Hi, Couple of questions regarding the bioconductor packages and the handling of missing values. 1. Is there a currently an impute function implementation( or likelihood of adding an impute function)? 2. Does the exprSet object have a restriction of having missing values in the "exprs" slot ? Thanks Shyam

In most cases one is going to have to use some reasonable amount of external information to perform imputations. This is possible now. > 2.

If you are simply wondering then I suggest that you actually try it and find out. There are lots of runnable examples that can easily be adjusted to produce missing values and without too much effort you can see the answer for yourself.

In the PAML package for R of Tibshirani (Shrunken Centroid Learning) they have used K-nearest neighbour imputation. Obviously you should not use this if there are too many missing values, but then most sensible people will choose to reject an experiment if it is too corrupted prior to this.
