Dear List Members: I asked a question of Christian Stratowa, maintainer of the xps package, on how to get raw intensity values for exon arrays along with some other meta information using his package. My question and his very helpful reply are below.

Here is what you need to do to get the columns you mention: 3) raw intensity value: You can get the CEL-file intensities for (x,y)-coordinates using: export(data.exon, treetype="cel", varlist = "fInten", outfile="Exon_int_cel.txt") However, for 75 CEL-files the exported file will be pretty large, so I suggest to export subsets:, treename=c("BreastA","BreastB"), varlist = "fInten", outfile="Exon_BreastAB_int_cel.txt") You can even create a data.frame in R using: cel <-, treename=c("BreastA","BreastB"), varlist = "fInten", outfile="Exon_BreastAB_int_cel.txt", as.dataframe=T) head(cel) 1) probe_id: The probe_id for (x,y) can be obtained by exporting: export(scheme.exon, treetype="cxy", outfile="HuExon_cxy.txt") However, currently the probe_id for exon arrays can be calculated from (x,y): probe_id = x + ncol * y + 1 where ncol is the number of columns of the array, i.e. for exon array ncol=2560 2) genomic sequence: I am not sure what you mean with "genomic sequence", but the probe sequences can be obtained by exporting: export(scheme.exon, treetype="prb", outfile="HuExon_prb.txt") which gives you the probe sequence at (x,y) 4) probeset_id: You can get the probeset_id by exporting: export(scheme.exon, treetype="pbs", outfile="HuExon_pbs.txt") The first column will contain an internal UNIT_ID followed by the probeset_id. The internal UNIT_ID corresponds to the internal ProbeSetID of file "HuExon_pbs.txt". Alternatively, you get the internal UNIT_ID for (x,y) by exporting: export(scheme.exon, treetype="scm", outfile="HuExon_scm.txt") Now, you need to combine the data from these files in order to get the matrix you want. I know that this seems to be complex, but sadly the exon array has a very complex structure. BTW, every export method has the possibility to import the data.frame directly into R: dataframe <- export(object, ..., as.dataframe=T) Please let me know if you succeeded with this info.
