R and Bioconductor Introduction
In this chapter we cover basic uses of R and begin working with Bioconductor datasets and tools. Topics covered include simple R programming, R graphics, and working with environments as hash tables. We introduce the ExpressionSet class as an example for a basic Bioconductor structure used for holding genomic data, in this case expression microarray data. And we explore some visualization techniques for gene expression data to get a feeling for R’s extensive graphical capabilities.
