Abstract

In clinical cancer research, high throughput genomic technologies are increasingly used to identify copy number aberrations. However, the admixture of tumor and stromal cells and the inherent karyotypic heterogeneity of most of the solid tumor samples make this task highly challenging. Here, we propose a robust two-step strategy to detect copy number aberrations in such a context. A spatial mixture model is first used to fit the preprocessed data. Then, a calling algorithm is applied to classify the genomic segments in three biologically meaningful states (copy loss, copy gain and modal copy). The results of a simulation study show the good properties of the proposed procedure with complex patterns of genomic aberrations. The interest of the proposed procedure in clinical cancer research is then illustrated by the analysis of real lung adenocarcinoma samples. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
