i dont think there is a package. below is a function i wrote for some 
folks here at jhu. you need the makecdfenv and affy packages for it to 
run. you need the TAG3 CDF and a TAG3info txt file with whats up and whats 
if you, or anybody out there, 
wants to turn this into 
a formal package, let me know.
