数据框提取列的速度

结论:从数据框里面取某列数据,三种方法的时间消耗区别很大,直接用索引值,是最快的,而用$符号其次,用列名最慢。

我在R里面建立了一个表达量矩阵,列名是一个个样品,行是一个个探针,矩阵值是该探针在该样品测定的表达量。

那么,如果我要看看名为"202723_s_at"的探针的表达向量与其它所有探针的表达向量的相关系数,我可以用以下三种方法:

> system.time(apply(all_dat_t,2,function(x)  cor(all_dat_t$"202723_s_at",x)))

user  system elapsed

22.93    0.03   23.03

> system.time(apply(all_dat_t,2,function(x)  cor(all_dat_t[,"202723_s_at"],x)))

Timing stopped at: 92.02 5.32 97.66

太耗时间了,省去

> system.time(apply(all_dat_t,2,function(x)  cor(all_dat_t[,grep(prob,names(all_dat_t))],x)))

Timing stopped at: 13.55 0.04 13.66

> prob_num=grep(prob,names(all_dat_t))

> system.time(apply(all_dat_t,2,function(x)  cor(all_dat_t[,prob_num],x)))

user  system elapsed

8.14    0.01    8.17

可以看出,如果我首先根据探针名,grep出它在该表达量矩阵的列数,然后用列数来提取它的表达量是最快的,而且时间改善非常明显!

我们再探究一下cor函数的效率问题

探究的矩阵有54675个变量,每个变量均有189个观测值,如果取这个大矩阵的部分变量来求相关系数,结果如下!

> system.time(cor(all_dat_t[,1:10]))

user  system elapsed

0.001   0.000   0.001

> system.time(cor(all_dat_t[,1:100]))

user  system elapsed

0.003   0.000   0.003

> system.time(cor(all_dat_t[,1:1000]))

user  system elapsed

0.107   0.002   0.108

> system.time(cor(all_dat_t[,1:10000]))

user  system elapsed

11.102   0.849  11.983

> system.time(cor(all_dat_t)) 约六分钟也是可以搞定的

但是如果cor(all_dat_t),六分钟后得到的相关系数矩阵约32G,非常恐怖!

但是它很明显没有把这个32G相关系数矩阵存储到内存,因为我的机器本来就16G内存。我至今不能明白R具体实现机理

根据基因表达量对样品进行分类ConsensusClusterPlus

bioconductor系列的包都是一样的安装方式:
source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite("ConsensusClusterPlus")

这个包是我见过最简单的包, 加载只有做好输入数据,只需要一句话即可运行,然后默认输出所有结果

读这个包的readme,很容易学会
就是做好一个需要来进行分类的样品的表达量矩阵。或者选择上一篇日志用GEOquery这个包下载的表达量矩阵也可以进行分析
因为这个包是用ALL数据来做测试的,所以可以直接加载这个数据结果,这样就能得到表达矩阵啦

对上面这个芯片表达数据我们一般会简单的进行normalization ,然后取在各个样品差异很大的那些gene或者探针的数据来进行聚类分析
mads=apply(d,1,mad)
d=d[rev(order(mads))[1:5000],]

d = sweep(d,1, apply(d,1,median,na.rm=T))

#也可以对这个d矩阵用DESeq的normalization 进行归一化,取决于具体情况
library(ConsensusClusterPlus)
#title=tempdir() #这里一般改为自己的目录
title="./" #所有的图片以及数据都会输出到这里的
results = ConsensusClusterPlus(d,maxK=6,reps=50,pItem=0.8,pFeature=1,
 title=title,clusterAlg="hc",distance="pearson",seed=1262118388.71279,plot="png")
这样就OK了,你指定的目录下面会输出大于9个图片

clipboard

大家看看说明书就知道这个包的输出文件是什么了。
很多参数都是需要调整的,一般我们的maxK=6是根据实验原理来调整,如果你的样品应该是要分成6类以上,那么你就要把maxK=6调到一点。
查看结果results[[2]][["consensusClass"] 可以看到各个样品被分到了哪个类别里面去
results[[3]][["consensusClass"]
results[[4]][["consensusClass"] 等等

从GEO数据库下载矩阵数据-可以直接进行下游分析

bioconductor系列的包都是一样的安装方式:
source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
    biocLite("GEOquery")

以前GEO数据库主要是microarray的芯片数据,后来有了RNA-seq,如果同时做多个样品的RNA-seq,表达量矩阵后来也可以上传到GEO数据库里面,只有看到文献里面有提到GEO数据库,都可以通过这个R包俩进行批量下载,其实就是网页版的一个API调用而已:

GEO数据库里面有四种数据

At the most basic level of organization of GEO, there are four basic entity types.
 The first three (Sample, Platform, and Series) are supplied by users;
the fourth, the dataset, is compiled and curated by GEO sta from the user-submitted data.
GEO accession number (GPLxxx). 
GEO accession number (GSMxxx)
GEO accession number (GSExxx). 
GEO DataSets (GDSxxx)
记住大小关系:一个GDS可以有多个GSM,一个GSM可以有多个GSE,至于GPL,一般不接触的
我们通常接触的都是GSE系列(一个GSE里面有多个GSM)的数据,而且这个包最重要的就是一个getGEO函数。
只要你通过文献确定了你的检索号,就可以通过这个函数来下载啦
检索号一般是A character string representing a GEO object for download and
          parsing.  (eg., 'GDS505','GSE2','GSM2','GPL96'

这个函数有很多参数,除非你需要下载的文件,那么就设置destdir到你喜欢的目录,如果只需要表达量数据就不用了。

 getGEO(GEO = NULL, filename = NULL, destdir = tempdir(), GSElimits=NULL,
     GSEMatrix=TRUE,AnnotGPL=FALSE)
例如:
gds <- getGEO("GDS10") 会返回一个对象,而且下载数据一般会在tmp目录下面,当然如果你需要保存这些文件,你可以自己制定下载目录及文件名。
gse2553 <- getGEO("GSE2553")
GDS2eSet函数可以把上面这个下载函数得到的对象(要确定是GDS而不是GSE)变成表达对象
pData和exprs函数都可以处理上面这个表达对象,从而分别得到样品描述矩阵和样品表达量矩阵
综合一起就是
g4100 <- GDS2eSet(getGEO("GDS4100"))
g4102 <- GDS2eSet(getGEO("GDS4102"))
e4102<-exprs(g4102)
e4100<-exprs(g4100)
这样的代码,这个e4100和e4102就都是一个数值矩阵啦,可以进行下游分析,但是如果是下载的GSM数据
就用下面这个代码,GSE26253_series_matrix.txt是通过GSEMatrix=TRUE这个参数特意下载到你的目录的
expr_dat=read.table("GSE26253_series_matrix.txt",comment.char="!",stringsAsFactors=F)
这样读取也是一个数值矩阵
具体大家可以看这个包的说明书
#Download GDS file, put it in the current directory, and load it:
gds858 <- getGEO('GDS858', destdir=".")
如果使用了GSEMatrix=TRUE这个参数,那么除了下载soft文件,还有表达量矩阵文件,可以直接用read.table读取那个文件。
#Or, open an existing GDS file (even if its compressed):
gds858 <- getGEO(filename='GDS858.soft.gz')
下面这个下载的是GSE对象,GDS对象还有大一点
GEOquery-下载结果gds对象

hpv病毒研究调研

最新文献 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26086163 上面有提到了hpv的研究现状

As of May 30, 2015, 201 different HPV types had been completely sequenced and officially recognized and divided into five PV-genera: Alpha-, Beta-, Gamma-, Mu-, and Nupapillomavirus.

根据文献,我找到了hpv所有已知测序种类的参考基因组网站:

http://www.hpvcenter.se/html/refclones.html

到目前(2015年7月31日15:17:59)已经有了205种,我爬取它们的genebank ID号,然后用python程序批量下载了它们的序列,能下载的序列共179条,都是8K左右的碱基序列。

image001

根据genebank ID或者其它ID号批量下载核酸序列的脚本如下:

[python]</pre>
import sys

import time

import random

from Bio import Entrez

ids=[]

infile=sys.argv[1]

for line in open(infile,'r'):

line=line.strip()

ids.append(line)

for i in range(1,len(ids)):

#       t = random.randrange(0,5)

handle =

Entrez.efetch(db="nucleotide", id=ids[i],rettype="fasta",email="jmzeng1314@163.com")

#       time.sleep(t)

print handle.read()

[/python]

脚本使用很简单,保持输入文件是一行一个ID号即可。

同时,根据文献我们也能得到hbv病毒提取方法

当然,我是看不懂的。

image003

同样的拿到下载的178条序列我们可以做一个进化树,当然,这个文章已经做好了,我就不做了,进化树其实蛮简单的。

下载179条hpv序列,每条序列都是8KB左右

我还用了R脚本批量下载

library(ape)

a=read.table("hpv_all.ID") #输入文件是一行一个ID号即可

for (i in 1:nrow(a)){

tmp=read.GenBank(a[i,1],seq.names = a[1,1],as.character = T)

write.dna(tmp,"tmp.fa",format="fasta", append=T,colsep = "")

}

然后用muscle做比对,参照我之前的笔记

http://www.bio-info-trainee.com/?p=659
http://www.bio-info-trainee.com/?p=660
http://www.bio-info-trainee.com/?p=626

muscle -in mouse_J.pro -out mouse_J.pro.a

muscle -maketree -in mouse_J.pro.a -out mouse_J.phy

貌似时间有点长呀,最后还莫名其妙的挂掉了,可能是我的服务器配置有点低。

进化树如下所示:

用perl把含有简并碱基的引物序列还原成多条序列

这篇博客的程序是错的,请看我最新博客:http://www.bio-info-trainee.com/1528.html

简并碱基对应表格如下;

R:ag
Y:CT
M:AC
K:GT
S:gc
W:AT
H:atc
B:gtc
V:gac
D:GAT
N:ATgc
把这个文本拷贝到txt文件里面保存好,或者直接写入hash里面也行!

[perl]

open FH,"ATCG.txt";

while(<FH>){

chomp;

@F=split/:/;

$hash{$F[0]}=uc $F[1];#右边就是简并表格

}

open FH1,"primer.txt";

while(<FH1>){

next if />/;

chomp;

primer2multiple($_); #对每个含有简并碱基的引物都进行以下函数处理

}

sub primer2multiple{

$primer=$_[0];

$prod=1;

$primer_len=length $primer ;

foreach $i (0..$primer_len-1){

$char=substr($primer,$i,1);

if ($char !~/[ATCG]/){$prod*=length $hash{$char}}

}

$new="";

foreach $i (0..$primer_len-1){

$char=substr($primer,$i,1);

if ($char =~/[ATCG]/){$new.=$char x $prod}

else {$tmp=length $hash{$char};$new.=$hash{$char} x ($prod/$tmp)}

}

die "error!" if   $primer_len*$prod != length $new ;

foreach $i (0..$prod-1){

$tmp="";

for(my $j=$i;$j<(length($new));$j+=$prod){$tmp.=substr($new,$j,1)}

print "$tmp\n";

}

}

[/perl]

可以直接调用这个函数即可primer2multiple('ATGCVHGT');

就可以看到简并碱基被替换啦,就是那个V和H

perl用递归法得到允许多个错配的模式匹配

如果我要匹配一个字符串$a="ATTCCGGGAT";那么直接在shell里面grep它即可,写脚本也行$seq =~ /$a/;,但是如果我想查找这个字符串的模糊匹配,允许一个错配的情况,那么就非常多了!这时候简单的匹配已经不能达到目的,但是我们仍然可以用perl强大的正则匹配功能达到目的。

比如,它的匹配模式应该:

/.TTCCGGGAT/

/A.TCCGGGAT/

/AT.CCGGGAT/等等,可以把这些模式都综合起来就是下面这个

$b=(?^:(?:A(?:T(?:T(?:C(?:C(?:G(?:G(?:G(?:A.|.T)|.AT)|.GAT)|.GGAT)|.GGGAT)|.CGGGAT)|.CCGGGAT)|.TCCGGGAT)|.TTCCGGGAT))

所以我们就应该通过程序来生成这个字符串,然后用

$seq =~ /$b/;来替代$seq =~ /$a/;

而允许两个错配的格式就更复杂了:

(?^:(?:A(?:T(?:T(?:C(?:C(?:G(?:G(?:G..|.(?:A.|.T))|.(?:G(?:A.|.T)|.AT))|.(?:G(?:G(?:A.|.T)|.AT)|.GAT))|.(?:G(?:G(?:G(?:A.|.T)|.AT)|.GAT)|.GGAT))|.(?:C(?:G(?:G(?:G(?:A.|.T)|.AT)|.GAT)|.GGAT)|.GGGAT))|.(?:C(?:C(?:G(?:G(?:G(?:A.|.T)|.AT)|.GAT)|.GGAT)|.GGGAT)|.CGGGAT))|.(?:T(?:C(?:C(?:G(?:G(?:G(?:A.|.T)|.AT)|.GAT)|.GGAT)|.GGGAT)|.CGGGAT)|.CCGGGAT))|.(?:T(?:T(?:C(?:C(?:G(?:G(?:G(?:A.|.T)|.AT)|.GAT)|.GGAT)|.GGGAT)|.CGGGAT)|.CCGGGAT)|.TCCGGGAT)))

[perl]

$a="ATTCCGGGAT";
$one_match=fuzzy_pattern($a,1);
print "$one_match\n";

sub fuzzy_pattern {
my ($original_pattern, $mismatches_allowed) = @_;
$mismatches_allowed >= 0
or die "Number of mismatches must be greater than or equal to zero\n";
my $new_pattern = make_approximate($original_pattern, $mismatches_allowed);
return qr/$new_pattern/;
}
sub make_approximate {
my ($pattern, $mismatches_allowed) = @_;
if ($mismatches_allowed == 0) { return $pattern }
elsif (length($pattern) <= $mismatches_allowed)
{ $pattern =~ tr/ACTG/./; return $pattern }
else {
my ($first, $rest) = $pattern =~ /^(.)(.*)/;
my $after_match = make_approximate($rest, $mismatches_allowed);
if ($first =~ /[ACGT]/) {
my $after_miss = make_approximate($rest, $mismatches_allowed-1);
return "(?:$first$after_match|.$after_miss)";
}
else { return "$first$after_match" }
}
}

[/perl]

只需要控制$one_match=fuzzy_pattern($a,1);里面的参数即可控制自己想要的匹配情况。

然后把生成的匹配模式用了进行序列匹配$seq =~ /$one_mismatch/;

这个程序的重点就是解析需要生成的匹配字符串规则,然后用递归来生成这个匹配字符串。

这种匹配,在引物搜索特别有用。

perl多重循环生成全排列精简

我想输出ATCG四个字符,组成一个12个字符长度字符串的全排列。共4^12=16777216种排列,

AAAAAAAAAAAA

AAAAAAAAAAAT

AAAAAAAAAAAC

AAAAAAAAAAAG

AAAAAAAAAATA

`````````````````````````

按照正常的想法是通过多重循环来生成全排列,所以我写下了下面这样的代码,但是有个问题,它不支持多扩展性,如果100个全排列,那么得写一百次循环嵌套。

4

所以我求助了perl-china群里的高手,其中一个给了一个结合二进制的巧妙解决方案。

perl -le '{$a{"00"}="A";$a{"01"}="T";$a{"10"}="C";$a{"11"}="G";for(0..100){print join"",map{$a{$_}} unpack("a2"x12,sprintf("%024b\n",$_))}}'

AAAAAAAAAAAA

AAAAAAAAAAAT

AAAAAAAAAAAC

AAAAAAAAAAAG

AAAAAAAAAATA

AAAAAAAAAATT

AAAAAAAAAATC

AAAAAAAAAATG

AAAAAAAAAACA

AAAAAAAAAACT

AAAAAAAAAACC

AAAAAAAAAACG

AAAAAAAAAAGA

AAAAAAAAAAGT

AAAAAAAAAAGC

AAAAAAAAAAGG

AAAAAAAAATAA

AAAAAAAAATAT

这里我简单解释一下这个代码

perl -le '{$a=sprintf("%024b\n",1);print $a}'

000000000000000000000001

这个sprintf是根据024b的格式把我们的十进制数字转为二级制,但是补全为24位。

perl -le '{@a=unpack("a2"x12,sprintf("%024b\n",100));print join":", @a}'

00:00:00:00:00:00:00:00:01:10:01:00

unpack这个函数很简单,就是把二进制的数值拆分成字符串数组,两个数字组成一个字符串。

最后通过map把$a{"00"}="A";$a{"01"}="T";$a{"10"}="C";$a{"11"}="G";对应成hash值并且输出即可!

然后这个大神又提成了一个递归的办法来解决

[perl]

#!/usr/bin/perl

my $arr = [];

$arr->[$_] = 0 for (0..11);
my @b = ("A","C","G","T");

while(1){
print join "", map {$b[$_]} @$arr;
print "\n";
exit unless &count($arr,11);
}

sub count {
my $arr = shift;
my $x = shift;

return 0 if $x < 0;

if ($arr->[$x] < 3){
$arr->[$x]++;
return 1;
}

else{
$arr->[$x] = 0;
return &count($arr,$x - 1);
}
}

[/perl]

还有另外一个大神也提成了一个递归的算法解决,算法之道还是蛮有趣的

2

最后还补充一个也是计算机技巧的解决方案,也是群里的朋友提出来的。

[perl]

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

my @A = qw(A T G C);
my $N = 12;

foreach my $n (0..4**$N){
foreach my $index (0..$N){
print $A[$n%4];
$n = $n >>2;
}
print "\n";
}

[/perl]

这个是位运算,如果C语言基础学的好的同学很快就能看懂的。

如何正确删除双系统的unix系统

肯定有很多人玩过了双系统就烦了,麻烦的是如何删除呢?

重点是需要修复MBR

1.进入win7,下载个软件MbrFix,放在C:\windows\system32文件夹中

2.点击开始》所有程序》附件》命令提示符

3.在命令提示符中输入MbrFix /drive 0 fixmbr /yes

image001

4.此时已经修复了MBR,重启电脑后会发现已经没有了linux启动选项,直接进入windows了

 

如何在window系统下查看当前电脑双系统中另一个系统的磁盘内容。

这个需求很常见,因为双系统linux是可以看window的内容,但是window却无法直接查看linux内容。

下载ext2fsd可以把双系统里面linux分区的ext硬盘里面的文件通过window平台读取出来,软件下载地址如下

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ext2fsd/files/latest/download
