I think what you have is a 2x2 factorial experiment. Check out the weaver mutant data example in the limma example. In your case the first factor is Disease (no disease & disease) and the second factor is Stimulation(unstim, stim). What is of most interest is the interaction of disease and stimulation (DxS). Unstimulated Stimulated No Disease 00 ----------- 0S | | | | Disease D0------------ DS The columns in the design matrix are Disease, Stim and (DiseaseXStim). I would also suggest you look over Glonek and Solomon, Factorial and time course designs for cDNA microarray experiments. Biostatistics 2004 Jan;5(1):89-111. (A copy is also available at http://mag.maths.adelaide.edu.au/documents.html) It has a very nice discussion on factorial designs, in particular 2x2 designs which I think you would find helpful.

Hi Anthony, Now I'm analysing my data (Affymetrix) and I have also a 2x2 factorial design. I think that I could help you, but I have two questions: 1.- What kind of microarrays do you have? Affymetrix, cDNA, ... 2.- How many replicates do you have? Moreover, if you want to begin to make it yourself, you can see the packages LIMMA (there are also the affylmGUI and the limmaGUI developmental packages [I think that GUI are clearer], for Affymetrix and cDNAarrays) and factDesign. For more information about LIMMA look at: http://bioinf.wehi.edu.au/limma/ and their vignettes in the Bioconductor web and for more information about factDesign read the vignette enclosed to the package (I recommend you to use the developmental version 1.1.2). I hope that it helps.
