affxparser: Affymetrix File Parsing SDK

Package for parsing Affymetrix files (CDF, CEL, CHP, BPMAP, BAR). It provides methods for fast and memory efficient parsing of Affymetrix files using the Affymetrix' Fusion SDK. Both ASCII- and binary-based files are supported. Currently, there are methods for reading chip definition file (CDF) and a cell intensity file (CEL). These files can be read either in full or in part. For example, probe signals from a few probesets can be extracted very quickly from a set of CEL files into a convenient list structure.
