Re: Defining your own chromosome annotations

Sean, I am using Yersinia pestis microarray from TIGR. This chip is constructed from genes from two different strains of Y. pestis, KIM and CO92. It is mainly CO92 (3885 ORFs) but has 944 ORFS from KIM not found in CO92 (and some genes are on main chromosome, and some on virulence plasmids). The GAL file does not contain any genbank IDs. It does contain locus names. The gpr files I have do not contain the locus name, but instead has a name that is just used in the chip I believe. The genbank files for KIM and CO92 contain the locus names, and of course the genbank IDs. (ie In the GPR file the name of a gene is, for example, NTORF3478. In the gal file, the name NTORF3478 has the locus name y3526. Then the genbank file will contain the y3526 gene and have the GID of 1148473) I am not sure if all features in the chip are present in the genbank files. If I wanted to use the KIM chromosome as the reference, however, the genes from CO92 would not be mapped properly. I was just hoping there would be an easy way of having a file that would be something like Name on chip, Contig Name, Start, End Load that into an object, then after running limma, view expression along the chromosome. -Lance ------------------------------- Lance, You probably want to look at the AnnBuilder package, but I don't think it supports bacterial genomes (? for Jianhua). However, what is the annotation that you have for each "gene"? Genbank accession? Refseq? Do you have the chromosome locations? What arrays are you using?

RG$R <- matrix(2^rnorm(8*4*20*20*2), nc=2) RG$G <- matrix(2^rnorm(8*4*20*20*2), nc=2) RG$printer <- list(ngrid.r=8, ngrid.c=4, nspot.r=20, nspot.c=20) RG$printer <- structure(printer, class = "PrintLayout") MA <- normalizeWithinArrays(RG, method = "printtiploess", bc.method="none") design <- rep(1,2) fit <- lmFit(MA, design) fit <- eBayes(fit) topTable(fit, adjust.method="fdr") You can populate exprSets and marrayRaw Class objects the same way using appropriate accessor methods. Marcus Marcus Davy Bioinformatics >>> Guoneng Zhong <> 05/03/05 8:39 AM >>> Hi, I have two-channel image result files that don't have background information, just median and mean intensity readings. But read.maimages requires that I provide Rb, Rf, Gb, Gf values, and I don't have the Rb and Gb values. How do I make the analysis ignore those columns? I am doing a simple lmFit and topTable.

I am crossposting this to R-help and BioC, since it is relevant to both groups. I wrote a wrapper for Entrez search utility (link for this is provided bellow), which can add some new search functionality to existing code in Bioconductor's package 'annotate'*. Entrez search utuility returns a XML document but I have a problem to use URI to retrieve that file, since URI can also contain characters, which should not be there according to I encountered problems with "[" and "]" as well as with space characters. However there might also be a problem with others i.e. reserved characters in URI syntax.

As can be seen from above there is a possibility to handle this special characters and I wonder if this has already been done somewhere? If not I thought on a function fixURLchar, which would replace reserved characters with ther escaped sequences. Any comments, pointers, ... ? from = c(" ", "\"", ",", "#"), to = c("%20", "%22", "%2c", "%23")) *When I'll solve problem I will send my code to 'annotate' maintainer and he can include it at his will in a package.
