An algorithm to segment count data using a binomial negative model

Thursday 16th January 2014 - 10:00 to 10:30
INI Seminar Room 1
We consider the problem of segmenting a count data profile. We developed an algorithm to recover the best (w.r.t the likelihood) segmentations in 1 to K_{max} segments. We prove that the optimal segmentation can be recovered using a compression scheme which reduces the time complexity. The compression is particularly efficient when the signal has large plateaus. We illustrate our algorithm on next generation sequencing data.
