Comparison and integration of expression data derived from diverse microarray platforms is challenging. Factors affecting cross-platform comparison of microarray data include the choice of normalization method used, annotation differences, presence of splice variants, RNA degradation and probe distance from 3 ’ end. A thorough evaluation of two commercial microarray platforms to determine an appropriate methodology for making cross-platform correlations is described here. 1
