Normalisation of data to minimise the impact of technical variation on comparative sample analysis is often carried out. Using SELDI data as a model, we have examined the effects of normalisation by TIC which is commonly used for MS data. Significant intergroup differences in normalisation factor were found for serum profiles which could not be explained by(More)
BACKGROUND Proteomic profiling using mass spectrometry (MS) is one of the most promising methods for the analysis of complex biological samples such as urine, serum and tissue for biomarker discovery. Such experiments are often conducted using MALDI-TOF (matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation time-of-flight) and SELDI-TOF (surface-enhanced laser(More)
Both the meaning and the challenge of``transfer of learning'' are well-expressed in a story told to one of us by a disappointed professor of physics at a nearby college. Among the stock problems explored in the physics course was one like this: ``A ball weighing three kilograms is dropped from the top of a hundred meter tower. How many seconds does it take(More)
