Philippe, Thanks for catching this. And sorry it took so long to reply. We have been busy fixing the problem. Here is what happened: In 2004 we made a change to one of the assessment functions. Specifically, the definition of low, medium and high strate changed for the fold change assessments. Unfortunately we did not rerun the assessment functions on the rma and MAS results to fix the pre-computed assessment included in the package. This is why you couldn't reproduce it. The website also had a few entries that were run with the old functions. We have now re-run the current assessment on everything and changed the precomputed assessments in the package. http://affycomp.jhsph.edu is updated. You can see the old ones here: http://affycomp.jhsph.edu/AFFY2/TABLES.hgu/0.html Fortunately, things don't change much. The affycomp package now contains all the new assessments. Those that have been comparing a method to the rma or MAS 5.0 precomputed assessment should re-run the comparison. Sorry for any trouble this caused.

"Affycomp III" will signal the new page (rather than a cached copy of the old one).
