Hope you good. written, modified 8 months ago Here is the pData for your dataset: Hello Kevin. I performed differential gene expression analysis using EgdeR on RNAseq data and using the DE i g... Hello, I need to perform survival analysis to find significant associations of specific pathway ... Hello every body, I am trying to subset data in an gset, but I am running into issue. Therefore, to facilitate performance comparisons and validations of survival biomarkers for cancer outcomes, we developed SurvExpress, a cancer-wide gene expression database with clinical outcomes and a web-based tool that provides survival analysis and risk assessment of cancer datasets. My raw code was actually correct - the error (the lack of an extra parenthesis, (), was introduced in the visual representation of my code by the Biostars rendering system. Thank you for noticing that. Share . Hi Kevin, I will like to perform a multivariate analysis with my genes and I am thinking of using of high expression as z> 0 and low expression as z<= 0 in order to omit the mid expression bit. Next, we join the two data.frame by sampleID and keep necessary columns. Is it possible to test the high and low expression of the genes with each of the phenotype data? The Cox regression function that is used in this tutorial requires data to be: You will have to encode your variable as 0 and 1. I got it! What about using the median as the cut-off point? Can I insert P-value resulted from Cox regression in the K-M plot picture instead K-M plot P-value? At first, I used that model with validation patient set to see if the ROC was still high. So, for 15. However, I read that this is not correct, as I am redoing the coefficients, not validating them. Patients in validation set were categorized into high vs. low SLC2A3 expression according â¦ Each answer is based on the respective experience of the individual. I am not familiar with pairwise_survdiff() but it looks like a useful function. To do a validation, I found this package that allows you to do internal and external validation. Sorry, this is not how Biostars functions. No, the package just accepts whatever data that you use. If so, is this different from passing the phenotype data as an explicit variable(s) and performing a multivariate analysis on each gene in conjunction with the phenotype data? and then I can assume if a statistically significant RFS survival appears, that any gene related is implicated in survival mechanisms related to therapy ? Yes, and you can include all genes in the same model, or test each gene independently, i.e., in separate models. To study the effect of KRAS gene expression on prognosis of LUAD patients, we show two approaches: We will use package survival and survminer to create models and plot survival curves, respectively. after the RegParallel command. . Is survplotSARCturquoisedata the exact same as coxSARCdata? Thank you for you reply. The selection of absolute Z=1 was just chosen as a very relaxed threshold for highly / lowly expressed. I want to perform an ANOVA test (I think) to show the relation between the high and low expression of my genes (18 in all) and the phenotype data separately, that is age, gender, UICC and grading (2 or 3). If so, how exactly---is it using Z-score +/- 1? Take a look at the sub() and gsub() functions. matrix correct ? Ok. In this study, we collected the gene expression profiles and clinical information of 1100 DLBCL patients from seven independent cohorts from the TCGA and GEO databases. My question now is: Hey, what information do you have, exactly? DESeq2 derives p-values, generally, as follows: One can, of course, produce normalised, transformed counts, and perform their own analyses on these. base on your perfect tutorial I ran RegParallel() for getting survival analysis. When we reduced survival p -value cutoff to 0.01, this gene number goes down to 518. Results To determine genes that differentially expressed between 44 short-term survivors (<2 years) and 48 long-term survivors (â¥2 years), we searched LGGs TCGA RNA-seq dataset and identified 106 â¦ You can do whatever approach seems valid to you. The values of specificity and sensitivity of the 19-genes was calculated based on the analysis of gene expression from this study as compared to the selected genes from other publications [14, 15]. If you are aiming to use the normalised, un-transformed counts, then you could use the negative binomial regression via glm.nb() - this may be too advanced, though. I have a question about using Scale() for transforming expression data to Z scores. In order to compare the gene expression between two conditions, we must therefore calculate the fraction of the reads assigned to each gene relative to the total number of reads and with respect to the entire RNA repertoire which may vary drastically from sample to sample. I am curious to ask can we use Beta values for methylation from each probe instead of the read-count from gene expression. Really Thanks for your answer. Kaplan-Meier analysis using gene expression profiles demonstrated a significantly worse overall survival for high-risk patients compared to low-risk patients (Figure 2 B), and using the 64-gene signature, we predicted the actual overall survival with greater than 85% accuracy. How can I do it? Am I correct in thinking your code is performing a univariate analysis on each gene? So, for using RNA-seq, Should I modify your survival analysis code? survival analysis based on gene expression for one gene only Hi, I have the expression of one gene for 273 glioma patients, as well as their clinical data. Harr B, Schlotterer C. Comparison of algorithms for the analysis of Affymetrix microarray data as evaluated by co-expression of genes in known operons. for users to incorporate multiple datasets or data types, integrate the selected data with I am actually only relatively recently working in internal and external calibration, so, I do not feel it is my place to provide advice right now. I use TPM(Transaction per million) method for normalizing my RNA-Seq data set. (B) Heatmap for a single module, showing coherent expression of â¦ Yes, you can perform survival analysis using any metric. Here we will use RegParallel to fit the Cox model independently for each gene. Seems okay to me. Yes, well, in the example above (my example), we could have done it better by dividing the expression range into tertiles to ensure that there would be at least 1 sample per group. I was wondering regarding your suggestion to arrange the tests by log rank p value. Can you tell me why please? x<-exprs(gset[[1]]), index1: 54001; index2: 54613 without clinical information this is not possible to do so isn;t it? I have been considering using the median as the cut off point as most studies have done but does that mean I have to find the median for all the genes to generate the survival curves? Am wondering if this will this affect my COX analysis? Again, please read the manual and vignette. For my purposes do you think voom normalization is appropriate? It should work based on how you have set it up, though. 3- phenotype of my data set has fours fields: 'OS status','OS days','RFS status','RFS days'. I do not know how should I proceed. So in the RegParallel function, is gene expression being dichotomized? The Kaplan-Meier plot shows what percent of patients are alive at a time point. Thus, it is important to identify prognostic markers for disease progression and resistance to treatments, and tâ¦ I spent some time to figure out how to do this analysis before coming across your post. Really appreciate it. I can see the model is looping to test each variable separately, and that the variables are defined as each gene in the below line: However I am struggling the understand, whether/where the phenotype data (age, ER status, grade etc) is being used by the model. I've adapted your code to my HTA 2.0 microarray studio. But I am not very sure how to integrate these two results as methylation can regulate the expression of genes that are in trans. Hi Kevin. To address this issue, we developed an R package UCSCXenaTools for enabling data retrieval, analysis integration and reproducible research for omics data from the UCSC Xena platform1. If so, how exactly---is it using Z-score +/- 1? I have another questions about your SA tutorial due to using RNA-seq expression data: 1-Generally, the measure of expression in RNA-seq is count and different from measure of expression in Microarray Technology. In that case, I would literally just write out the models individually. I want to know... Hello Biostars No, it is just in the DESeq2 protocol (and EdgeR). Apologies if this is very simple/obvious, I am coming from a pure biology background with not much statistical training. Gene Expression. It is just in this tutorial that I dichotomise the gene expression values before using the RegfParallel package. Can you please help me with a tutorial on how to conduct a pairwise survival plot possibly one that can pair say high level of TPL2 and VEGFA and low level of IGFBP3? Suppose that we have a bunch of gene and after clustering we have n cluster. The Rcpp issue may relate to a rights issue, as Rcpp requires installation of system files. One typo was found: That's a change introduced in R 4.0.0. Tried again this morning and got the same NA problem. I appreciate if you share your comment with me. Hi. • Nothing surprises me anymore in bioinformatics, though. Survival analysis lets you analyze the rates of occurrence of events over time, without assuming the rates are constant. So, based on RegParallel(), can I compute 'res' using my phenotype fields? Hey Sian, yes, it performs a univariate test on each gene / variable that is passed to the variables parameter. Thank you for this tutorial. using RNA-seq, Should I modify your survival analysis code? factor with three levels: In theory this was supposed to produce three curves. Hi Kevin, do you think this method will work in this case as well. Is there a parsimonious method to reduce the number of genes without having an effect on the final ROC? Validation set analysis. From my understanding, the log rank test is computed comparing survival time between groups. Koletsi D, Pandis N. Survival analysis, part 3: Cox regression. 2. Here for "MMP10", the p-value equals 0.00047 in your example. The tutorial is just to foment ideas, though. My head has been splitting on all the differing views I get. I solved my problem but in the below code: Okay, please spend some more time to debug the error on your own. Definitions. As of now i used mostly rlog and vst value for clustering and pca etc . And could you please help me with a tutorial on how to perform a box plot analysis with my data? In my case, the p-value resulted from the Cox regression is 0.04 but the p-value resulted ggsurvplot for the K-M plot is about 0.1. based on Cox's p-value my study is significant but based on the K-M plot p-value isn't(greater than 0.05). Facebook. We can clearly see that patients in ‘KRAS_Low’ group have better survival than patients in ‘KRAS_High’ group because the survival probability of ‘KRAS_High’ group is always lower than ‘KRAS_Low’ group over time (the unit is ‘day’ here). Flexible Models for Common Study Designs. 2006;34:e8 16. The 'final' list of genes would be those whose coefficients are not shrunk (reduced) to 0. In contrast, survival analysis of the gene expression data indicated 1,954 genes that may influence PDAC patient survival with p-value â¤ 0.05 . So I tried this code: hoping that the data will be converted from character to factor to numeric. Thanks for mentioning it here. Yes, you can add any p-value to the K-M plot - all that you need to do is: However, you need to be sure that this is the correct thing to do. The code and approaches that I share here are those I am using to analyze TCGA methylation data. I... Finding the best combination of covarites in a multivariate linear regression • https://github.com/kassambara/survminer/issues/262#issuecomment-342234554, https://rpkgs.datanovia.com/survminer/reference/arrange_ggsurvplots.html, http://www.sthda.com/english/forum/topic-19+how-to-change-text-font-family-in-ggsurvplot.php, https://www.rdocumentation.org/packages/survival/versions/3.2-3/topics/Surv, http://r-addict.com/2016/11/21/Optimal-Cutpoint-maxstat.html, https://www.mathsisfun.com/data/standard-normal-distribution.html, https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/glmnet/vignettes/Coxnet.pdf, Survival analysis of TCGA patients integrating gene expression (RNASeq) data, https://web.stanford.edu/~hastie/glmnet/glmnet_alpha.html#cox, https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/hdnom/vignettes/hdnom.html#2_build_survival_models, Multivariate logistic regression for gene expression, Extracting information of interest from R, Survival analysis: data clinical and pathways. "No, it is just in the DESeq2 protocol (and EdgeR). See text for details. I downloaded TCGA RNAseq and miRNAseq data and used voom transformation as follows: Then I combined these normalized data with clinical parameters such as vital_status and days_to_death to perform survival analysis. The most commonly diagnosed cancers in men and women are prostate cancer and breast cancer, respectively (1). Sorry am quite new to R. Please what do you mean when by properly encoding my DFS variables. Hi Dr. Blighe, My survplotdata is as below: I used 0 as cut-offs for high and low expression. patients have not received any type of therapy-thus, from my goal and Hey I tried that as well after seeing on a platform like this but I got the same response. I need your comment for 2 below questions: 1- I use 'coxph' as FUNtype for the regression model. But now, one more question. 2) I saw you have performed cox regression on relapse-free survival- checked also from the supplementary material, that some of the patients have not received any type of therapy-thus, from my goal and perspective, I can still perform survival using RFS, even to test if these genes exhibit a correlation with survival associated with therapy, even if it is not overall survival ? can you guide me by tutorial such as the above tutorial? 3) Even if i have specific gene targets, I can still perform cox regression to investigate if these genes illustrate a significant outcome associated with survival ? Does this look sound? So, for using that I transformed it to Log2 space. Citation: Aguirre-Gamboa R, Gomez-Rueda H, Martínez-Ledesma E, Martínez-Torteya A, Chacolla-Huaringa R, Rodriguez-Barrientos A, et al. shows that no samples meet the -1 zscore low expression cutoff (as far as I can see). Follicular lymphoma (FL) is the second most common lymphoma in Western countries. 1- I need to show K-M plots for 7 genes in one picture. it? I was worried that it might not work since the gene expression levels have been standardized. written, modified 22 months ago basically, why do we need transforming to z scores while our original data(downloaded from GEO) is normal? â¦ Now that I have the genes identified, I want to validate them with a validation set samples. Each gene will replace the [*] symbol as the package tests each gene in an independent model. Generally, survival analysis lets you model the time until an event occurs, 1 or compare the time-to-event between different groups, or how time-to-event correlates with quantitative variables.. I also just re-ran my own code and observe the same 'phenomenon'. Is it referenced by assigning the data as the full 'coxdata' dataframe, as below? But about my first question, I would like to explain more about my data set. Hey kelvin, this is a great tutorial. I see you have your expression Ask 10 people and you'll get 10 different answers, though. and you can see P-value in the plot equals 0.25: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8rn89ithvqfyfqk/Rplot_K-M_MEturquoise_OS_981018.bmp?dl=0, I appreciate it if you share your comment with me. Dear Dr. Blighe, I have 2 more questions: 1- I need to show K-M plots for 7 genes in one picture. I appreciate if you share your solution with me. Running code as is only gives me mid and high curves for both genes. 3- why you didn't use coxph() for RNA-seq expression data set in RegParallel vignett? Thanks for your answer. 3- phenotype of my data set has fours fields: 'OS status','OS For box-and-whiskers plots, I am not sure... how about this? I would like to ask a question just to clarify my understanding. • Now we download the clinical dataset of the TCGA LUAD cohort and load it into R. To download gene expression data, first we need to select the right dataset. Theprodlim package implements a fast algorithm and some features not included insurvival. Could you help me with a tutorial on how to do this please? If using RegParallel, the idea is that you have hundreds or thousands or millions of genes to test. Nucleic Acids Res. Median can be used, too, and is better to use the median for non-parametric variables. I think that it is okay to leave the values as 0 to 1. UCSCXenaTools: Retrieve Gene Expression and Clinical Information from UCSC Xena for Survival Analysis, https://github.com/ropensci/software-review/issues/315, Click here if you're looking to post or find an R/data-science job, Click here to close (This popup will not appear again), for operating datasets, we use functions whose names start with, for operating subset of a dataset, we use functions whose names start with, use Cox model to determine the effect when, use Kaplan-Meier curve and log-rank test to observe the difference in different of. Overall survival analysis was conducted using only patients with survival data and gene expression data from RNA-seq. We describe an R Shiny web application, shinyGEO, that can download gene expression data sets directly from the Gene Expression Omnibus, and perform differential expression and survival analysis across selected genes aâ¦ This is annotation specific to my package, RegParallel. Despite progress in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), 5âyear survival rates remain low.Thus, a more comprehensive approach to explore the mechanism of HCC is needed to provide new leads for targeted therapy. logically, doing multivariate Cox Regression for lots of genes(more than 150 genes) is true? 2- honestly, I cant understand '~ [*]' in formula = 'Surv(Time.RFS, Distant.RFS) ~ [*]'. Methods In the current study, we performed an integrated analysis of gene expression data and genome-wide methylation data to determine novel prognostic genes and methylation sites in LGGs. https://www.rdocumentation.org/packages/survival/versions/3.2-3/topics/Surv. Hello Dr. Kevin. Agreement I expect you to read my comments and to then spend some time researching the answers to any further questions that you have. I will really appreciate if u can share your thoughts about it. • For example, on the Z-scale, we know that +3 equates to 3 standard deviations above the mean expression value in the dataset. 3) Even if i have specific gene targets, I can still perform cox If you encode the gene's expression as a factor / categorical variable, then the survival function will plot a curve for each level. • n is number of cluster. If you want to run a multivariate Cox model with that many variables, then consider using the Lasso Cox model: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/glmnet/vignettes/Coxnet.pdf. You need to properly encode your DFS variables. I would indeed expect different p-values here because the parameters that are passed to Surv() are interpreted differently based on how many are passed. Here we focus on ‘Primary Tumor’ for simplicity. For this example, we will load GEO breast cancer gene expression data with recurrence free survival (RFS) from Gene Expression Profiling in Breast Cancer: Understanding the Molecular Basis of Histologic Grade To Improve Prognosis. Alternatively, the latest development version can be downloaded from GitHub: Before actually pulling data, understanding how UCSCXenaTools works (see Figure 1) will help users locate the most important function to use. In that case, you can use coxph(). Ok so I tried executing a code like this: I realised that the curves generated were in line with what I was expecting ie high VEGFA corresponded with low survival and also it split my sample size into two for high risk and low risk. But I realised it only shows the relation between the genes as a whole (but not dichotomized into high and low expression) and each of the phenotype data. If yes, these values are continuous and range from 0 to 1, would it be recommended to convert these also to Z score. Then we are talking about a binary logistic regression model: Yes please. I am also trying to calculate correlations between protein-coding-gene vs miRNA pairs to find associations. how can we design Surv plot for each cluster separately? TPM is not too bad if you are testing each gene independently, i.e., univariate (in my tutorial, above, each gene is tested independently as part of a univariate Cox model); Ok, Thanks for your comment. therapy, even if it is not overall survival ? Aiming for something like >1.96 and < -1.96 would be better, as |Z|=1.06 is equivalent of p=0.05. Is there still a way to run survival analysis ? No please. This is the same as any standard differential expression program. So I tried to perfom this analysis with my data: #loading data from GEO ie low vs mid, mid vs high etc. FL is characterized by being incurable, usually having an indolent clinical course with frequent relapses, and an eventual patient’s death or transformation to Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma. Please ignore the comma at the end of the code. ), fit negative binomial regression model independently for each gene's normalised counts, extract p-value from the model coefficient via the Wald test applied Standardization step? We can find that patients with higher KRAS gene expression have higher risk (34% increase per KRAS gene expression unit increase), and the effect of KRAS gene expression is statistically significant (p<0.05). KRAS is a known driver gene in LUAD. How calculate FDA in COX-PH regression!!!? fields in RegParallel()? The UCSCXenaTools R package: a toolkit for accessing genomics data from UCSC Xena platform, from cancer multi-omics to single-cell RNA-seq. (B and C) were generated using the acute lymphoblastic leukemia dataset, (Chiaretti et al., 2004) and the ALL R package. Bioinformatics is like the Wild Wild West. With the data prepared, we can now apply a Cox survival model independently for each gene (probe) in the dataset against RFS. based on RegParallel(), our Survival Analysis is multivariate or univariate? Hello again, trust that you are well. I appreciate if you guide me and share your comment for solving that Error with me. you mean for that reason they don't have similar P-value. if no, which function is your suggestion? Edit: Tom's opening paragraph makes no sense to me, as, by splitting the gene expression by the median, it's in no way implying that "50% of patients will survive in your analysis". in the K-M plot. We can find that patients with higher KRAS gene expression have higher risk (34% increase per KRAS gene expression unit increase), and the effect of KRAS gene expression is statistically significant (p<0.05). I would like to know if all 34 are essential or if I can reduce that number without affecting the AUC. That is the best form of learning. SLC2A3 was significantly associated with both OS (P = 0.005) and DFS (P = 0.024).There was associations between the expression of SLC2A1 with worse DFS (P = 0.015), but SLC2A6 was not associated with worse OS (P = 0.940).The expression of SLC2A7 was not provided. I see, but this is not an issue with my tutorial. Everybody has an opinion on everything. written, Gene Expression Profiling in Breast Cancer: Understanding the Molecular Basis of Histologic Grade To Improve Prognosis, R survival analysis : surv_pvalue vs fit.coxph for log-rank-test pvalue. Great tutorial, thanks so much for taking the time to write and share it. but as I wrote in the last line of summary(fit_SARC_turquoise) result you can find Score (log rank) test in which the p-value equals 0.04 by 1 df. In R scripts of GEO2R which line is responsible for background correction and replacing replicated probes with the mean? In order to address that, checking just the overlap would not work. 2- As you know in literature, we have multivariate Cox regression and univariate Cox regression. Variables is a vector of gene names that you want to test. My boss told me I might be able to reduce the number of genes using a multivariable model. >0 and <=0 is, essentially, a binary classification. I deeply appreciate if you share your comment with me. Then we can plot the survival curves for each group. Thank you very much for these tutorials. Hey, I think that it means that you have a variable that has no values, i.e., a variable that has only NA or infinite values, Have you screened your input data to ensure that all variables are complete? I think that both methods are compatible with each other. The UCSC Xena platform provides an unprecedented resource for public omics data from big projects like The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), however, it is hard Yes, coxph is the correct function. No big issue though. if yes, how can I use these fields in RegParallel()? It would be really helpful If you can clarify me. To study the effect of KRAS gene expression on prognosis of LUAD patients, we show two approaches: use Cox model to determine the effect when KRAS gene expression increases; use Kaplan-Meier curve and log-rank test to observe the difference in different ofKRAS gene expression status, i.e. checked also from the supplementary material, that some of the perspective, I can still perform survival using RFS, even to test if Am â¦ Vasselli JR, Shih JH, Iyengar SR, Maranchie J, Riss J, Worrell R, Torres-Cabala C, Tabios R, Mariotti A, Stearman R, Merino M, Walther MM, Simon R, Klausner RD, Linehan WM (2003) Predicting survival in patients with metastatic kidney cancer by gene-expression profiling in the primary tumor. The idea of this tutorial is to perform Cox PH independently for each gene, i.e., it is univariate, and this can help to reduce a large number of variables, in your case, 350 to 35. This is because with the previous cut off points 1.0 and -1.0, most of the patients fell into the mid expression group which left very few patients with the high and low expression of genes? Hi Kevin. But I got this response instead: Are there only 9 genes in your dataset? I also tried to execute the code above and I got this instead: I see.. trying to adapt this tutorial to your own data will prove difficult for people who are new to R.I recommend that you first go through the entire tutorial as I have presented (above) - in this way, you will be better equipped to later adapt the code to your own data. the expression of all other genes within the sample. I have a question. and Privacy And I've gone from having 350 candidate genes to 35 genes that influence patient survival. I appreciate it if you guide me that how can I do them via my code. So, you need to perform the dichotomisation prior to running RegParallel. I'm recycling this code for 30 separate tumors as a general approach, thus I don't have a predetermined design. Thank you for your reply. In a normal distribution that is not transformed to Z-scale, a value of 10, 20, 30, et cetera may mean nothing in the context of the expression range. 2- based on my explanationabout TCGA data, which functions are better: glm() or glm.nb()? The statistical comparisons are conducted on the normalised, un-transformed counts, which follow a negative binomial distribution. Take a look at ?Surv, or here: For each gene, a tab separated input file was created with columns for TCGA sample id, Time (days_to_death or days_to_last_follow_up), Status (Alive or Dead), and Expression level (High expression or Low/Medium expression). We developed an online consensus survival analysis web server, named OSdlbcl, to assess the â¦ Gud one Kevin. I mean, a value of 0.25 is just 0.25 standard deviations above the mean value, which is not high. These are different functions, so, you should not expect that they return the same p-values. My question is whether your code can be used with a penalized COX multivariable model. Ok thanks. I just chose a hard cut-off of Z=1, though. 2- I need to resize of Font of labels(Survival probability, time,..) in the K-M plot. Gene Expression Analysis. Do you know of any tutorials for doing the penalized Cox regression? For general usage of UCSCXenaTools, please refer to the package vignette. special in Standardization step? First we get information on all datasets in the TCGA LUAD cohort and store as luad_cohort object. So this is what I eventually and it seemed to work: Sure, but, where you use as.numeric(as.factor()) together in this way, you need to be careful about how it converts the factors into numbers - the behaviour may not always be what you expect. Dear Kevin, excellent and comprehensive tutorial as always !!
