Bioconductor [1] is an open source software project for the R statistical computing language. The main aim of the project is to provide R packages to facilitate the analysis of DNA microarray, sequencing, SNP and other genomic data. In addition to various packages for analysis of data, they also distribute meta-data packages that provide useful annotation. The stable non-development version of Bioconductor is normally released biannually.1 In addition to providing packages the Bioconductor site ( also provides documentation for each package, often a brief vignette and a more comprehensive user guide.
