Development of linkage disequilibria in SNP sites: An initial, genetically diverse population is drastically reduced in its number of individuals e. This causes a "populational bottleneck" where only a very few different haplotypes remain within a population. Redevelopment of a population based on this non-diverse genetic material causes linkage disequilibrium in the alleles, which decays over time due to mutations and recombination. The phenomenon of linkage disequilibrium relating to SNPs is illustrated in Figure 2. Linkage disequilibrium of individuals' genes within a population "decays" with population history due to recombination [HaCl97].
It is believed that linkage disequilibrium around common alleles is a lot less frequent than around rare alleles, which are generally younger and thus less decayed by recombination [Watt77]. Using these assumptions, Reich et al. The article mentions that for some 20 A populational bottleneck is a period in population history where there are very few individuals in the population. These individuals then gave rise to the haplotypes found in a population today--conserved genetic patterns in the haplotypes can therefore be backwardly related to the respective ancestral individuals that lived during the bottleneck.
One example for this is the recent study of the malaria parasite Plasmodium Falciparum in [Mu02], this parasite has been of intense interest since it infects hundreds of millions of people each year, being responsible for almost 3 million annual deaths [Brem01]. By finding some common SNP regions in different Plasmodium Falciparum populations, it is the hope of current research to build an accurate map of the ancestral relationship of various Plasmodium Falciparum strains. Such a map of ancestral relationships could help in identifying common antigens for immunizations [Gard98].
It was conjectured in [RLHA98] that the human malaria parasite experienced a populational bottleneck about years ago, further sparking the hope that it would be possible to find some common drug targets among malaria parasites. The study of populational history based on traits of individuals which--among others--may be the presence of highly correlated SNP sites and its algorithmic tractability is studied in Chapter 5 of this work, where a special model of analysis called perfect phylogeny will be employed.
As will be seen in Chapter 5, SNPs provide very good data for this model due to their very low mutation rate. Using SNPs in pharmacogenetics is of immense economical interest to pharmaceu- tical companies. The problem with a lot of drug therapies is the possibility of adverse drug reactions by patients: Research by Lazarou, Pomeranz, and Corey [LPC98] suggests that, in , such reactions were responsible for millions of hospitalizations and almost a hundred thousand deaths.

This value is not likely to have improved lately and is hindering the introduction of new medications that are effective in most patients but pose unbearable risks: For example, the quite effective anticonvulsant drug Lamictal c by Glaxo Wellcome is only reluctantly prescribed because of a potentially fatal skin rash that arises as a side effect in five percent of all patients taking the drug [Maso99]. The problem of the different effects drugs exert on patients has long been known and studied, already over a hundred years ago Sir William Osler 22 reflected: The basic idea in pharmacogenetics is to build a profile of an individual's genetic variations in order to predict effectiveness and side-effects of drugs.
As was discussed above--since genetic variation is mainly due to SNPs--a hope of pharmacogenetics relies on building an accurate map of SNP haplotypes. Roughly speaking, the hope is to identify linkage disequilibrium loci around certain genes that are susceptible for causing a certain adverse reaction to drugs. The same technique has already been applied in the study of individuals' susceptibility to certain complex genetic diseases such as Alzheimer's disease: In an analysis of polymorphisms on the ApoE gene locus on chromosome 19, Martin et al.
A number of other studies successfully related the susceptibility for complex genetic diseases such as migraine with aura, psoriasis, and insulin-independent diabetes mellitus to certain SNPs in linkage disequilibrium [Rose00]. Now, just as linkage disequilibria can be related to the susceptibility for diseases, they can also be related to certain drug reactions.
Two good examples for this are, e. Specifically, an enzyme labeled CYP2D6 is a key in inactivating nortryptiline and removing the inactivated substance from the body--except in some people that have variations in their CYP2D6 encoding gene. These variations may lead to two undesired effects [DeVa94]: People referred to as "ultra metabolizers" have a variation that causes the synthesis of too much CYP2D6 in their body, thus inactivating so much nortriptyline that these people are likely to receive insufficient antidepressant effects from nortriptyline.
Canadian physician and professor of medicine who played a key role in the transformation of the curriculum of medical education in the late 19th and early 20th century. Profiling SNPs in pharmacogenetics: If there is a section of the SNP genotype profile that proves to be different in patients where a drug is effective as opposed to patients where a drug shows no efficacy or undesired side-effects, this region can be used to predict the effectiveness and potential risks due to side effects in a patient before a drug is prescribed.
Genetic testing for variation in the gene for the CYP2D6 enzyme could avoid both scenarios. In- teracting with the betaadrenergic receptors in the lung, they cause the freeing of airways by inducing muscle relaxation in the lung muscles. A SNP in the gene encoding the betaadrenergic receptor causes the carriers of one SNP variant to express fewer of these receptors, therefore receiving little relief of asthma symptoms upon a standard dose of albuterol [Ligg97]. It is clear that the prospects of being able to predict the efficacy of a drug whilst minimizing the risk of side-effects is of great interest to the pharmaceutical industry, which could then-- as Roses proposes in [Rose00]--create efficacy profiles for patients see Figure 2.
Preclinical Research includes controlled experiments using a new substance in animals and test tubes and may take several years. Phase I trials are first tests of the investigated drug on humans. Doses are gradually increased to ensure safety. Phase II trials will gather information about the actual efficacy of a drug. Phase III trials studies a drugs effects with respect to gender, age, race, etc. A successful phase III trial leads to the admission of a drug to the public market. Occasionally, phase IV trials are conducted that are--in principle--phase III trials on an even broader variety of patients.
Furthermore, the development of new, more effective drugs can be facilitated: The parallel developments of drugs targeting specific symptoms is facilitated because patients who do not respond to a certain medication can be profiled in early clinical trial stages. Additionally, the development of medications which are highly effective in only a comparably small part of a population e. Pharmacogenetics relying on SNP linkage analysis seems to be a promising start to replacing trial-and-error prescriptions with specifically targeted medical therapies.
The introduction of abbreviated profiles plays an important role in the discussion about the fear of "individual DNA profiling" because they cannot be backwardly related to a patient. Chapter 3 Computer Science Preliminaries and Notation The first section of this chapter introduces the notation used throughout this work, followed by a brief introduction to those ideas in computational complexity that are important to this work.
Especially, the last section focuses on fixed-parameter tractability, laying a foundation for the computational complexity analysis in the following chapters. By a ij we designate the element in A that may be found at the jth position of the ith row. We will use the terms A and a ij synonymously. A graph consists of vertices and edges, where a vertex is an object with a name and other properties such as a color and an edge is the connection of two vertices. A cycle of length in G is a sequence of vertices v 1 v 2. Nodes of degree 1 in a rooted tree are called leafs. A subgraph of G that is maximally connected with respect to its number of vertices is called a connected component.
The graph G is called planar if it can be embedded into an Euclidian plane without any intersecting edges. In this work--especially in Chapter we will be using the following set of operations on graphs: The definition of an edge separator E E of order k is analogous. It is the idea behind any computer program" [Skie98]. The first goal for any algorithm is to be effective, i. Computational complexity theory deals with the amount of resources--the two most important of which are time and memory 2 --required to solve a certain computational problem by an algorithm.
A brief introduction to analyzing the time complexity of algorithms is given in [Skie98], a very thorough treatment of complexity theory may be found, e. This section will introduce some basic terminology from computational complexity theory that will be used throughout this work. We would now like to analyze the performance--especially concerning speed--of this algorithm.
The most obvious way of this would be to run A on a lot of instances of P and measure the time it takes for A 1 In order to distinguish tree from graphs more easily throughout this work, we will use the term "vertex" for general graphs and the synonymous "node" for vertices in trees.
However, with this approach, we quickly run into a multitude of problems, the most crucial of which are that the absolute time measured is influenced by the actual machines computer architecture 3 , absolute time values are only useful for one particular type of machine, we can seldomly test the algorithm on all conceivable instances, and a purely practical analysis provides no indication about an algorithm's maximal worst- case running time. Complexity theory tries to avoid these problems arising from a direct machine analysis by analyzing computational problems in a more formal and mathematical way.
This analysis is machine-independent whilst still trying to incorporate the fundamental workings of a modern computer. Traditionally, complexity theory relies on the Turing Machine as its model of computation which is, however, a quite abstract model of computation lacking any close relationship to modern computers. Instead, they are the composition of many single-step operations. Each memory access takes exactly one time step, and we have as much memory as we need. The advantage of the RAM model lies in the fact that it captures the essential behavior of a modern computer without introducing any fickle parameters such as memory bandwidth, actual processor speed, and memory access time, just to name a few.
The next subsection demonstrates the usage of this model in the analysis of an algorithm's time complexity. This, however, requires a last step of formalization: Besides the machine model, the term "problem" needs to be specified. Most of computational complexity theory solely deals with decision problems because almost any "reasonable" way of stating a problem can be transformed into a decision problem.
Due to these many factors it is sometimes even difficult to obtain consistent results on a single, defined machine. For example, requirements such as memory and time are very easy to define for a Turing Machine and can be analyzed with great accuracy. Furthermore, Turing Machines can simulate other machine models--one Turing Machine can, in theory, even simulate an infinite number of Turing Machines.
The simulation of an algorithm on the RAM model which will be introduced shortly by a Turing Machine requires only polynomially more time than its execution on directly on the RAM the term "polynomially more time" will also be defined more precisely later on in this chapter. Analyzing decision problems is closely related to the fact that in complexity theory, a pro- blem is generally formulated as a language L and asking i.
Both the language L and the instance I are a subset of for an alphabet , where is a finite set of symbols and is the set of all words that may be generated by concatenation of symbols from , including the empty word which contains no symbols at all. It should be noted that stating a problem in form of a language presents this particular problem in a very abstract form. Neither an algorithm for solving the problem is given nor any obvious hint about the time complexity of solving this problem.
In order to deal with this, we will introduce the model of complexity classes and reductions later on in this chapter. For the sake of simplifying the discussion in this work, we will refrain from stating problems in the form of a language. Instead, we will simply assume that the given problems may be stated in the form of a language. Furthermore, instead of asking whether an instance I is in L, we shall directly deal the object x that I represents such as a word, number, graph, etc. Rather, in order to understand the quality of an algorithm, it is vital to know how it performs on any conceivable instance x of P and express this performance in an intuitive way.
This is done by introducing three new ideas: Analyzing how the running time of algorithms scales with the problem size, distinguishing between worst, best and average-case complexity emphasizing on worst-case complexity , and analyzing the scaling of the algorithm in its asymptotic behavior. The first idea is based on the intuitive observation that an algorithm should generally take longer time to run as the presented instance becomes larger.
For instance, a graph problem on a general 11 graph consisting of ten vertices should be easier to solve than the same problem for a general graph with a thousand vertices. A function f x and its bounds in O-notation: From left to right, g x is an upper, lower and tight bound on f x. Most of the time, only the worst-case complexity of an algorithm is interesting since average- case and--especially--best-case complexity provide no information whatsoever about the running time that A might have when presented with any instance x.
There may be some problems which are rather easy to solve on many instances, but this is of no use if we should--consciously or not--be dealing just with hard instances during the application of the algorithm. The computational RAM model introduced in the last subsection provided a way to measure the running time of a given algorithm A exact to a single time unit. This degree of accuracy is not useful as for such exact counts the function f that measures the running time of A will often get very complicated and unintuitive to analyze. Therefore, 12 Later on, we will analyze algorithms in more detail using various parameters of the input.
For example, the running time of a graph algorithm may depend on the number of edges as well as on the number of vertices in the graph. The number of edges in the graph is lower than V 2 , but explicitly using the number of edges provides a better analysis. In order to simplify the discussion, however, we will for now assume that there is just a single input size parameter given.
Given two functions f: This notation is illustrated by Figure 3. Is it possible to choose a set V V with V k such that every edge in E has at least one endpoint in V? A very trivial algorithm A VCtrivial for this would be to simply try all possible solutions of size k and see whether one of these hypothetical solutions is indeed a vertex cover for the given graph: Note how for each edge in G, at least one of its endpoints is in the given vertex cover.
The shown vertex cover for G is optimal in the sense that there is no vertex cover for G with fewer than 17 vertices this was verified using a computer program. We will now analyze the running time of A VCtrivial in terms of the number of vertices V and the number of edges E in G. Since both terminate A VCtrivial , they are executed at most once, and thus do not play a role in the asymptotic running time of A VCtrivial. Line 02 can be executed by calling the following subroutine: Iterate over all edges of G, and check for every edge whether at least one of its endpoints is in V.
If we have been clever enough and marked those vertices that are in V during the execution of line 01 , executing this line only requires O E running time. For the seemingly most difficult line to analyze, line 01 , we make use of the machine-independency of our analysis by using an algorithm for generating subsets from the extensive available literature on algorithms e. For finding the total running time of A VCtrivial , it is now sufficient to observe that line 01 causes line 02 to be executed once for each of the at most V k subsets generated.
Taking into account the time requirements of line 02 , the total running 17 A quick glance at the algorithm demonstrates the advantage of all the conventions we have introduced above. However, this is not important for the performance of an algorithm in O-notation: Assume, for example, that each simple computational operation would consume four time units instead of one on a machine RAM as opposed to our RAM model.
If there is an algorithm that, e. This upper bound is quite unsatisfactory for practical applications, for it implies an enormous worst-case running time even for small graphs and small k. The next subsection and the following section will demonstrate that actually both is true, that is, Vertex Cover is believed to be "hard to solve" we will define this more precisely in the next subsection but there are ways of "taming" this inherent complexity, as will be shown in Section 3.
However, it was not clear whether this problem is hard to solve in general or if we just haven't come up with a good algorithm. We would now like to know wether there is a better algorithm for Vertex Cover than the one presented, or--even better--know the fastest possible algorithm for Vertex Cover i. The first request is comparably easy to come by, we just have to look for an algorithm with a better worst-case running time than the one presented.
The latter however is a lot harder to deal with, because in finding a lower bound for the time complexity of Vertex Cover it is necessary to consider every thinkable algorithm for Vertex Cover--even algorithms that have not yet been found. Reductions will allow us to divide problems into different "classes of difficulty". The idea behind this is the following: Although not knowing how hard an individual problem might be, we can relate problems to each other so that we know they are both "equally hard" to solve, meaning if there is a fast algorithm for one problem, there must be one for the other problem, too.
A collection of such related problems is called a complexity class a more formal definition will follow shortly. Problems are grouped together in complexity classes by finding a computationally "cheap" 21 transformation between instances of one problem and the other. Then, loosely speaking, if we know that if one of the two problems turns out to be easy to solve, we also know that the second problem is easy to solve, because we can apply the algorithm for the easy problem to transformed instances of the other one.
In a more formal fashion: Given two languages L 1 1 and L 2 2. We call L 1 1 polynomial-time reducible to L 2 2 designated L 1 poly L 2 if there is a function R from 1 to 2 that can be computed in polynomial time on any x 1 and x L 1 R x L 2. However, we shall work just with polynomial time reductions for the rest of this section. The concept of polynomial time reduction may be used to build a hierarchy of computational problems. This hierarchy consists of classes C. In each class, we can find those problems that are solvable using the resources allowed by the respective class.
Furthermore, we introduce the concept of completeness to identify those problems in a class that are computationally as hard to solve as any other problem in that class. In this way, if a problem that is complete for a class should prove to be "easy" to solve, we know the same to be true for all other problems that are in C. Let C be a complexity class. A language L is called C-hard if all languages in C can be reduced in polynomial time to L. There is a vast number of complexity classes known today see, for example, [Aaro03] , each of them grouping together problems with various properties.
Two of the first classes that were developed and are of much interest for this work are P and NP. The complexity class P is the class of computational problems that can be solved in polyno- mial time on a deterministic Turing Machine. The complexity class NP is the class of computational problems that can be solved in poly- nomial time on a nondeterministic Turing Machine.
Although our definition uses the term "polynomial" to describe all problems in NP, it is widely believed that all NP-complete problems are only solvable in exponential time. The reason for this is the computational model underlying the definition: A nondetermin- istic Turing Machine is a very unrealistic model of computation, being able to--vaguely speaking--correctly "guess" the solution to a problem and then only needing to verify its correctness the process of checking must then be done in polynomial time.
However, all computers known today are deterministic, and therefore they have to "emulate" the guessing steps of the nondeterministic Turing Machine in order to find a solution to an NP-complete problem. This emulation is done by simply checking all possibilities for a possible solution which takes--in worst-case complexity--an exponential amount of time. It must be stressed that no proof whatsoever has been given that problems in NP are at best solvable in exponential time.
All we have stated is a plausibility argument: There are thousands of problems known to be NP-complete even the rather outdated list of [GaJo79] lists hundreds of NP-complete problems , finding a polynomial time algorithm for just one NP-complete problem would show that all NP-complete problems are polynomially solvable, but this has not happened in spite of over 25 years of research so far. There are therefore two important things to be remembered throughout this work: The Vertex Cover problem posed at the beginning of the previous subsection has been proven to be NP-complete in [GaJo79], where it is shown that Vertex Cover is even NP- complete for planar graphs where each vertex has a degree of at most 3 A long time, an NP-completeness proof for a problem was taken as a synonym for "unsolvable already for moderate input sizes" coining the term "intractable".
However, this is not true in general, as the next section demonstrates. This size we named n. We have also seen the class NP, reasoning that problems complete for this class most probably have a worst-case running time that is exponential, i. Since this usually implies unreasonably high running times for large n, problems that are NP-hard are also referred to as being intractable.
We have also stated in the last section--citing from [GaJo79]--that the problem Vertex Cover see Defini- tion 3. The NP-completeness of Vertex Cover implies that it is most probably only solvable in O a n time where n is the size of the input instance and a is some constant. However, this definition provides us with two loopholes: A small a could lead to algorithms that are fast enough even for a fairly large n.
What if we could restrict the exponential complexity of Vertex Cover to the parameter k which is given along with the input graph according to Definition 3. After that, a short introduction to parameterized complexity theory is given. The strategy for this will be quite straightforward. If a given graph G has a vertex cover of size k, then we can choose k vertices in G such that every edge in G includes at least one vertex from the cover.
Either V contains v a or V contains v b. For each of these cases, we would then look at the uncovered edges, pick one, and again consider the two cases for putting a vertex of that edge into V the common term for this is to branch into those two cases. This recursive algorithm leads to a tree-like structure searching for vertex covers of size k for G--depicted in Figure 3.
Note that for each level down the search tree, we have one vertex less left to form a vertex cover for G. If we cannot find a vertex cover for G in the kth level of the search tree, then, as we have tried all possibilities of a vertex cover for G, G has no vertex cover of size k. The described algorithm can be rewritten in a more formal fashion: So what is the running time of this algorithm?
Without the recursion i. The algorithm A tree calls A tree with a different input, especially, k is decreased by one at most two times. Each call itself takes--as mentioned above--O E time which means in total, A tree requires at most O 2 k E time to solve a given instance G, k of Vertex Cover, a fairly large improvement compared to the trivial algorithm proposed in the last section, and moreover, the exponential part in the running time of A tree is independent of the size of G. The search tree for finding a vertex cover of size k for a given graph: Either, u is in the vertex cover or v.
The respective vertex from G is chosen into the vertex cover and can then, along with its adjacent edges which are now covered, be removed from G , k decreased, and the algorithm proceeds if no vertex cover for G has been found yet and we have not yet chosen k vertices into the cover. Note that A tree is not the optimal fixed-parameter algorithm for Vertex Cover known to- day. This is done by optimizing the search tree: Instead of branching into two subcases and decreasing k by one each time the algorithm is called recursively, the algorithm may branch into more complex cases, allowing it to decrease k by more than 1 in some branches of the tree.
Using the mathematical tool of recursion analysis, it can be analyzed how these complex cases decrease the base of the exponent in the algorithm. It should furthermore be noted that the algorithm uses the technique of problem kernel reduction 23 on Vertex 23 Kernel reductions are based on the idea that using the parameter k, we can already decide for some parts of the input instance how they will add to the solution of the problem.
A problem kernel reduction causes the input instance to be smaller than f k for some f whilst being computable in polynomial time. BWL - Personal und Organisation.
