Goals • If you measure multiple variables on an object it can be important to analyze the measurements simultaneously. • Understand the most important tool in multivariate data analysis Principal Component Analysis. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 6

Multiple measurements • If there is a mutual relationship between two or more measurements they are correlated. • There are strong correlations and weak correlations Mass of an object and the weight of that object on the earth surface UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM Capabilities in sports and month of birth 7

Correlation • Correlation occurs everywhere! • Example: mean height vs. age of a group of young children • A strong linear relationship between height and age is seen. • For young children, height and age are correlated.

The data matrix • Information often comes in the form of a matrix: variables objects • For example, – Spectroscopy: sample wavelength – Proteomics: patient protein UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 11

Large amounts of data • In (bio)chemical analysis, the measured data matrices can be very large. – An infrared spectrum measured for 50 samples gives a data matrix of size 50 800 = 40, 000 numbers! – The matabolome of a 100 patient yield a data matrix of size 1000 = 100, 000 numbers. • We need a way of extracting the important information from large data matrices. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 12

Principal Component Analysis • Data reduction – PCA reduces large data matrices into two smaller matrices which can be more easily examined, plotted and interpreted. • Data exploration – PCA extracts the most important factors (principal components) from the data. These factors describe multivariate interactions between the measured variables. • Data understanding – Principal components can be used to classify samples, identify compound spectra, determine biomarker etc. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 13

Different views of PCA • Statistically, PCA is a multivariate analysis technique closely related to – eigenvector analysis – singular value decomposition (SVD) • In matrix terms, PCA is a decomposition of X into two smaller matrices plus a set of residuals: X = TPT + E • Geometrically, PCA is a projection technique in which X is projected onto a subspace of reduced dimensions. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 14

PCA: mathematics • The basic equation for PCA is written as where X (I J) is a data matrix, T (I R) are the scores, P (J R) are the loadings and E (I J) are the residuals. R is the number of principal components used to describe X. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 15

Principal components • A principal component is defined by one pair of loadings and scores, , sometimes also known as a latent variable. • Principal components describe maximum variance and are calculated in order of importance, e. g. Principal comp. %X explained Total % X explained 1 45. 6 2 23. 9 69. 5 3 18. 1 87. 6 4 1. 3 88. 9 and so on. . . up to 100% UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 16

PCA: matrices loadings X = . . . + + scores principal component = PT + E T UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 17

Scores and loadings • Scores – relationships between objects – orthogonal, TTT = diagonal matrix • Loadings – relationships between variables – orthonormal, PTP = identity matrix, I • Similarities and differences between objects (or variables) can be seen by plotting scores (or loadings) against each other. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 18

Numbers example UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 19

PCA: simple projection • Simplest case: two correlated variables scores plot PC 1 PC 2 PCA • PC 1 describes 99. 77% of the total variation in X. • PC 2 describes residual variation (0. 23%). UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 20

PCA: projections • PCA is a projection technique. • Each row of the data matrix X (I J) can be considered as a point in J-dimensional space. This data is projected orthogonally onto a subspace of lower dimensionality. – In the previous example, we projected the two-dimensional data onto a one-dimensional space, i. e. onto a line. – Now we will project some J-dimensional data onto a twodimensional space, i. e. onto a plane. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 21

Example : Protein data • Protein consumption across Europe was studied. • 9 variables describe different sources of protein. • 25 objects are the different countries. • Data matrix has dimensions 25 9. • Which countries are similar? • Which foods are related to red meat consumption?

PCA on the protein data • The data is mean-centred and each variable is scaled to unit variance. Then a PCA is performed.

Residuals • It is also important to look at the model residuals, E. • Ideally, the residuals will not contain any structure just unsystematic variation (noise). UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 30

Residuals • The (squared) model residuals can be summed along the object or variable direction: Country 23 (USSR) fits the model least well UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 31

Centering and scaling • We are often interested in the differences between objects, not in their absolute values. – protein data: differences between countries • If different variables are measured in different units, some scaling is needed to give each variable an equal chance of contributing to the model. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 32

Mean-centering • Subtract the mean from each column of X: Meancentering 6. 525 36. 75 10840 UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 0. 0 33

Scaling • Divide each column of X by its standard deviation: Scaling 0. 171 1. 139 704. 8 UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 1. 0 34

How many PC’s to use? X = TPT + E systematic variation noise • Too few PC’s: – some systematic variation is not described. – model does not fully summarise the data. • Too many PC’s: – latter PC’s describe noise. – model is not robust when applied to new data. • How to select the correct number of PC’s? UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 35

How many PC’s to use? • Eigenvalue plots ‘Knee’ here select 4 PC’s • Select components where explained % variance > noise level • Look at PC scores and loadings - do they make sense? ! Do residuals have structure? • Cross-validation UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 36

Cross-validation • Remove subset of the data test set. • Build model on remaining data - training set. • Project test set onto model calculate residuals. • Repeat for next test set. • Calculate PRESS: • Repeat for R = 1, 2, 3. . .

Outliers • Outliers are objects which are very different from the rest of the data. These can have a large effect on the principal component model and should be removed. Remove outlier bad experiment UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 39

Outliers • Outliers can also be found in the model space or in the residuals. 6 Scores PC 2 4 2 0 -2 -4 -6 -8 -8 -6 -4 -2 0 2 Scores PC 1 4 6 UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 8 40

Conclusions • Principal component analysis (PCA) reduces large, collinear matrices into two smaller matrices - scores and loadings: • Principal components – describe the important variation in the data. – are calculated in order of importance. – are orthogonal. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 42

Conclusions • Scores plots and biplots can be useful for exploring and understanding the data. • It is often correct to mean-center and scale the variables prior to analysis. • It is important to include the correct number of PC’s in the PCA model. One method for determining this is called cross-validation. UNIVERSITY OF A MSTERDAM 43
