Hi,
I have written some functions for making your own cdf environment for one of
my collegues who is interested in this. In one function, you have to input a
list. Each element of this list has to be a gene, and each of this elements
must consist of a vector of the perfect match IDs you are interested in. So
this list should look something like this
$ Gene1
[1] 12123 1412414 12231 4421233
$ Gene2
[1] 342352 12312 1234112 412211
and so on, where 12123, 1412414, ... are the PM IDs. Using this list as your
argument you will get a cdf environment that contains only the probe sets
specified in this list, and only the probe pairs of the probe sets in this
list that correspond to the PM IDs (you get both PMs and MMs corresponding
to the PM ID).
Would this function solve your problem?
Best,
Holger
