... Ok, so you're saying that the statistics reported by topTable after contrasts.fit, but before the second eBayes are based on incorrect variances? If so, what is topTable using to calculate its statistics? I had thought that only the gene-wise variances were updated by eBayes and that the c ...

... I'm not sure I'm clear on your suggestion. Is it necessary to call eBayes twice your workflow? What would be the effect in that case? ...

... Hello, I have run into a new issue (for me) in fitting a limma model. The model I am fitting includes a number of covariates/additional factors, such as ages and weights of individuals associated with a given "array", several random factors, such as race/ethnicity, region, and the factor defining m ...

... I agree, I would be making some very arbitrary choices here that could affect the analysis is unpredictable ways. I really like the idea of using a vector argument to lfc. I will play around with this. Removing the problematic interactors wouldn't work in our case since there may still be some biolo ...

... Sorry for my delay in responding. The array is a functional protein array and interactions with the "prey" (proteins printed on the array) are detected by an antibody to the "bait" (what was put on the array). A non-specific interaction would be caused by "stickiness" of the prey. In general, we wou ...

... Hi all, I am developing an analysis of protein microarray data and have found that limma performs very well in terms of identifying positive controls in the assay. Unfortunately, there are a large number of known, non-specific interactors that previous people have been identified in earlier experime ...

... Thanks! I guess I had assumed that since no initialize method was defined for the subclass it would pass all its arguments unchanged to the parent class initialize method, like an implicit callNextMethod. I need to look more into SummarizedExperiment and how difficult it would be to interoperate wit ...

... I see what you're saying. After looking over the code for the RccSet class definition a bit, it looks like they had to create a new assayData environment instance out of a matrix before calling the ExpressionSet constructor and made a bunch of methods to cover their bases depending on the input. How ...

... Hello, This question was asked here previously around 7 years ago (https://support.bioconductor.org/p/36937/), however the answer seems to have either changed or the problem I'm facing is not the same. I am trying to write a class that extends ExpressionSet. I keep running into the following error: ...
