Can someone help me on normalization of microarray. My output before using a limma packages are below. However, I don't know how to perform using normalizeWithinArrays() if the class of the data is a matrix format. Also, what command I should use to find out how many genes going up in siMLL2 at padj < 0.1 and abs(logFC)>1?

Those values are already normalized. You can even analyze them directly from GEO (click on the GEO2R link on GEO), which can also show you the script it uses. Anyway, just download the .CEL files if you want to analyze things yourself. You have MUCH better control of things that way.

Thanks Ryan. How do I know if the data is already normalized? Do you know if there is a command after

"topTable(ebfit,number=50,coef=1)" that I can use to analyze the amount of genes going up in siMLL2 at padj < 0.1 and abs(logFC)>1?

I'm guessing that you downloaded the series matrix file and clicking on one of the individual samples would show you that the values are already normalized (it explicitly says that). topTable returns a dataframe, so just with(tt, which(padj<0.1 & abs(logFC)>1)) where tt is the output from topTable.
