Hi Mark, I looked at their customCDF file, I feel it would be easier to use their CDF file and modify the transcript annotation and probe sequence files than to modify the Affy CDF file. However, they provide CDF files to both genes (ENSG) and transcripts (ENST).
Could you tell me whether it make more sense to use CDF for ENSG or CDF for ENST for alternative splicing analysis with exon arrary by FirmaGene ?
