[BioC] objective criterion for identification of outlying arrays by pca

Dear Bioconductor List,

	Does anyone know of an objective criterion for the identification of  
outlying arrays
by pca?

	I usually do this subjectively. However the experimental investigator  
whom I am helping
has a different subjective sense than I do, so that I wonder if there  
is a hard-and-fast criterion.

Thanks and best wishes,

I am a Bayesian. When I see a multiple-choice question on a test and I  
know the answer I say "eeney-meaney-miney-moe".
