Peak Detection in Statistical Genetics
High throughput methods in genetics/molecular biology produce profiles indexed by position in a genome that are punctuated by signals in the form of “peaks” of known or unknown shape. Statistical problems involve detection of peaks and estimation of their location and height, while accounting appropriately for issues of multiple comparisons. In this talk I will survey a number of these problems and discuss possible solutions.
This is joint research with Nancy Zhang, Benjamin Yakir, and Jose´e Dupuis.
