About this book

The Bioconductor project was initiated in 2001 to provide a resource of R packages that specifically address bioinformatics problems. Written by the leader of this project and the original developer of the R software, Bioinformatics with R provides an overview of techniques to develop R programming skills for bioinformatics. The book presents comprehensive coverage of a broad range of key topics, including R language fundamentals, object-oriented programming in R, foreign language interfaces, building R packages, handling different data technologies, and debugging. It includes a number of detailed illustrative bioinformatics examples as well as exercises to demonstrate techniques.
