Hi all

I am in the process of analysing microarray ChIP data generated several years ago. I want to use the affy package for R. However, in order to load the CEL files and proceed with the analysis, I need the pombe annotation file which comes under the name of Sp20b_M_v04.cdf. I have looked everywhere for this file but I am unable to locate it. Is anyone in possession of this file or know where I can download it from? Thank you in advance.

What about GEO? Is this file here as attachment what you need?

Thank you for your response. I am not sure at this point whether that's the right file or if there's something else wrong. I keep getting the same error still. I load affy and then try to normalise the Data. The working directory is set to a folder containing the CEL and CDF file I downloaded from GEO. The error I am getting reads as follows:

eset <- rma(Data)

Error in getCdfInfo(object) : Could not obtain CDF environment, problems encountered: Specified environment does not contain Sp20b_M_v04 Library - package sp20bmv04cdf not installed Bioconductor - sp20bmv04cdf not available

Any ideas on what the issue is? Thanks

Maybe install the cdf file first? Did you follow this tutorial?
