Dear BioC,
I'm attempting to use the duplicateCorrelation function within limma
to
control for fact that tissues being studied come from the same
animals.
I understand that for this work appropriately, dupfit$consensus needs
to
be positive, which at "1", it is.
But such an exact value is concerning to my inexperienced eye.
I'd greatly appreciate hearing from people with experience using
duplicateCorrelation what this outcome represents and if indeed is
something to be wary of and perhaps omitted.
With thanks in advance,
cheers,
Karl
