Hello- I'm using the affy spike-in latin square data to try to determine which summarization technique is the best. I was wondering if anyone new what normalization technique mas5 uses in BioConductor. I have been using quantiles for rma, dChip, plier, and gcrma. I just used the mas5() command to normalize and summarize without considering its technique. I have to go back and renormalize and resummarize if quantile normalization is not its default normalization method in order to yield more consistant data. Thank you, Brian Bennett brianb00@gwu.edu

The mas5 algorithm scales the data to have the same mean (500 is the default). This corresponds to what Affy has published in their documentation. You can look at the code by typing affy.scalevalue.exprSet at an R prompt, or look at the man page by prepending that with a ?. HTH, Jim James W.

I believe it's also quantile if you use affy package.

Oh, no, mas5 assigns a scaling factor: default is 500.
