I am trying to analyze data from multiple platforms (different array versions) of the same species. Each platform has its own annotation file, but I can't figure out how to load them separately into MEV. Is there a way to tell MEV to match the spots from the different platforms using the gene name or some other identifier?
Sorry, MeV is designed to handle one platform-annotation combination.
You can open New Multiple Array Viewer for another set of platform-annotation. But still you cannot combine them.
I would suggest you merge you data outside MeV and map all your data to one platform (this is not trivial) then you can load that dataset with its annotation.
Hope it helps!
Thanks for using MeV.
