But in the hgu133plus2 database it is only mapped to 138474. Moreover, in all the cases where a probeset is mapped to multiple genes in the Affymetrix file, only one of them is chosen as mapped gene in the hgu133plus2. I wish to know in what basis the other genes are ommitted from mapping. Was there any algorithm to select the mapped gene among the multiple one's?
