This R package provides:
- strip-level normalization and plotting;
- "normexp" background correction aided by negative controls.
For strip-level normalization, please cite:
Shi, W, Banerjee, A, Ritchie, ME, Gerondakis, S, and Smyth, GK (2009). Illumina WG-6 BeadChip strips should be normalized separately. BMC Bioinformatics 10, 372. [Full Text]
This package is recommended only for version 1 of Illumina WG-6 BeadChips. For later types of Illumina arrays, please use the limma package instead.
