In this short R/Bioconductor course we will introduce the basics of R in addition to many advanced topics. The course will focus on practical examples and real data sets. We will do a couple of in-depth analysis of microarray data as well as HapMap data.

In the Bioconductor portion of the course we will focus on the design of the core Bioconductor classes and how to work with some of the major packages including the affy package as well as limma.

Finally, the course will try to solidify the teaching with various quizzes and many examples.
