Hi all,

 

I'm remapping a bunch of hgu133plus2 probes to novel transcripts.  It seems like I need to redefine a number of probesets to do this properly, which is not a big deal, but I also want to use fRMA on the resulting data structure.  I have about 1000 CEL files from roughly comparable tissues lying around.  Is that enough to reliably generate new and usable frma vectors?

 

Thanks!

Tim,

I believe your question is answered by Table 1 of this paper:

But I would add that it also depends on what you are planning to do with the fRMA vectors. Specifically, I would think about whether your training data captures the type of within- and between-batch variability you are likely to see in the data you are planning to preprocess with these vectors. 

Best,

Matt

Well, I don't have any technical replicates between batches, but it looks like 5-10 batches of 100-200 arrays should work well enough. I'm just porting a technique from the Liu lab that I want to mechanize on a few thousand arrays with reproducible results. fRMA/barcoding seems like the easiest way to make it happen. Thanks much! For your reply and for the frmaTools package. I am doing some maintenance myself today so I recognize it is largely thankless.
