RNA quality and hybridization performance. The RIN number, a measure of RNA quality, ranged from 2.7-8.6 in the heart samples. The ROC AUC, a hybridization quality metric, ranged from 0.80 to 0.90, which is within the parameters suggested by Affymetrix. All samples showed robust hybridization irrespective of their RIN values (r2 = 0.27).
