Shortest Path Reconstruction algorithm extended with different dimensionality reduction methods and tunable imputation parameter .
Algorithm developped by Lesnes et al  which reconstruct the 3D coordinates of a chromosom from a normalized HiC map (SCN ). The Algorithm is basically in two parts:
- Conversion from normalized HiC contact matrix in distance matrix such that
- Conversion of the distance mtrix in 3D coordinates with MDS
Tuning the imputation parameter
Conversion from normalized HiC contact matrix in distance matrix such that . The modification of the parameter allows to tune the range of contacts to imputes (see Video Evolution imputation (in black) with alpha )
Changing the dimensionality reduction algorithm
The MDS allows to reconstruct large distances efficiently, whereas sometimes the short range distances reconstruction are needed. The Sammon mapping and other DR (Dimensionality Reduction) algorithms allows to change the reconstruction focus.
