Sometimes you may wish to use a CDF file obtained from somewhere (besides the default ones provided through BioConductor). This tutorial is not about how to make such a CDF. But, merely about how to install it and use it with existing Bioconductor packages such as affy and rma.

#Create a package for downloaded CDF
#This assumes you have already downloaded or created a CDF and you just want to use it in Bioconductor with (for example) ReadAffy
#For example suppose you wanted to use a specific CDF from the Affy web site:

#Note, this example is purely for illustration. There is no real need to create a package for HuGene-1_0-st-v1
#This chip is already supported by BioConductor and can be loaded with 
#library(hugene10stv1cdf)   #cdfname="hugene10stv1"

#Install package for making cdf packages

#Create CDF package in temporary directory 
pkgpath <- tempdir()
make.cdf.package("HuGene-1_0-st-v1.r3.cdf", cdf.path="/Users/ogriffit/Downloads/HuGene-1_0-st-v1.r3.unsupported-cdf", compress=FALSE, species = "Homo_sapiens", package.path = pkgpath)

#Install that package at a terminal using 'pkgpath' from above
#R CMD INSTALL /var/folders/8j/bqry255x52q6_dhyw22w6sq80000gn/T//Rtmppd9YEK/hugene10stv1.r3cdf

#Then, load it for use here

#Download a CEL file package for testing purposes

#Unpack the CEL files
untar("GSE27447/GSE27447_RAW.tar", exdir="data")
cels = list.files("data/", pattern = "CEL")
sapply(paste("data", cels, sep="/"), gunzip)
cels = list.files("data/", pattern = "CEL")

raw.data=ReadAffy(verbose=TRUE, filenames=cels, cdfname="hugene10stv1.r3cdf") #Custom installed CDF

#You can now go on to whatever normalizing and analysis you wish with the data using your custom CDF package
#perform RMA normalization 

#Get the important stuff out of the data - the expression estimates for each array

I think one more bioconductor package that also needs to be installed is `s4vector` http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/S4Vectors.html
