When using the ComBat function for batch correction, what is the difference between the following two specifications of the matrix model :

```
mod <- model.matrix(~1, dat=colData)
mod <- model.matrix(~ ConditionOfInterest, dat=colData)
```

When calling

```
ComBat(dat=expressionMatrix, batch=colData$Batch, mod = mod)
```
