Title: Canonical correlation analysis of genes and metabolites in the primary metabolism of E. coli

Time: Wed, Feb 3, 2010, 10:00am

Place: MPI für Molekulare Pflanzenphysiologie, Room 0.21 in The Box

Canonical correlation analysis (CCA) is a statistical technique for studying associations between two sets of variables measured under the same experimental units. CCA and its variants can be applied to either compare data of the same source (e.g. micro-array data) originating from different species or to integrate different sources of data from the same system (e.g. complementing gene expression data with phenotypic data or integration of data originating from different 'omics' technologies). This seminar focuses on the theoretical principles of CCA, discusses advantages as well as limitations and provides an overview of available packages for the statistical software R.

Furthermore, the application of CCA is illustrated on a joint dataset comprised of the gene expression levels and metabolite concentrations measured as a time-course experiment under 6 environmental conditions in E. coli. Specifically, we identified a number of condition dependent associations between metabolites and transcripts. The results obtained confirm and extend existing models about coregulation between gene expression and metabolites demonstrating the power of integrated systems oriented analysis.
