[BioC] Could limma be as good as GeneSpring in normalization?

Hi there,

Your best bet is to contact silicon genetics (now part of agilent) about
genespring. Their website is

Personally I don't like GeneSpring as it does not do very well with
complicated microarray designs and works best (really only in my hands) with
indirect experiment designs. Not too mention it is seriously expensive.

Today I read a paper in Plant Cell, and the researcheres used GeneSpring
4.2 software (Silicon Genetics, Redwood, CA) to nomalize their data. I
wonder if anyone here knows something about the software, and if this
software has more function than limma.

Thank you very much!
