.cel File Extension

Developer: Affymetrix
File type: Affymetrix Probe Results File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .cel. Files with the file extension .cel can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .cel files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .cel file?

Files stored in the CEL format are classified as data files used by the Affymetrix software to reference data whenever the user views a .cel file and accesses features integrated into this application which correspond to the details entered in those CEL files by the authors of the files. The Affymetrix program is categorized as a microarray image analysis application and is used for DNA analysis by scientific researchers and geneticists. The content stored in these CEL files is comprised of Affymetrix GeneChip details associated to probes entered by the author of these CEL files. The CEL file format and the Affymetrix software may be used to enter many data points from this application, and this means these CEL files usually have large file sizes. These CEL files can also be processed and referenced by application algorithms that can convert the content into visual presentations via 2-dimensional charts or grids. Affymetrix GeneChips are biological chips developed to store microarrays gathered from one experimental project. The creation of these biological chips involve glass or silicon materials manufactured and implemented with probes. These probes are used to gather and analyze expression level data that is then classified as values further categorized into two groups, namely MM (mismatch) and PM (perfect match). These values are integrated into these CEL files as part of its content.

how to open a .cel file?

Launch a .cel file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .cel file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .cel files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .cel file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .cel file will open the correct application.

Affymetrix

The Affymetrix program is classified as a microarray image analysis application and is utilized for DNA analysis by scientific researchers and geneticists. Files saved in the CEL format are categorized as data files utilized by the Affymetrix software to source data whenever a .cel file is viewed and accesses features included into this application which corresponds to the details entered in those CEL files. The CEL file format and the Affymetrix software may be utilized to input numerous data points from this application, and it means that these CEL files usually have large file sizes. The content saved in these CEL files is comprised of Affymetrix GeneChip details coupled to probes entered by the author of these CEL files. Affymetrix GeneChips are biological chips created to save microarrays gathered from one experimental project. The creation of these biological chips involves glass or silicon materials manufactured and applied with probes. These probes are employed to gather and analyze expression level data that is then classified as values are categorized into two groups, namely MM (mismatch) and PM (perfect match). These values are incorporated into these CEL files as part of its content.
VOI Tool utility

VOI Tool utility

VOI Tool Utility was developed in PET Lab Institute intended to analyze Volumes of Interest (VOIs). This application has set of predefined anatomical VOIs that corresponds to all Talairach Atlas Labels but can save any VOI as SPM compatible image used for masking. Statisticians may also use the saved signal intensity data extracted from a set of VOIs as plain ASCII text file, but saving and extracting signal intensity data as plain ASCII text file are only limited to PET/SPECT models. This software is developed by Microsoft under Windows 98 operating system and only tested with MATLAB 6.0 Release 12. It can be used in any MATLAB supported platform and uses only features incorporated in MATLAB 5.3. VOI Tool utility can be installed by unzipping the file and adding installation folder to MATLAB's search path and should contain one subfolder "AnatomicalVoi", set of .m files and one .mat ihb_VoiDfl.mat file.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .cel files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .cel. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
