Dear list, I was searching the archives for discussions about the Affymetrix miRNA chip... there are only a few threads and most of them are almost a year old. I was wondering whether in the meantime people had gathered some experience with analysis strategies - normalization in particular - and were willing to share some insights. I do not feel comfortable using RMA because I doubt that total miRNA expression can be assumed to be constant across samples (particularly when studying developmental processes or cancer). Has anybody played with the options? Thanks! Kamila

Great question. At some point, quantile normalization would not be expected to work, because the true distribution of expression values under different conditions would just be too different. You'd see "differential expression" that was an artifact of normalization. I have seen RMA cause that with defective arrays. While I am no expert on all the arguments, I think the proof of the pudding is in the verification of miRNAs your statistical approach found differentially expressed.

Kamila vsnrma (in the vsn package) might be an option for you to try that provides the same probe summary as "normal" rma, but a less aggressive between-array normalisation (namely, only a shifting and scaling, i.e. affine-linear). See also Deepayan Sarkar et al. in NAR 2009, "Quality Assessment and Data Analysis for microRNA Expression Arrays", http://nar.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/37/2/e17 In addition, if you have "negative controls", i.e. probes on the array for which you are willing to believe that they most of them don't change expression, then you can fit the shifting and scaling factors on these, and then apply to all probes.

normalizeCyclicLoess function in limma may help. But I don't know whether it is publicly available now. It will be in new version of Bioconductor. See, http://bioconductor.org/packages/2.6/bioc/manuals/limma/man/limma.pdf More array weights should be given to the control probes as you may consider they are constant across arrays. As the author siad normalise.loess may be another option.
