About the Book

The Bioconductor project is a widely used open source and open development platform for software for computational biology.  It is a leading platform for doing data science in Genomics.  This book covers the core functionality needed to deploy Bioconductor on modern datasets, and will lay the foundation for you to learn and explore parts of the project devoted to specific application domains.

You will learn about the core data classes in Bioconductor, tools for manipulating genomic intervals and genome sequences, tools for getting your data into Bioconductor and for accessing online annotation data.  Finally, the book concludes with a number of short introductions to standard analysis packages.
