Hi, I am new to microarray analysis and have been trying to use marray (in R 2.1.0) to read in data from GenePix (.gpr) files, but it hasn't worked... There are 6 .gpr files (e.g. samcellINF8a.gpr as below), the sample description .txt file and a .gal file in my directory (folder containing files is called Samsfish). I've been trying to copy the example in the vignette entittled "Quick Start Guide for marray". It worked fine up until the following line of code: > data <- read.GenePix(targets=SamsfishTargets) ...which gives me this error message: Error in file(con, "r") : unable to open connection In addition: Warning message: cannot open file './samcellINF8a.gpr' (or variations on a theme) Do you know what this means? What can I do about it? Many thanks, Amy ------------------------------------------- Amy Mikhail Research student University of Aberdeen Zoology Building Tillydrone Avenue Aberdeen AB24 2TZ Scotland Email: a.mikhail at abdn.ac.uk Phone: 00-44-1224-272880 (lab)

Hi Amy, Did you switch your working directory to the directory containing your gpr files? By default, read.GenePix() is looking for fnames in ".". To switch directory, you can either do: datadir <- system.file("Samsfish", package = "marray") setwd(datadir) data <- read.GenePix(fnames="samcellINF11a.gpr") or data <- read.GenePix(fnames="samcellINF11a.gpr", path=datadir) I hope this will help, Agnes -----Original Message----- From: bioconductor-bounces@stat.math.ethz.ch [mailto:bioconductor-bounces at stat.math.ethz.ch] On Behalf Of Amy Mikhail Sent: Wednesday, June 29, 2005 1:22 PM To: bioconductor at stat.math.ethz.ch Subject: Re: [BioC] read.GenePix not opening connection Hi, Unfortunately there are more error messages; > data <- read.GenePix(fnames=SamsfishTargets$FileName) Error in file(con, "r") : unable to open connection In addition: Warning message: cannot open file './NA' and for the next one... > data <- read.GenePix(fnames="samcellINF11a.gpr") Error in file(con, "r") : unable to open connection In addition: Warning message: cannot open file './samcellINF11a.gpr' Cheers, Amy.

Please post all your code, including the contents of whatever file you read into SamsfishTargets.

Hi, Yet another error message... > data <- read.GenePix(fnames="samcellINF11a.gpr", + path="C:\\full\\path\\to\\my\\files\\") Error in file(con, "r") : unable to open connection In addition: Warning message: cannot open file 'C:\full\path\to\my\files\/samcellINF11a.gpr' Any ideas?

Hi, Forgive my ignorance but what is R(D) Com software? Is that a package?
