Area sensitive setting

Question: 

When I cluster gel patterns using a band-based coefficient, what value is used when I select "Area sensitive"? What is the function of the 'Comparative Quantification' settings in the Fingerprint type window?

Answer: 

The relative area is used, obtained by Gaussian deconvolution. This means that, if you change the Gaussian curve for a band in step 4 of the gel processing window, the similarity based on an area sensitive coefficient will be influenced.

The Settings > Comparative quantification menu in the Fingerprint type window allows you to use different band intensity measures in the Bands matching analysis. When you perform a band matching in the Comparison window, a band matching table can be obtained in a composite dataset that contains this fingerprint type. The values shown and used in this table depend on the choice you made in the Comparative quantification settings, which can be one-dimensional: Band height, Band surface, Relative band surface, or two-dimensional: Volume, Relative volume, or Concentration.
