We present a practical guide to some of the issues involved in comparing or integrating different microarray studies. We discuss the influence that various factors have on the agreement between studies, such as different technologies and platforms, statistical analysis criteria, protocols, and lab variability. We discuss methods to carry out or refine such comparisons, and detail several, common pitfalls to avoid. Finally, we illustrate these ideas with an example case.
