AffyMAPSDetector -- Affymetrix MicroArray Probe SNP Detector

What you can do:
A software tool to characterize Affymetrix GeneChip expression arrays with respect to SNPs.
  • AffyMAPSDetector can be used to describe any Affymetrix expression GeneChip with respect to SNPs.
  • Output from this tool characterizes SNP-containing probes on GeneChip microarrays, thus improving our understanding of factors contributing to expression measurements.
  • The pattern of SNP binding examined so far indicates distinct behavior of the SNP-containing probes and has the potential to help us identify new SNPs.
  • Knowing which probes contain SNPs provides flexibility in determining whether to include or exclude them from gene-expression intensity calculations; selected sets of SNP-containing probes produce sample-unique signatures.
