A Two-Color Interacting Random Balls Model for Co-localization Analysis of Proteins
A model of two-type (or two-color) interacting random balls is introduced. Each colored random set is a union of random balls and the interaction relies on the volume of the intersection between the two random sets. This model is motivated by the detection and quantification of co-localization between two proteins. Simulation and inference are discussed. Since all individual balls cannot been identified, e.g. a ball may contain another one, standard methods of inference as likelihood or pseudolikelihood are not available and we apply the Takacs-Fiksel method with a specific choice of test functions.
