Hi All, I have a question about analyzing aCGH data with huge number of probes on a single chromosome. We have a set of customized NimbleGen aCGH human sample data. Each sample has 40 million probes. Even a single chromosome has >3M probes. I tried some R-based and Matlab-based aCGH analysis software to analyze just a single chromosome in a single sample using our supercomputer, but no hopes! Some software just show error messages (works fine for small data sets) and some software can not complete the analysis even after 1-2 days CPU time. I am wondering whether any people in the list have experience in analyzing the aCGH data with such a scale. If you have, can you share some your experience with me? Will it be a good idea to first divide the chromosome into some small pieces (say each pieice has 10,000 probes) and then run the algorithm on each piece of the chromosome? Thanks you!

What are the goals of the analysis? What types of samples (cancer, comparative genomics, normal DNA)? And what methods have you tried? Sean
