Annotation and Metadata
In this chapter we demonstrate the use of Bioconductor metadata resources. After having obtained a list of reporters from a microarray experiment and mapping them to their target genes, one will want to use the annotation of the genes and gene products to better interpret the experimental results. Often, it is beneficial to use gene annotation in the course of the primary analysis, in order to narrow down the set of data to be considered and ameliorate multiple testing problems, or in order to explore specific biological hypotheses.
