Using this plug-in base-users can merge together bioassays by grouping them according to annotation types or syntactical differences in the name. There are four different method for calculating the new values. They differ in what kind of mean they are using (arithmetic or geometric) and if they are merging on ratio or intensity.
For each group the parents are saved so the link to the raw data is preserved. Annotations for the bioassays are saved if sample1 is the same for each assay in each group.
If you have merged assays in a group, BASE 1.2.10 will have difficulties to export data Merged on reporter from the parents RawBioAssays. If you for instance export '[Raw] Spot diameter' for a merged assay, each reporter might be associated with values from several RawBioAssays but only one such value will be exported. This is a known limitation of base 1.2.10 but it will not be fix in future versions.
