RefPlus-package: RMA based on reference microarrays: RMA+ and RMA++ methods

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

RMA+ is an extenstion of the RMA algorithm that calculates the probeset intensities of a microarray using a pre-stored RMA model fitted on previously obtained microarrays, e.g. reference microarrays. RMA++ is a further extension based on the RMA+ method. This package depends on the affyPLM package.

Use rma.para to obtain the reference quantiles and the probe effects from a reference set, then use rmaplus to calculate the RMA+ intensities based on the fitted reference quantiles and probe effects.
