Thanks for the clarification. Yes, I was confused which one of the options in
Figure 5 of the article were implemented in the tilingArray packages.
What I meant by the difference in log bases is :
refSig = rowMeans(log2(exprs(reference)[pm, , drop = FALSE]))
ybg[, j] = tapply(log(exprs(x)[background, j], 2), strata, genefilter::shorth,
tie.action = "min")
?log says the default base is e. So is there a mathematical reason to use base
2 for reference probes, and base e for background probes ?
