  Copy number routines in the \crlmm{} package are available for
  Affymetrix 5.0 and 6.0 platforms, as well as several Illumina
  platforms.  This vignette assumes that the arrays have already been
  successfully preprocessed and genotyped as per the instructions in
  the \verb+AffymetrixPreprocessCN+ and \verb+IlluminaPreprocessCN+
  vignettes for the Affymetrix and Illumina platforms,
  respectively. While this vignette uses Affymetrix 6.0 arrays for
  illustration, the steps at this point are identical for both
  platforms.  See \citep{Scharpf2010} for details regarding the
  methodology implemented in \crlmm{} for copy number analysis.  In
  addition, a compendium describing copy number analysis using the
  \crlmm{} package is available from the author's website:


\section{Set up}

if(getRversion() < "2.13.0"){
	rpath <- getRversion()
} else rpath <- "trunk"
outdir <- paste("/thumper/ctsa/snpmicroarray/rs/ProcessedData/crlmm/", rpath, "/copynumber_vignette", sep="")


We begin by loading the \Robject{cnSet} object created by the
\verb+AffymetrixPreprocessCN+ vignette.

if(!exists("cnSet")) load(file.path(outdir, "cnSet.rda"))

\textbf{Limitations:} While a minimum number of samples is not
required for preprocessing and genotyping, copy number estimation in
the \crlmm{} package currently requires at least 10 samples per batch.
The parameter estimates for copy number and the corresponding
estimates of raw copy number will tend to be more noisy for batches
with small sample sizes (e.g., $<$ 50).  Chemistry plate or scan date
are often useful surrogates for batch.

\section{Quality control}

The signal to noise ratio (SNR) estimated by the CRLMM genotyping
algorithm is an overall measure of the separation of the diallelic
genotype clusters at polymorphic loci and can be a useful measure of
array quality.  Small SNR values can indicate possible problems with
the DNA.  Depending on the size of the dataset and the number of
samples with low SNR, users may wish to rerun the preprocessing and
genotyping steps after excluding samples with low SNR.  The SNR is
stored in the \verb+phenoData+ slot of the \Robject{CNSet} object and
is available after preprocessing and genotyping. SNR values below 5
for Affymetrix or below 25 for Illumina may indicate poor sample
quality.  The following code chunk makes a histogram of the SNR values
for the HapMap samples.

<<snr,fig=TRUE,include=FALSE,width=6, height=4>>=
snr <- cnSet$SNR[]
print(histogram(~snr, panel=function(...){
	panel.abline(v=5, col="grey",lty=2)
		breaks=25,xlim=c(4.5,10), xlab="SNR"))
  \caption{The signal to noise ratio (SNR) for 180 HapMap samples. For
    Affymetrix platforms, SNR values below 5 can indicate possible
    problems with sample quality.  In some circumstances, it may be
    more helpful to exclude samples with poor DNA quality.}

\section{Copy number estimation}

As described in \cite{Scharpf2010}, the CRLMM-CopyNumber algorithm
fits a linear model to the normalized intensities stratified by the
diallic genotype call.  The intercept and slope from the linear model
are both SNP- and batch-specific.  The implementation in the \crlmm{}
package is encapsulated by the function \Rfunction{crlmmCopynumber}
that, using the default settings, can be called by passing a single
object of class \code{CNSet}.  See the appropriate
preprocessing/genotyping vignette for the construction of an object of
class \Rclass{CNSet}.
(cnSet.updated <- crlmmCopynumber(cnSet))

The following steps were performed by the \Rfunction{crlmmCopynumber}
\item sufficient statistics for the genotype clusters for
  each batch
\item unobserved genotype centers imputed
\item posterior summaries of sufficient statistics
\item intercept and slope for linear model
Depending on the value of \verb+ocProbesets()+, these summaries are
computed for subsets of the markers to reduce the required RAM. Note
that the value returned by the \Rfunction{crlmmCopynumber} function in
the above example is \verb+TRUE+.  The reason the function returns
\verb+TRUE+ in the above example is that the elements of the
\verb+batchStatistics+ slot have the class \Rclass{ff_matrix}.  Rather
than keep the statistical summaries in memory, the summaries are
written to files on disk using protocols described in the
\Rpackage{ff} package. Hence, while the \Robject{cnSet} object itself
is unchanged as a result of the \Rfunction{crlmmCopynumber} function,
the data on disk is updated accordingly.  Users that are interested in
accessing these low-level summaries can refer to the
\verb+Infrastructure+ vignette.  Computation of the raw copy number
estimates for each allele is described in the following section.

For users that are interested in the analysis of a specific chromosome
(subset of markers) or a s

pointers to files on disk, are stored in the \verb+batchStatistics+
slot of the class \Rclass{CNSet}.  Using the default settings for the
\Rfunction{crlmmCopynumber} function, only an object of class
\Rclass{CNSet} is required.  %(See \verb+AffyPreprocessCN+ or
%\verb+IlluminaPreprocessCN+ vignettes for details.)

Note that depends on whether the elements of the \verb+batchStatistics+
slot are \Robject{ff} objects or ordinary matrices.  In this example,
the elements of \verb+batchStatistics+ have the class

nms <- ls(batchStatistics(cnSet))
cls <- rep(NA, length(nms))
for(i in seq_along(nms)) cls[i] <- class(batchStatistics(cnSet)[[nms[i]]])[1]
all(cls == "ff_matrix")

The batch-specific statistical summaries computed by
\Robject{crlmmCopynumber} are written to files on disk using protocols
described in the \R{} package \Rpackage{ff}. The value returned by
\Rfunction{crlmmCopynumber} is \verb+TRUE+, indicating that the files
on disk have been successfully updated.  Note that while the
\Robject{cnSet} object is unchanged, the values on disk are different.

\noindent On the other hand, subsetting the \Robject{cnSet} with the
`[' method coerces all of the elements to class \Rclass{matrix}. The
batch-specific summaries are now ordinary matrices stored in RAM. The
object returned by \Robject{crlmmCopynumber} is an object of class
\Rclass{CNSet} with the matrices in the \verb+batchStatistics+ slot

chr1.index <- which(chromosome(cnSet) == 1)

cnSet2 <- cnSet[chr1.index, ]

for(i in seq_along(nms)) cls[i] <- class(batchStatistics(cnSet2)[[nms[i]]])[1]
all(cls == "matrix")

cnSet3 <- crlmmCopynumber(cnSet2)

<<clean, echo=FALSE, results=hide>>=
rm(cnSet2); gc()

\subsection{Raw copy number}

Several functions are available that will compute relatively quickly
the allele-specific, \emph{raw} copy number estimates. At allele $k$,
marker $i$, sample $j$, and batch $p$, the estimate of allele-specific
copy number is computed by subtracting the estimated background from
the normalized intensity and scaling by the slope coefficient. More formally,
\newcommand{\A}{A} \newcommand{\B}{B}
{\hat c}_{k,ijp} &=& \mbox{max}\left\{\frac{1}{{\hat
    \phi}_{k,ip}}\left(I_{k,ijp}-{\hat \nu}_{k,ip}\right), ~0\right\}
\mbox{~for~} k \in \{\A, \B\}.
\noindent See \cite{Scharpf2010} for details.

The function \Rfunction{totalCopynumber} translates the normalized
intensities to an estimate of raw copy number by adding the
allele-specific summaries in Equation \eqref{eq:cnK}. For large
datasets, the calculation will not be instantaneous as the I/O can be
substantial.  Users should specify either a subset of the markers or a
subset of the samples to avoid using all of the available RAM.  For
example, in the following code chunk we compute the total copy number
at all markers for the first 2 samples, and the total copy number for
chromosome 20 for the first 50 samples.

tmp <- totalCopynumber(cnSet, i=1:nrow(cnSet), j=1:2)
tmp2 <- totalCopynumber(cnSet, i=which(chromosome(cnSet) == 20), j=1:50)

Alternatively, the functions \Rfunction{CA} and \Rfunction{CB} compute
the allele-specific copy number.  For instance, the following code
chunk computes the allele-specific summaries at all polymorphic loci.

snp.index <- which(isSnp(cnSet) & !is.na(chromosome(cnSet)))
ca <- CA(cnSet, i=snp.index, j=1:5)
cb <- CB(cnSet, i=snp.index, j=1:5)

\noindent Note the equivalence of the following calculations.

ct <- ca+cb
ct2 <- totalCopynumber(cnSet, i=snp.index, j=1:5)
stopifnot(all.equal(ct, ct2))

At nonpolymorphic loci, \Rfunction{CA} function returns the total copy
number and, by construction, the \Rfunction{CB} function returns 0.

marker.index <- which(!isSnp(cnSet))
ct <- CA(cnSet, i=marker.index, j=1:5)
## all zeros
stopifnot(all(CB(cnSet, i=marker.index, j=1:5) == 0))
ct2 <- totalCopynumber(cnSet, i=marker.index, j=1:5)
stopifnot(all.equal(ct, ct2))

In the following code chunk, we extract estimates of the total copy
number at nonpolymorphic markers on chromosome X.

npx.index <- which(chromosome(cnSet)==23 & !isSnp(cnSet))
M <- sample(which(cnSet$gender[]==1), 5)
F <- sample(which(cnSet$gender[]==2), 5)
cn.M <- CA(cnSet, i=npx.index, j=M)
cn.F <- CA(cnSet, i=npx.index, j=F)

\noindent Again, the function \Rfunction{totalCopynumber} is

cnX <- cbind(cn.M, cn.F)
cnX2 <- totalCopynumber(cnSet, i=npx.index, j=c(M, F))
stopifnot(all.equal(cnX, cnX2))

<<nonpolymorphicX,fig=TRUE,include=FALSE, echo=FALSE, eval=FALSE>>=
df <- data.frame(cn=as.numeric(cnX), id=factor(rep(sampleNames(cnSet)[c(M,F)], each=nrow(cnX)), levels=sampleNames(cnSet)[c(M,F)], ordered=T))
cols <- brewer.pal(8, "Accent")[c(1, 5)]
print(bwplot(cn~id,df, panel=function(x,y,...){
	panel.bwplot(x,y, ...)

       fill=cols[cnSet$gender[c(M,F)]], key=mykey))

cols <- brewer.pal(8, "Accent")[c(1, 5)]
X.markers <- which(isSnp(cnSet) & chromosome(cnSet) == 23)

\subsection{A container for raw copy number}

A useful container for storing the \crlmm{} genotypes, genotype
confidence scores, and the total copy number at each marker is the
\Rclass{oligoSnpSet} class.  Coercion of a \Rclass{CNSet} object to a
\Rfunction{oligoSnpSet} object can be acheived by using the method
\Rfunction{as} (as illustrated below). Users should note that if the
\verb+assayData+ elements in the \Rclass{CNSet} instance are
\Rpackage{ff} objects, the \verb+assayData+ elements of the
instantiated \Rclass{oligoSnpSet} will also be \Rpackage{ff} object (a
new \verb+total_cn*.ff+ file will be created in the \verb+ldPath()+
directory). The advantage of this approach is that the raw copy number
estimates can be computed for all markers and all samples
simultaneously without excessive RAM.  The disadvantage is that such a
step creates additional I/O for reading and writing the raw copy
number estimates from disk.  For very large data sets (1000+ samples),
the time required for I/O may outweigh the benefits.  The alternative
is to perform downstream processing (such as smoothing) on the total
copy number for subsets of markers and/or samples.  As indicated
previously, the subset `[' method applied to an object of class
\Robject{CNSet} will return an object of the same class with simple
matrices instead of \Rpackage{ff} objects.  Therefore, one can
instantiate a \Rpackage{oligoSnpSet} object from a \Robject{CNSet}
object without the I/O overhead for storing the total copy number
estimates by first subsetting the \Rclass{CNSet} object.  One could
then smooth the raw copy number estimates and store a summary copy
number for the interval, thereby substantially reducing the
dimensionality of the copy number estimates.  Examples of smoothing
applications such as circular binary segmentation implemented in the
\Rpackage{DNAcopy} package or a hidden Markov model implemented in the
\Rpackage{VanillaICE} package are provided in the \verb+SmoothingCN+

oligoSet <- as(cnSet3, "oligoSnpSet")

\noindent Note that the raw copy number estimates stored in the
\Robject{oligoSnpSet} object can be retrieved by the
\Rfunction{copyNumber} accessor and is equivalanet to that returned by
the \Rfunction{totalCopynumber} function defined over the same row and
column indices.

total.cn3 <- totalCopynumber(cnSet3, i=1:nrow(cnSet3), j=1:ncol(cnSet3))
all.equal(copyNumber(oligoSet), total.cn3)
