The original questioin I got was about the bimodal distribution of gcrma
result from probe intensities with unimodel distribution. My answer was
that the "change" was not necessarily surprising.

For example , when you have "true log signal" from a bimodal distribution
# You will see this has two peaks
#if the background, log(non-specific binding) come from 
#then when you plot the histogram of convolution in log scale,
#you see only one peak, and this would be "before gcrma".
