Dear Members, Is there any way to pre-filter the dataset in LIMMA before going on to differential expression analysis? I am using Agilent microarrays and would really like to filter out genes/spots based on flags. Is this possible in LIMMA? Or is there any better way to filter than using flags in LIMMA? My dataset has a lot of genes and I really think I should use stringent filtering before going onto analysis part. I am thinking of using kind of code given in http://matticklab.com/index.php?title=Single_channel_analysis_of_Agile nt_microarray_data_with_Limma (Thanks to John Mattick <http: matticklab.com="" index.php?title="John_Mattick"> and Gordon Smyth). I would also be extremely grateful if someone could share a bit of such codes since I am just a newbie. Thanks a lot in advance for your help. Kart [[alternative HTML version deleted]]
