The R Genetics Project The R Genetics Project Bioconductor for Genetics

INTRODUCTION: The R Genetics Project is a collaborative effort to develop a complete set of The R Genetics Project is a collaborative effort to develop a complete set of tools for storing, accessing, manipulating, and analyzing genetics data, from small candidate gene studies consisting of a few genetic markers to large small candidate gene studies consisting of a few genetic markers to large whole genome studies containing hundreds of thousands of markers. The whole genome studies containing hundreds of thousands of markers.

The initial goal is to provide a foundation of efficient data structures and easy to initial goal is to provide a foundation of efficient data structures and easy to use manipulation functions. We intend this foundation to allow methods use manipulation functions. We intend this foundation to allow methods developers to quickly and easily develop packages implementing their own developers to quickly and easily develop packages implementing their own techniques, while maintaining interoperability. This will reduce the burden techniques, while maintaining interoperability. This will reduce the burden on both method developers and applied data analysis, who must currently on both method developers and applied data analysis, who must currently move data between numerous packages and data formats. move data between numerous packages and data formats.

The foundation R Genetics packages, The foundation R Genetics packages, GeneticsBase eneticsBase, has reached sufficient has reached sufficient maturity for introduction to the R community. This talk will describe the R maturity for introduction to the R community. This talk will describe the R Genetics project, provide an outline of the data structures and features Genetics project, provide an outline of the data structures and features within GeneticsBase eneticsBase We will give a brief demo of some of these features, e will give a brief demo of some of these features,
as well as mentioning several additional packages which are building upon as well as mentioning several additional packages which are building upon this common base, including this common base, including FBAT, GeneticsDesign eneticsDesign and GeneticsPed eneticsPed.
