Hi, I used my raw data for batch correction using Combat package. It worked well before normalization. However after normalization of batch corrected data, the correction is removed and my data showed clustering based on batch processed.

Could anyone please tell me if I have to normalize data before batch correction? Is it correct to use batch corrected data for normalization and further downstream processing?

Let me know if my question is not correct.

Thank you

There are several alternative ways (or workflows) to deal with batch correction. I am assuming that you are using the bioconductor package sva. There are several examples in the vignette explaining how to analyze the data, in particular sections 7 and 8. Personally, I preprocess/normalize the data first, then include the batch information as a variable in the model (typically linear model with limma package).
