Dear colleagues,

We are trying to analyze a group of Affymetrix arrays, but we don’t have
experience. We performed the RMA normalization and after we analyzed with
the algorithm SOM (3x3 Expander), among others.
We observed that some control genes was differentially expressed in 2/12
arrays (cluster in: http://www.divshare.com/download/4105386-853),
and it shoudn't, isn't it?
The QC stats plot (simpleaffy) seemed good
and all parameters indicated by Affymetrix showed results acceptable.

Do you think we have a bug in the experiment?

Should we compare this 2 “different” arrays with the others? Or can we
correct this?

Thanks for your help!
