After scanning the microarray chip we get RAW data with different formats depending on the type of microarray used. However, these RAW data files can be normalized and processed to generate gene expression data matrix.
I've been trying to figure out what exactly is the result of the processed data and what is the format of that data. As I've seen so far, there's no specific format for processed data. Of course most of them agree that columns represent experiments and rows represent genes, but the additional information at the top, they're usually different but I'm not sure based on what. Can anyone suggest me with the most common used formats? Is there any additional information to that processed data file in case I wanted to apply classification on it?
