Dear all, I have been using normalize.loess and I get the following error message when my matrix contains NA values: > my.mat = matrix(nrow=100, ncol=4, runif(400) ) > my.mat[1,1]=NA > my.mat.n = normalize.loess(my.mat, verbose=TRUE) Done with 1 vs 2 in iteration 1 Done with 1 vs 3 in iteration 1 Done with 1 vs 4 in iteration 1 Done with 2 vs 3 in iteration 1 Done with 2 vs 4 in iteration 1 Done with 3 vs 4 in iteration 1 1 0.317319 Warning messages: 1: In means[, j] + aux : ?longer object length is not a multiple of shorter object length 2: In means[, k] - aux : ?longer object length is not a multiple of shorter object length ... Is that normal? I'm scared that this introduces abnormalities in the normalization.
