Hi all,

I am attempting to use the xps package to perform background correction and summarization (at the probeset level) on Affymetrix DroGene 1.1 ST arrays, but I am encountering an error right away when attempting to build a scheme file for these arrays as 'exon' arrays ie. using both the probeset and transcript annotations.

I am guessing that the issue may involve changes in the annotation files for na36 that are producing some sort of mismatch with the available PGF and CLF files, but I am not savvy enough with these formats to find the issue. Here's what the error looks like:

The mention of 167 affx controls vs. 75 makes me think that maybe something in the pgf/clf files is indicating there are also affx->ercc spike-in controls, which I think are present in the HuGeneST arrays (where there are 167 affx controls), but these are not present in the DroGene annotation files. I don't think they are actually present on the DroGene arrays either, though it would be nice if they were. Any ideas how to resolve this problem and successfully build a DroGeneST scheme? Do I somehow have to cook up a new pgf or clf?

Thanks!

Chris

Hi Chris,

This is an old problem of Affymetrix. Sometimes they do not add all AFFX controls to the
annotation files or had controls in the annotation files which were missing in the pgf-file. 
Usually I have asked Affymetrix DevNet to add the controls.

I will check my old records to see if there is a possibility to add/remove controls,
and will let you know.

Best regards,
Christian

P.S.:
1, This time I will not contact Affymetrix, however, feel free to ask them to correct the
annotation files.

2, Since you are using a Mac, I suggest that you download "Nedit" as editor. It works even
on High Sierra, and allows to add syntax highlighting for R.
The main advantage of Nedit is that you can open the PGF-files and annotation files within
seconds and scroll interactively, e.g. to delete types "rescue" and "reporter".
The only thing  to do is to add the following lines to '.xinitrc':
export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/X11/lib/flat_namespace
/Applications/nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/nedit -geometry +60+60 &

Thank you so much Christian! Your Perl script and additional edits worked perfectly and the resulting annotation files built a scheme just as it should. I appreciate getting such a prompt and helpful reply, great technical support on the package! Now I can get into trying out the tasks I am planning with xps.

Hi Chris,

NOTE: 
My reply seems to be tooo long, only 5000 characters are allowed, so I divide my answer into
different parts!!

PART 1:

As I have already mentioned the missing AFFY controls in the probeset and transcript annotation
files are an old problem. In 2012 it took me many weeks until Affymetrix DevNet has finally
upgraded the HuGene-2_0-st and HuGene-2_1-st arrays. Since a user at that time did need the
correct HuGene-2_1-st annotation files, I had created a Perl-script, which does correct them, see:
https://www.stat.math.ethz.ch/pipermail/bioconductor/2012-August/047755.html

You can use this perl-script (shown below), which I have updated for your DroGene-1_1-st arrays, 
which adds the missing AFFX probesets and creates the corrected annotation files:
- DroGene-1_1-st-v1.na36.dm3.probeset.corr.csv
- DroGene-1_1-st-v1.na36.dm3.transcript.corr.csv
In this script you need only change the directories of the input/output file names.


However, these files are not yet ready for use since Affymetrix has added two probeset types,
which are not present in the PGF-file, i.e. types:
- "rescue"
- "reporter"
In my mail to DevNet from 2013/09/23 I had mentioned:
Neither the annotation files nor the mps/ps files should contain probesets which are not listed in the PGF-file!!

For this reason you need to delete the following lines from the corrected annotation files:

1, in "DroGene-1_1-st-v1.na36.dm3.probeset.corr.csv":
- type "rescue":    delete lines 147113 - 174175
- type "reporter":  delete remaining lines 176077 - 176158

2, in "DroGene-1_1-st-v1.na36.dm3.transcript.corr.csv":
- type "rescue":    delete lines 47985 - 48047
- type "reporter":  delete remaining lines 50328 - 50409

Now you are finally ready to use the corrected annotation files.

NOTE: the Part 2 will contain my code.

Best regards,
Christian
