Maternal blood contamination of collected cord blood can be identified using DNA methylation at three CpGs

PMCID: 5526324
PMID: 28770015
DOI: 10.1186/s13148-017-0370-2

[…] probes with detection p values above 0.05, probes with less than three beads contributing to signal, and previously identified cross-reacting probes, for a total of 421,993 probes remaining []. quantro analysis indicated that quantile normalization was allowable, so we first normalized with the lumi quantile method, then with swan for probe type correction []. finally, we used combat […]


A cross package Bioconductor workflow for analysing methylation array data

PMCID: 4916993
PMID: 27347385
DOI: 10.5256/f1000research.9514.r14245

[…] where you do not expect global differences between your samples, for example a single tissue. further discussion on appropriate choice of normalisation can be found in ( ), and the accompanying quantro package includes data-driven tests for the assumptions of quantile normalisation. as we are comparing different blood cell types, which are globally relatively similar, we will apply […]


Cross platform normalization of microarray and RNA seq data for machine learning applications

PMCID: 4736986
PMID: 26844019
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.1621

[…] (). the distribution of expression values for each condition in the simulated data is shown with violin plots (), which display an appreciable level of variability both within and between classes. quantro is a recently developed method for generating an f-score that represents the ratio of the within class variability to between class variability in the data () and is available as a package […]


Novel Na2Mo4O13/α MoO3 hybrid material as highly efficient CWAO catalyst for dye degradation at ambient conditions

PMCID: 4210944
PMID: 25348943
DOI: 10.1038/srep06797

[…] from the n2 adsorption and desorption isotherms at 77 k collected from an asap 2020 physisorption analyzer (micromeritics). x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (xps) was carried out using a phi quantro sxm analyzer to analyze the chemical state of surface elements for the catalysts. the kinetic energies of photoelectrons were measured using a hemispherical electrostatic analyzer working […]


Band offsets of non polar A plane GaN/AlN and AlN/GaN heterostructures measured by X ray photoemission spectroscopy

PMCID: 4167304
PMID: 25258600
DOI: 10.1186/1556-276X-9-470

[…] were nitridized for 5 min at 1,000°c under a mixed gas of h2 and nh3. the growth temperature of gan and aln layer was 1,000°c and 1,100°c, respectively. the xps measurements were performed on a phi quantro sxm instrument (physical electronics, inc., chanhassen, mn, usa) with al kα radiation (hν = 1,486.6 ev) at a pressure lower than 2 × 10−9 torr. charged displacement was calibrated by c 1 s […]
