Hi, I have a beginners type question. I see that in simpleaffy one tells bioconductor what the samples represent through having a tab deliminated covdesc file in the same folder as the .cel files. Other packages use phenoData which I gather is seen with the pData(eset) command, how does one make a phenoData file and where is it kept? thanks simon

If you look in the Biobase vignette, there is a section that explains how to make a phenoData object by hand. Basically what you need is a data.frame containing the phenodata information, and a list corresponding to the labels you want for the phenoData object. Alternatively, you can use widgets to make the phenoData object as part of reading in your cel files. dat <- ReadAffy(widget=TRUE) HTH, Jim James W.

On my system the widget has no scroll bars which means when entering the covariance that I cannot enter all 44 CEL files. Is the lack of scroll bars a feature or a problem with my setup? Iam using R1.9 beta and OSX10.3. thanks, Simon
