Change-point estimation: another look at multiple testing problems

 

We consider large scale multiple testing for data that have locally

clustered signals. With this structure, we apply techniques from

change-point analysis and propose a boundary detection algorithm so that

the clustering information can be utilised. Consequently the precision of Read more about Hongyuan Cao, Dept. Seminar

Guillermo Basulto-Elias, Computation of kernel deconvolution density estimators

Friday, August 5, 2016 -
11:00am to 11:45am
Event Type: 

In many areas of application, like medical sciences, variables of interest are not directly observable and may be measured only in the presence of contaminating errors. These cases are often referred as ``measurement error problems.'' Kernel deconvolution density estimation (KDDE) is an approach for handling such measurement errors, which consists of separating out and estimating the density of a target variable from observations blurred by additive errors.  The method involves an adaptation of kernel density estimation using the Fourier inversion theorem.

Resolving Isoform Expression using Digital Gene Expression Data

Monday, April 26, 2010 - 4:15pm
Event Type: 

The advent of ultra-high throughput sequencing technology has made it possible to directly sequence large numbers of mRNA fragments, obtaining a direct measure of mRNA abundance.  Restriction enzyme fragmentation reliably produces a single sequenced fragment per mRNA, providing a direct measure of digital gene expression from tag counts.  However, genes in complex organisms may encode multiple mRNAs, called isoforms which result in different proteins.   Since each restriction site can belong to multiple isoforms, the counts must be partitioned among the is Read more about Resolving Isoform Expression using Digital Gene Expression Data
