Nonparametric modeling of RNA-seq

Studies of expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs) have become an
important tool for  understanding the genetic mechanisms underlying natural
variation in gene expression which is a central goal of both medical and
evolutionary genetics.  Although all eQTL studies so far have measured mRNA
levels using microarrays, recent advances in RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) enable
the analysis of transcript variation at unprecedented resolution.   The
reads produced by RNA-Seq are first mapped to the genome and/or to the
reference transcripts. Then, the output of RNA-Seq can be summarized by a
sequence of 'counts'. That is, for each position in the genome or on a
putative transcript, it gives a count standing for the number of reads whose
mapping starts at that position. Quantitative inference of RNA-Seq data,
such as calculating gene expression levels and isoform expression levels, is
based on these counts. To utilize the data efficiently, it is crucial to
have an appropriate statistical model for these counts. In this talk, we
present some nonparametric models in analyzing the RNA-seq data of nine cell
lines. We will also discuss its potential utility in eQTL mapping studies.
