Abstract: Alternative gene splicing is a common phenomenon in which a single gene gives rise to multiple transcript isoforms. The process is strictly guided and involves a multitude of proteins and regulatory complexes. Unfortunately, aberrant splicing events have been linked to genetic disorders. Therefore, understanding mechanisms of alternative splicing regulation and differences in splicing events between diseased and healthy tissues is crucial in advancing personalized medicine and drug developments. We propose a linear mixed model, Random Effects for the Identification of Differential Splicing (REIDS), for the identification of alternative splicing events using Human Transcriptome Arrays (HTA). For each exon, a splicing score is calculated based on two scores, an exon score and an array score. The junction information is used to rank the identified exons from strongly confident to less confident candidates for alternative splicing. The design of junctions was also discussed to highlight the complexity of exonexon and exon-junction interactions. Based on a list of Rt-PCR validated probe sets, REIDS outperforms AltAnalyze and iGems in the % recall rate.
