According to the Stata website, Stata has a limit of 32,767 variables (I've never personally had to go that high). Yet, in today's world of genomics, we may have a dataset with 100,000+ variables -- for example, in a microarray dataset, each gene would be a variable.

How do people do such analyses in Stata?

Is there a trick to handle such data?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
