Dear Member,

I have a control and an experimental chip from Affymetrix.  I am thinking of analyzing the data as following:
Rank the genes:  R= E - C / E + C, where E is the probset intensity from MAS5 analysis for the experimental and C for the control.
Choose a cutoff of R > 0.6 as significant.

Could you point out the flaws and drawbacks of this procedure?.....(I am sure this is probably not the best approach).  Could you suggest another method?
Thanks in advanced.
