[BioC] Removing bad probesets

Hi, Ben:

Thank you very much for help.

Your suggestion for using 'subset' to remove bad probesets works very well
for RMA().    

For anyone who knows how to run dChip or mas5 using a subset of good
probesets on the chips, please do not be hesitated to help.  I am processing
MGU74A on which there are 2613 antisense probes.

At least as far as rma() goes, you can use the "subset" argument to specify
a list of probesets to restrict to for all calculations (ie the other
probesets and their probe intensities are entirely ignored).
