Hi, Mark. What chip are you using? If you are using hgu133a, for example,
you can do:
library(hgu133a) # after installing the hgu133a package from bioC
probeIDs <- ls(hgu133aSYMBOL)
symbols <- mget(probeIDs,hgu133aSYMBOL)
You probably want to look at the annotate and annaffy packages to learn some
Hope this gets you started.
