How is the Gene Name Determined?

Here is the logic that was used to assign a gene name to the oligo.

Why Do Some Affymetrix IDs End With A Number?

The answer is because these ologos had multiple good hits against the bovine genome or against the Bos taurus reference sequences. If there is more than one good hit against the genome, each hit is compared separately against the genes around it.
