Title: ``New Statistical Algorithms for Monitoring Gene Expression on GeneChip Probe Arrays''
Speaker: Lillian Rosa
Place: KRAN G016; Tuesday, 4:30pm

Affymetrix has designed new algorithms for monitoring GeneChip(R) expression data. These statistical algorithms, created in response to customer input, were designed to accommodate the typical distribution of data found in microarray experiments. The new statistical algorithms employ standard statistical techniques and are optimized to accommodate advancements in array and probe selection technology. They provide accurate, high-quality analysis for GeneChip(R) array data. This presentation will review the design and testing for Affymetrix new statistical algorithms and explores performance characteristics of the statistical algorithms versus the previous empirical algorithms.
