  1. The top half of the table shows average log-signal variances of oligonucleotide array replicates (T-cell control, HIV-infected) and cDNA array replicates (glnA.Cy3 and tnrA.Cy3 controls, glnA.Cy5 and tnrA.Cy5 mutants) before normalization (pre), after log-signal scaling (scaled), global lowess (lowess), scaled print-tip lowess (lowess-tip), global and tip scaled qspline (qspline, qspline-tip) and spatial gradient normalization (spatial). The percent decrease relative to prenormalized variance is also listed for each method in the lower half of the table.
