+     "The package implements a method for normalising microarray intensities,
+and works for single- and multiple-color arrays.  It can also be used for data
+from other technologies, as long as they have similar format.  The method uses
+a robust variant of the maximum-likelihood estimator for an
+additive-multiplicative error model and affine calibration.  The model
+incorporates data calibration step (a.k.a.  normalization), a model for the
+dependence of the variance on the mean intensity and a variance stabilizing
+data transformation.  Differences between transformed intensities are
+analogous to \"normalized log-ratios\".  However, in contrast to the latter,
+their variance is independent of the mean, and they are usually more sensitive
+and specific in detecting differential transcription.")
