How do I convert the row names of the intensity value ("1007_s_at" "1053_at" "117_at" "121_at" "1255_g_at") from the HG-U133_Plus_2 Affymetrix Human Genome U133 Plus 2.0 Array to gene names from the official CDF? This there a online tutorial somewhere? Thanks

You can use some web tools, e.g. DAVID Resources Converter.

Hi, kevin. If I have the probe fasta file(http://www.affymetrix.com/Auth/analysis/downloads/data/Rice.probe_fasta.zip), how can I know which probe correspond to which gene? Because each gene correspond to one probe sets, which contain ~24 probes, this makes blast job a bit hard. BTW, I have the correspondence list of one version(version A), using one reference genome. But my genome is some different from this reference genome, just using version A may lose some genes, I want to know if I can make the correspondence of gene name and probe id with my own genome? Is there any tool to do this? Thank you!

Aifu.

Wait, it should be:

  • probe: 25nt sequence that targets a particular part of an exon
  • probe-set: multiple probes that 'tile' across an exon, targeting different parts

Multiple probe-sets, then, form a gene. Note that a probe-set may consist of just a single probe.

I'm not sure what you are aiming to do? - determine that target gene for your probe sequences?

I want to determine the target gene for the probe sequences, with the microarray data in hand, I can do differential expression analysis to find meaningful genes.

You should download the annotation files from Affymetrix and then link these to the probe IDs (I think). I have never analysed rice.

yes, I download one and know the correspondence, but the affymetrix was based on one variety A. Now it is used on another variety B, the correspondence in A variety maynot as same as B, though there are many homologs, B may have new genes such as duplicated genes. Affymetrix may show the signal of these new genes. So I want to know how to produce that correspondence file for B by myself.

I see, you are studying variety B, for which Affymetrix has no microarray?

Sorry for this confusion, I am studying variety B, it do have microarray, but the Affymetrix was design on variety A.

You are limited, therefore, to the probes that are included on the microarray. If you wanted to identify novel transcripts in B, you could do RNA-seq.

Thank you for your suggestion, kevin.
