HCS-Tools for KNIME version 3.1.200.v201807180901 by Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG)
Each plate will be normalized by applying the B score. The B score algorithm uses an iterative 'median polish' procedure.
In brief, the algorithm uses robust plate, row and column estimates to eliminate plate, row and column position biases that result e.g. from egde effects.
