This tutorial introduces R users to the Bioconductor project, a collection of more than 400 packages for the analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genetic data. The tutorial highlights flexible facilities for the analysis of DNA sequence data.
To prepare for this workshop, please install R version 2.13.1.
Exercises require additional packages. Install these by starting an R session and entering (e.g., cut-and-paste from below)
source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R") biocLite(c("GenomicFeatures", "ShortRead", "edgeR", "org.Dm.eg.db", "BSgenome.Dmelanogaster.UCSC.dm3"))
The workshop uses moderately sized data; your laptop (Mac, Windows, or Linux) should have 2 Gb or more of memory and ample disk space.
If using Linux or MacOS, download the Source package and install with
install.packages("useR2011_0.1.0.tar.gz", repos=NULL, type="source")
