I started using ArrayExpress today to read a processed data from a recent study -

I used the example provided in the documentation of getAE() to retrieve and load the data of my interest.

mexp1422 = getAE("E-MEXP-1422", type = "full")
## Build a an ExpressionSet from the processed data
cnames = getcolproc(mexp1422)
MEXP1422proc = procset(mexp1422, cnames[2])

I am very puzzled why procset() requires exactly one column name. This totally doesn't make sense. In addition, it is very slow for my dataset (19000 single cells). I would like to improve speed by rewriting the code that reads the processed data. I want to use data.table in a way that I suggest here: (line 78). For that, I need to know why procset() requires exactly one column name and whether I can remove this condition.

Thank you,
