Table 3 Effect of pre-normalization to correct spatial bias prior to applying popLowess

From: Normalization of array-CGH data: influence of copy number imbalances

  1. Standard deviation of medians of M from pin-tip blocks. Standard deviation is calculated before normalization* and after normalization using popLowess alone** or together with a pre-normalization step. Applied pre-normalization steps include either block-based Median*** or block-based Lowess****.
