Definition Tools for the analysis and comprehension o Tools for the analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genomic data that uses the R statistical programming language, is open source and open development. It has two releases each year, 749 software packages (March 2014), and an active user community. Bioconductor is also available as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI). There is also a development version, to which new features and packages are added prior to incorporation in the release. A large number of meta-data packages provide pathway, organism, microarray and other annotations. Bioconductor packages the GO ontology into their semi-annual release, with software tools to: query; join with diverse additional gene, microarray, and sequence annotations; incorporate GO into annotation, differential expression, and gene set enrichment work flows; and visualize. The broad goals of the Bioconductor project are:<br /> * To provide widespread access to a broad range of powerful statistical and graphical methods for the analysis of genomic data.<br /> * To facilitate the inclusion of biological metadata in the analysis of genomic data, e.g. literature data from PubMed, annotation data from LocusLink.<br /> * To provide a common software platform that enables the rapid development and deployment of extensible, scalable, and interoperable software.<br /> * To further scientific understanding by producing high-quality documentation and reproducible research. * To train researchers on computational and statistical methods for the analysis of genomic data.<br /> Platform: Windows compatible, Mac OS X compatible, Linux compatible, Unix compatible patible, Linux compatible, Unix compatible
