Hi all

I used Mas5 normalisation over my cel file. After normalisation i have done exprs() call

I am getting negetive value for this

I have not any fold change or log FC over this data


Code :-

cels = list.files("MCF7/data", pattern = ".CEL"), filenames=cels, cdfname="hgu133a2cdf")


mas.exprs is having negetive value

Can any one suggest me how is this possible

Also how can i import mas.norm file for reading norm data

There is no guarantee that you won't have negative values from the MAS5.0 algorithm. It's simply a robust average of the PM - MM probe intensities, scaled to (in the case of the defaults) a value of 500. That's usually a large enough value to scale to, in order to eliminate negative values, but there's nothing in the code to preclude any negative values.
