Bioconductor - BiocGenerics + basic install for Bioconductor v11

A few useful commands to get your Bioconductor to level2:
Besides the nice upgrade command:

source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")

* biocLite("BiocUpgrade")

* biocLite("BiocGenerics") : basic functions needed by many packages.(manual can be obtained here)

ALSO of interest for NGS: Consider batch-installing a number of must-have:

* biocLite(c('affy' 'affyPLM' 'annmap' 'annotate' 'AnnotationDbi'

* Finally, a nice tutorial from a recent Bioconductor CSC2012 training can be found with attached material (here);

Bioconductor - 2012: Next generation sequencing data analysis with R/Bioconductor

June, CSC IT Center For Science, Espoo, Finland
This course by Dr Martin Morgan covers R/Bioconductor functionality for several aspects of next generation sequencing data analysis, ranging from RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data analysis to variant annotation. The course consists of lectures and hands-on exercises, and it is targeted for people who already have experience with the R statistical programming language.
