We are developing a computational pipeline to use surveys of Affymetrix GeneChips as a discovery tool for unravelling some of the biology associated with post-transcriptional processing of RNA. This work involves the integration of a number of bioinformatics resources, from comparing annotations to processing images to determining the structure of transcripts. The rapidly growing datasets of GeneChips available to the community puts us in a strong position to discover novel biology about post-transcriptional processing, and should enable us to determine the mechanisms by which some groups of genes make co-ordinated changes in their production of isoforms.
