Abstract

Tiling arrays are a microarray technology currently being used for a variety of genomic and epigenomic applications, such as the mapping of transcription, DNA methylation, and histone modifications. Tiling arrays provide high-density coverage of a genome, or a genomic region, through the systematic and sequential placement of probes without regard to genome annotation. In this paper we compare the Affymetrix tiling array to the Affymetrix GeneChip® 3’ expression array and propose methods that address statistical and bioinformatic issues that accompany gene expression data that are generated from Affymetrix tiling arrays. Real data from the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana motivate this work and application.

STATISTICAL METHODS FOR AFFYMETRIX TILING ARRAY DATA

Tiling arrays are a microarray technology currently being used for a variety of genomic and epigenomic applications, such as the mapping of transcription, DNA methylation, and histone modifications. Tiling arrays provide high-density coverage of a genome, or a genomic region, through the systematic and sequential placement of probes without regard to genome annotation. In this paper we compare the Affymetrix tiling array to the Affymetrix GeneChip® 3’ expression array and propose methods that address statistical and bioinformatic issues that accompany gene expression data that are generated from Affymetrix tiling arrays. Real data from the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana motivate this work and application.
