For meta-analysis work, I would like to combine two rice GEO series( GSE27988 and GSE27856 ) where each series analyze multiple anatomical tissue related expression profiles.To eliminate batch effect, I'm not sure whether I can use limma removeBatchEffect function as given below. Similar posts I see related to batch effect are generally control vs treatment.


batch <- c("A","A","A",... "B","B","B")  # 24 samples in batch A and 14 samples in batch B
corrected<- removeBatchEffect(data, batch)

i'd rather suggest BatchQC for batch effect removal + visualization + statistics
