Can I ask - I understand that Limma - Voom has been created for RNA -seq --> do you know if it is suitable to be used for micro arrays as well, since LIMMA was created for microarrays anyway?

Code should be placed in three backticks as shown below


# include your problematic code here with any corresponding output

It is (limma, not the voom transformation), just read the manual.

I have, but I am trying to use limma.eu on galaxy to work on microarray data and the main method is voom so I am wondering if this is fine too.

Kevin do you have a suggestion?

You absolutely cannot use voom on microarray data, it is only for sequencing data, not for microarrays.

If galaxy has poor support for microarrays, what about trying limma directly in R? Then you can use the full range of capabilities.
