I am trying to process GEO series, like GSE36411 data (Illumina data) using lumi package and limma package.

I am getting following following error for above mentioned series and for many such series.

> <- read.ilmn(files="GSE36411_non-normalized.txt")
Reading file GSE36411_non-normalized.txt ... ...
Error in readGenericHeader(fname, columns = expr, sep = sep) : 
  Specified column headings not found in file
> abc1 <- lumiR("GSE36411_non-normalized.txt", lib.mapping = 'lumiHumanIDMapping')
Error in gregexpr("\t", dataLine1)[[1]] : subscript out of bounds


Can anyone suggest me the reason for this and how can I solve such issue. or there is any such package is available by which i can process such type of files of Illumina data.

It works fine for me:

x <- read.ilmn("GSE36411_non-normalized.txt", probeid="ID_REF", expr="GSM")
y <- neqc(x)

The data file has been edited and no longer has standard Illumina column headings, so you have to tell read.ilmn how to recognize the probeid column and the expression columns.

Thank You Gordon Smyth. It works for me now, earlier I was missing this expr="GSM".
