Sample text

Each oligonucleotide probe contains a sequence 8 Batch Effects and Noise in Microarray Experiments of 50 nucleotides for the gene being interrogated and a sequence of 20 nucleotides for determining the bead position on the array. The oligonucleotides, which are covalently attached to silica beads, are pooled and placed onto a substrate with etched wells. The beads within each pool randomly find individual wells on the substrate to sit. Due to the randomness of the distribution of probes on the microarray, each array created has a different distribution pattern and number of oligonucleotide probes.

Methods incorporating biotinylated nucleotides during the amplification process followed by staining with avidin conjugated fluorescently labeled antibody (Ab) have also been used to label samples. The method used to label samples can have an effect on measured signals (Lynch et al. 2006). If the labeling efficiency is high and too many dye molecules are incorporated such that they are close enough to quench each other, the measured signal may actually decrease instead of increase. The quenching of the cyanine dyes, Cy3 and Cy5, is nonlinear and the phenomenon will systematically bias calculated expression levels (’t Hoen et al.

Any optimization of the measurement process leads to a minimization of the measurement error and ultimately to a higher precision of the measurement result. Measures to improve the precision include repeated measurement of the same sample, standardization of the measurement process, and automation. 3 Biological Variation Biological variation is another source of variability. It is a fundamental characteristic of living beings that they exhibit biological variations between and within species which are essential for development and evolution.
