I think I saw a related post not too long ago in the bioconductor list.

I am not familiar enough with the exprSet to know if everything they include could be dumped in a flat file (sometimes objects can be put in files through serialization).

I would be in favor of incitating users to learn a bit of R too... having to solve, or ask how to do, things like 'how do I write expression values from an instance of exprSet in a file ?' appears to me like a good way to do it....

comments ?
