COSIE is a function that for a given set of exon arrays corrects for the observed bias and improves the detection of alternative splicing. It adjusts splicing indices for exons, especially for those that belong to differentially expressed genes. For this adjustment, COSIE uses parameters that are specific for each probeset which were trained from a large number of published exon arrays. The downside of this approach is that such parameters cannot be estimated for all probesets on the microarray. Based on our training set, COSIE corrects 95.1 percent of the probesets. Separate parameter files are provided for both the full and core sets, including all probesets that are linked to transcripts. We recommend the use of the core set that was also used in the cited study below. The full set is not as well characterized.
