`assign.mcmc.Rd`

The assign.mcmc function uses a Bayesian sparse factor analysis model to estimate the adaptive baseline/background, adaptive pathway signature, and pathway activation status of individual test (disease) samples.

assign.mcmc(Y, Bg, X, Delta_prior_p, iter = 2000, adaptive_B = TRUE, adaptive_S = FALSE, mixture_beta = TRUE, sigma_sZero = 0.01, sigma_sNonZero = 1, p_beta = 0.01, sigma_bZero = 0.01, sigma_bNonZero = 1, alpha_tau = 1, beta_tau = 0.01, Bg_zeroPrior = TRUE, S_zeroPrior = FALSE, ECM = FALSE, progress_bar = TRUE)

Y | The G x J matrix of genomic measures (i.g., gene expression) of test samples. Y is the testData_sub variable returned from the data.process function. Genes/probes present in at least one pathway signature are retained. |
---|---|

Bg | The G x 1 vector of genomic measures of the baseline/background (B). Bg is the B_vector variable returned from the data.process function. Bg is the starting value of baseline/background level in the MCMC chain. |

X | The G x K matrix of genomic measures of the signature. X is the S_matrix variable returned from the data.process function. X is the starting value of pathway signatures in the MCMC chain. |

Delta_prior_p | The G x K matrix of prior probability of a gene being "significant" in its associated pathway. Delta_prior_p is the Pi_matrix variable returned from the data.process function. |

iter | The number of iterations in the MCMC. The default is 2000. |

adaptive_B | Logicals. If TRUE, the model adapts the baseline/background (B) of genomic measures for the test samples. The default is TRUE. |

adaptive_S | Logicals. If TRUE, the model adapts the signatures (S) of genomic measures for the test samples. The default is FALSE. |

mixture_beta | Logicals. If TRUE, elements of the pathway activation matrix are modeled by a spike-and-slab mixture distribution. The default is TRUE. |

sigma_sZero | Each element of the signature matrix (S) is modeled by a spike-and-slab mixture distribution. Sigma_sZero is the variance of the spike normal distribution. The default is 0.01. |

sigma_sNonZero | Each element of the signature matrix (S) is modeled by a spike-and-slab mixture distribution. Sigma_sNonZero is the variance of the slab normal distribution. The default is 1. |

p_beta | p_beta is the prior probability of a pathway being activated in individual test samples. The default is 0.01. |

sigma_bZero | Each element of the pathway activation matrix (A) is modeled by a spike-and-slab mixture distribution. sigma_bZero is the variance of the spike normal distribution. The default is 0.01. |

sigma_bNonZero | Each element of the pathway activation matrix (A) is modeled by a spike-and-slab mixture distribution. sigma_bNonZero is the variance of the slab normal distribution. The default is 1. |

alpha_tau | The shape parameter of the precision (inverse of the variance) of a gene. The default is 1. |

beta_tau | The rate parameter of the precision (inverse of the variance) of a gene. The default is 0.01. |

Bg_zeroPrior | Logicals. If TRUE, the prior distribution of baseline/background level follows a normal distribution with mean zero. The default is TRUE. |

S_zeroPrior | Logicals. If TRUE, the prior distribution of signature follows a normal distribution with mean zero. The default is TRUE. |

ECM | Logicals. If TRUE, ECM algorithm, rather than Gibbs sampling, is applied to approximate the model parameters. The default is FALSE. |

progress_bar | Display a progress bar for MCMC. Default is TRUE. |

The iter x G x K array of signature estimated in every iteration of MCMC.

The iter x G x K array of binary indicator of a gene being significant estimated in every iteration of MCMC.

The assign.mcmc function can be set as following major modes. The combination of logical values of adaptive_B, adaptive_S and mixture_beta can form different modes.

Mode A: adaptive_B = FALSE, adaptive_S = FALSE, mixture_beta = FALSE. This is a regression mode without adaptation of baseline/background, signature, and no shrinkage of the pathway activation level.

Mode B: adaptive_B = TRUE, adaptive_S = FALSE, mixture_beta = FALSE. This is a regression mode with adaptation of baseline/background, but without signature, and with no shrinkage of the pathway activation level.

Mode C: adaptive_B = TRUE, adaptive_S = FALSE, mixture_beta = TRUE. This is a regression mode with adaptation of baseline/background, but without signature, and with shrinkage of the pathway activation level when it is not significantly activated.

Mode D: adaptive_B = TRUE, adaptive_S = TRUE, mixture_beta = TRUE. This is a Bayesian factor analysis mode with adaptation of baseline/background, adaptation signature, and with shrinkage of the pathway activation level.
