I have downloaded a database from GEO using getGEO and then converted it into ExpressionSets using GDS2eSet. Now I am trying to normalize it using rma. It gives me error :unable to find an inherited method for function ‘probeNames’ for signature ‘"ExpressionSet". Which function I showed use to normalize the expression set ?

a1<-getGEO('GDS4758',  destdir=".")
eset<- GDS2eSet(a1, do.log2=TRUE)

The platform for GDS4758 is GENE ST array. For ST array normalization 'oligo' package is used. So e.rempel's suggestion below should work. Check this webpage (see "Newer Affymetrix Arrays (Gene ST arrays, etc.")

the error message resembles one in this thread. It looks like you should use different rma function, namely from oligo package. You could try oligo::rma instead of rma (after possible installation of oligo library)

Indeed, for ST arrays, you should use the oligo package, not affy
