Hello everyone!

I am working on Affymetrix chips (CytoScan 750K and HD) and I would like to know if there's any way to get FASTA from the files I get when I scan the arrays which are .CEL and .DAT files.

Thank you all in advance!

No. The microarray contains no sequence data. What are you trying to do?

You may get the consensus sequence of the probe from its annotation file or fasta file. For example: For Affymetrix Mouse Genome 430 2.0 Array or GPL1261, you may find its files here. I am not sure about Illumina or Agilent platforms but there might be a webiste/db for these informations. However, I am curious to know what is the goal of your study.

Hello again and thank you both for your answers!

It's a very long story but I'm stuck with a project which involves the dmet and cytoscan affymetrix arrays and PGX. I'm curious to see if there's is any way I can get any amount of PGx info from the cytoscan platform. Like if you can get all the info you get from running a cytoscan array plus PGx info. My guess is that there is not, because they are very different platfroms I'm just trying to see if there's anything I can do related to PGx with these two platforms in combination...

Hope that's not too confusing haha

Any ideas are welcome and thank you again :)

What is a PGX? Google says PGX is a drug?

It's pharmacogenomics :)
