Hello, I have a set of four Affymetrix HG-Focus arrays (including two controls and two treatments) to be analyzed. I would like to know whether a set of four arrays is suitable for RMA analysis. In Irizarry et al. (http://www.biostat.jhsph.edu/~ririzarr/papers/affy1.pdf <http: www.biostat.jhsph.edu="" ~ririzarr="" papers="" affy1.pdf=""> ), the minimum number of arrays in a set subjected to RMA analysis was five. In dChip manual, it is mentioned that "For better model fitting and outlier detection, the number of arrays in a dChip group is desired to be more than 5. " (http://biosun1.harvard.edu/complab/dchip/prepare%20data.htm <http: biosun1.harvard.edu="" complab="" dchip="" prepare%20data.htm=""> ). Has anybody compared various methods available in the Affy package for the analysis of a set of four arrays? Which is the best?

i use RMA if i have 2 or more arrays. the roc curves in this paper http://nar.oupjournals.org/cgi/content/full/31/4/e15?ijkey=EAz2cYYbEWQ rE&keytype=ref&siteid=nar are based on 2 array comparisons.
