Good evening, I'm new to R and Affymetrix data analysis. I'd truly appreciate it if someone could give me some pointers as to how to proceed. I really am not sure what I'm doing wrong. (a) performed the ReadAffy() steps, and created expression sets of my data in both MAS5 (esetmas) and RMA format. (the magnitude difference is quite startling) (b) Used genefilter to perform some simple filtering. f1<-kOverA(4,150) ffun<-filterfun(f1) whichmas<-genefilter(exprs(esetmas),ffun) exprData <- exprs(esetmas) filterData <- exprData[whichmas,] (c) I'm not sure how to perform the ideal form of unsupervised clustering and how best to view those results as plots. hc<-hclust(dist(filterData),"ave") Plot(hc) All I see is some very skewed looking data, with lots of the AFFX genes still present. I've tried running the GeneSOM function, but I don't quite understand the output. Thank you!!
