Hi, I have two different datasets which are both originally from the Affymetrix platform but now I only have the expression matrix. Both datasets have an overall different distribution of expression. What I would like to do is quantile normalisation on each of the experiments in one dataset to the quantile curve of the other dataset i.e. I want to leave the second dataset untouched, but normalise the first to it. ANy ideas how to do this? I looked at normalize.quantiles but it does not appear to do what I want.

Assuming that the second dataset is quantile normalized and that its expression matrix is called "expression2", what you want to do is: ref <- sort(expression2[,1]) ## if it is quantile normalized, every column has the same distribution for (i in 1:ncol(expression1)) expression1[order(expression1[,i]),i] <- ref b On May 22, 2007, at 10:17 AM, Daniel Brewer wrote: > Hi, > > I have two different datasets which are both originally from the > Affymetrix platform but now I only have the expression matrix.

Just found another complicating factor. Even though both sets are from Affymetrix arrays they are from different types and so have different numbers of probes. Therefore quantile normalisation may not be the way forward. Are there any other cross array normalisation techniques which would be suitable, whilst still retaining that one dataset is left untouched?

Hi Daniel! Even if you had managed to apply a quantile normalization I doubt that it would have really solved your problem. Cominbining micorarray results from different studies (even if the same platform is used) is a tricky thing. A recent publication on this is <http: www.biomedcentral.com="" 1471-2105="" 8="" 80=""> Bayesian meta-analysis models for microarray data: a comparative study Erin M Conlon, Joon J Song, Anna Liu BMC Bioinformatics 2007, 8:80 Hope this helps Claus Daniel Brewer wrote: > Just found another complicating factor.
