  • Comparing detected genes. Coords for probesets of Affy GeneChip Mouse 430 2.0 Array.

    Does anyone know where I can download genomic coordinates (chromosome, strand, start, end) for all probesets of this microarray? I was searching the Affy website for a couple of hours, can't find it. The microarray in question is:

    Affymetrix GeneChip Mouse Genome 430 2.0 Array

    Admittedly this is a very microarray-centric question, but the reason I'm asking is this: I want to check if genes detected by the microarray are also detected by HT-Sequencing (not RNA-Seq actually, but similar).

    I.e. I want to know if genes detected by the microarray have also been detected by the HT-Sequencing. The question is just whether the same genes have been detected or not, NOT whether similar expression levels have been detected.

    From the HT-Sequencing, I have coordinates of sequenced tags. I want to map them to some intermediate (RefSeq) and compare with expression levels from the probesets, which is data that I also have. Because directly comparing sequenced tags against probesets is not very informative I think.

    Suggestions for alternative approaches are also very welcome.

    Thanks.

    With the R/Bioconductor package BiomaRt use this script

    > library(biomaRt)
    > ensembl = useMart("ensembl")
    > ensembl = useMart("ensembl", dataset = "hsapiens_gene_ensembl")
    > affyids <- read.delim("mytextfile.txt", header=F,stringsAsFactors=F)[,1]
    > genelocs <- getBM(attributes = c("chromosome_name", "start_position",
    "end_position", "strand"), filters = "affy_hg_u133_plus_2", values = affyids, mart = ensembl)
    #### you can also use "affy_hg_u133_plus_2", "hgnc_symbol" to get affy probe set and gene symbol. "mytextfile.txt" is a list of Affy probe sets and you need to change the filter to your gene chip.

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
