There are RAW Data Files and a Normalized Series Matrix File in GEO. By mapping
ID_REFs in normalized series matrix to
IDs in platform, I can get gene symbols (Symbol v12) for any probe.
But, I need to construct a Non-Normalized Series Matrix and don't know how to get
ID_REF values (so gene symbols) for probes in raw data. Probes are not ordered by
ID_REFs in raw datasets as it is in the normalized series matrix.
A piece of raw data:
ID_REF of the
6th row is not equal to
6. So, when I directly use row numbers as
ID_REF, the gene symbol appears as
MAR6, but it is actually
HPRT1. I don't know what are these
IDs stand for in raw data or can they be used to get
Any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks!
