Since cDNA microarray experiments can monitor expression levels for thousands of genes simultaneously, the experimental designs and their analyzing methods are very important for successful analysis of microarray data. The loop design is discussed for selecting differentially expressed genes among several treatments and the analysis of variance method is introduced to normalize microarray data and provide estimates of the interesting quantities. MA-ANOVA is used to illustrate this method on a recently collected loop designed microarray data at Cancer Metastasis Research Center, Yonsei University.
