I have done one color agilent microarray. I am processing my data, but my data showed one miRNA present in more than one place with different value. Could someone please tell me what is the reason for this? Thanks!

It is common to add multiple replicates in miRNA microarrays, if you see the Column and Row values, the spots are in different places.

Thank you JC! Do you know how to combine these spots as one miRNA? Or do we treat them differently?

You use them as technical replicates in your analysis
