Dear Yong Li, This experiment has been designed in four blocks, each one representing a biological replicate of all five genotypes. The best and safest way to analyse it is to treat each of the four blocks as batches, removing any block effect. You can do this by: block <- factor(rep(1:4,each=4)) design.block <- model.matrix(~block) targets$Cy3 <- removeExt(targets$Cy3) targets$Cy5 <- removeExt(targets$Cy5) design.mutants <- modelMatrix(targets, ref="Col0") design <- cbind(design.block,design.mutants) This design will also allow for any probe-specific dye effects.
