dear mailing list, I tried to read the demo FCS files from FlowJo's basic tutorial ( http://www.flowjo.com/home/tutorial.html) using the read.FCS function, but I always get the following error message: > Test <- read.FCS( "Sample 2.fcs" ) Error in readFCSdata(con, offsets, txt, transformation, which.lines, scale, : Don't know how to deal with bitwidth 9 I would be grateful for any suggestions, or some hints whether this is a problem in the function, or of the data files. bests, jo my sessionInfo: > sessionInfo() R version 2.11.1 (2010-05-31) i386-apple-darwin9.8.0 locale: [1] en_US.UTF-8/en_US.UTF-8/C/C/en_US.UTF-8/en_US.UTF-8 attached base packages: [1] tools stats graphics grDevices utils datasets methods [8] base other attached packages: [1] flowCore_1.14.1 rrcov_1.0-01 pcaPP_1.8-1 mvtnorm_0.9-92 [5] robustbase_0.5-0-1 Biobase_2.8.0 loaded via a namespace (and not attached): [1] feature_1.2.4 graph_1.26.0 ks_1.6.13 MASS_7.3-6 stats4_2.11.1 -- Johannes Rainer, PhD Applied Bioinformatics Group, Division Molecular Pathophysiology, Biocenter, Medical University Innsbruck, Fritz-Pregl-Str 3/IV, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria and Tyrolean Cancer Research Institute Innrain 66, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria Tel.: +43 512 570485 13 Email: johannes.rainer@i-med.ac.at johannes.rainer@tcri.at URL: http://bioinfo.i-med.ac.at [[alternative HTML version deleted]]

Hi Johannes, This appears to be a problem in the read.FCS function. Your demo FCS files are using a bit width of 9 to represent a parameter. So far we haven?t encountered files using an odd number of bits to represent a parameter. However this appears to be valid as per the FCS standards. I will try to put in a fix for this over the next couple of days.
