A within array normalization method that substantially reduces the technical variability between the probe types whilst maintaining the important biological differences. The SWAN method makes the assumption that the number of CpGs within the 50 bp probe sequence reflects the underlying biology of the region being interrogated. Hence, the overall distribution of intensities of probes with the same number of CpGs in the probe body should be the same. The method then uses a subset quantile normalization approach to adjust the intensities of the probes on the arrays.
