I'd like to get a precise and intuitive understanding of how empirical Bayes moderation (conducted by `eBayes`

function of the `limma`

package) in the `limma`

analysis pipeline works. I tried to read through the original paper but found it too technical and time-consuming. Could someone explain what exactly `eBayes`

does in as precise and concise terms as possible? I don't mind mathematical/technical descriptions as far as they are short. Thank you in advance!

That is exactly what I was looking for.
