Could someone please clarify some points about RMA normalization by
confirming or correcting my summary below:
1) The background correction uses only the PM probes. Essentially,
it looks for the probes below peak of the PM probe distribution, and
uses these to estimate the parameters of the mixture model.
2) The quantile normalization is done on the background corrected PM probes.
Thanks. I did not find the details spelled out in the papers.
