Dear Karthikuttan,

I want to know if mathematics comes with a built-in tool that can accept the above mentioned TIFF image and work on it. If Mathematica can accept the TIFF image, does it also accepts the Grid information file for the TIFF microarray image so that it can find out XV co-ordinates etc.? IF so where can I get the grid info file for my Agilent microarray chip?

Is it going to be a text file containing probe intensity values? If yes, can I import this output file from Mathematics into GeneSpring?

But, pardon me, because these things have been eating my head for a long time and still I could not figure out  a way to analyze the Agilent TIFF file. AFE is of course an options, but I would  like to get more significant results by putting more than one software.

Do you think you could share your files with us? I would be happy to
put out a solution for your needs. Most probably we won't run into
much troubles, but I'd rather make sure we come up with a working
example at once.
