You can get the cdf using biocLite().


There is no porcine annotation package, so you can do one of two things. 
First, you could use AnnBuilder to create your own annotation package. I 
haven't played with that package in a year or more, so I don't know how 
difficult that might be. In the past it was not straighforward to create 
packages for species other than human, mouse, and rat. Nianhua would 
know better than I.

Second, you could use the biomaRt package to annotate your data. You can 
either use biomaRt interactively to annotate a set of probesets, or you 
can use the functions in the affycoretools package that are designed to 
create HTML documents with annotation links.
