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!
