Dear Endre, It sounds as if limma recognised the ArrayVision format fine. As far as I know, there is no way to tell from the ArrayVision file which channel is cy3 and which is cy5. Even though limma got them the wrong way around in this case, it doesn't really matter because it makes no difference to the analysis. The Data-Ctrl contrast is the same regardless of which is R and which is G. Best wishes Gordon On Mon, 31 Mar 2008, Endre Sebestyen wrote: > Thanks for your answer.
