Microarray technology is now widely available and is being applied to address increasingly complex scientific questions. Consequently, there is a greater demand for statistical assessment of the conclusions drawn from microarray experiments. This review discusses fundamental issues of how to design an experiment to ensure that the resulting data are amenable to statistical analysis. The discussion focuses on two-color spotted cDNA microarrays, but many of the same issues apply to single-color… Expand

We examine experimental design issues arising with gene expression microarray technology. Microarray experiments have multiple sources of variation, and experimental plans should ensure that effectsExpand
Design of studies using DNA microarrays
TLDR
This work reviews several types of objectives of studies using DNA microarrays and addresses issues such as selection of samples, levels of replication needed, allocation of samples to dyes and arrays, sample size considerations, and analysis strategies. Expand
Microarray data normalization and transformation
TLDR
This review focuses on the much more mundane but indispensable tasks of 'normalizing' data from individual hybridizations to make meaningful comparisons of expression levels, and of 'transforming' them to select genes for further analysis and data mining. Expand
Analysis of Variance for Gene Expression Microarray Data
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ANOVA methods can be used to normalize microarray data and provide estimates of changes in gene expression that are corrected for potential confounding effects and establishes a framework for the general analysis and interpretation of micro array data. Expand

Assessing Gene Significance from cDNA Microarray Expression Data via Mixed Models
TLDR
A statistical approach is presented that allows direct control over the percentage of false positives in such a list of differentially expressed genes and, under certain reasonable assumptions, improves on existing methods with respect to the percentages of false negatives. Expand
Importance of replication in microarray gene expression studies: statistical methods and evidence from repetitive cDNA hybridizations.
TLDR
It is concluded that designing experiments with replications will greatly reduce misclassification rates and it is recommended that at least three replicates be used in designing experiments by using cDNA microarrays, particularly when gene expression data from single specimens are being analyzed.
