Dear Bill - thanks for the interesting work related to scalable microarray preprocessing. We have recently submitted a closely related manuscript for review. Similar to your work, the proposed Online-RPA algorithm reads CEL files in batches to update the hyperparameters of a probabilistic probe-level model. This yields a fully scalable algorithm (linear time wrt. sample size) which systematically outperforms the standard RMA in various benchmarking tests, is readily applicable to all Affymetrix and other short oligo arrays (in contrast to fRMA), and has been used to preprocess data sets with tens of thousands of arrays. The preprint is available through arXiv arxiv.org/abs/1212.5932 "A fully scalable online-preprocessing algorithm for short oligonucleotide microarray atlases."). The implementation (function rpa.online) is available through Bioconductor RPA package: http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/devel/bioc/html/RPA.html Would be interesting to compare the two approaches experimentally. best regards, Leo Lahti, Finland http://www.iki.fi/Leo.Lahti > Date: Mon, 31 Dec 2012 11:20:18 -0800 (PST) > From: "wlangdon [guest]" <guest at="" bioconductor.org=""> > To: bioconductor at r-project.org, w.langdon at cs.ucl.ac.uk > Cc: affy Maintainer <rafa at="" jhu.edu=""> > Subject: [BioC] normalise many cel files TCBB-2007-11-0161_noCEL.tar > Message-ID: <20121231192018.BDD99133105 at mamba.fhcrc.org> > > > Today I wrote to Rafael Irizarry about this and he suggested I post my message here. > > Some time back I wrote some R code to normalise from > one to several tens of thousand Affymetrix cel files on a > (Linux) PC. > > The advantage is that it does not keep all cel files in memory > all the time and so the usual memory limits which restrict the > number of cel files do not apply. > http://www.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/W.Langdon/ftp/gp- code/R/TCBB-2007-11-0161_noCEL.tar > > The R-code also reports spatial defects: > A Survey of Spatial Defects in Homo Sapiens Affymetrix GeneChips, > W.

Dear Leo, Nice to hear from you. I guess our approaches are complementary rather than competitive. The code in http://www.cs.ucl.ac.uk/staff/W.Langdon/ftp/gp- code/R/TCBB-2007-11-0161_noCEL.tar does not try and replace RMA but provides a means of locating dodgy areas on microarrays. Spatial errors. Ie less trustworthy probe values. Also robust averages (ie with outlier removal) of tens of thousands of cel files can be calculated on a fairly standard PC using R by not trying to keep them all simultaneously in R data structures. We have used the resulting "average array" to quantile normalise single genechips (or 10000+ arrays). Much of our subsequent analysis has been using individual probes (see http://bioinformatics.essex.ac.uk/users/wlangdon/rnanet/ ) but the original idea was to feed the normalised probe data into RMA and similiar probeset based algorithms.
