About the package affyPLM, I would recomend: 1.- Read the vignette: affyPLM: Model Based QC Assessment of Affymetrix GeneChips 2.- Go to the Ben Bolstad web page, where you can see useful images of artifacts and "bad" chips: http://www.stat.berkeley.edu/~bolstad/PLMImageGallery/ About the arrays quality, I would recommend to do some quality controls of the Affy package (boxplots, histograms, images of the chip, RNA degradation plots, etc.) HTH Jordi Altirriba

Hi Also have a look at the simpleaffy package, which has some familiar but useful QC criteria presented in a coherent fashion. My own generic QC pipeline goes something like: require(affy) require(affyPLM) require(simpleaffy) # Input the cel files to an AffyBatch object data1 <- ReadAffy() # simpleaffy QC (scaling factors, 3?/5? ratios etc) qcdat <- qc(data1) plot(qcdat) # Look at the distribution of the PM values boxplot(data1) # Look at some RNA degradation plots deg <- AffyRNAdeg(data1) plotAffyRNAdeg(deg) plot(summaryAffyRNAdeg(deg)[1,]) # Do some probe level modelling Pset <- fitPLM(data1) RLE(Pset) NUSE(Pset) image(Pset, type=?resids?) All this is covered in the affy, affyPLM and simpleaffy vignettes. That being said, RMA and MAS5 are pretty robust against slightly dodgy chips (too bright, too dim, fluff, scratches, etc) but what they can't cope with is duff RNA. RNA degradation will affect different probesets differently because of their relative location to the polyA tail, and no amount of flashy post-image processing or normalisation will rescue that.
