We are pleased to announce the release of Bioconductor 1.8. This release includes 35 new packages and many improvements and bug fixes to existing packages. Please visit http://bioconductor.org for details and downloads. Thanks to all of the package maintainers for their hard work. Best Wishes, + seth Contents ======== - Release Highlights - Getting Started With Bioconductor 1.8 - Known Issues - 35 New Packages - Packages in 1.7 that didn't make it to 1.8 Release Highlights ================== - BiocViews, a new way to browse the Bioconductor package repositories. Have a look: http://bioconductor.org/packages/1.8/BiocViews.html - New cdf and probe packages produced by the Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience Institute (MBNI) at the University of Michigan. These packages re-map the individual probes using the most current annotation sources (UniGene, RefSeq, ENSEMBL, Entrez Gene, Tigr, DoTS, and dbSNP). For more information, please see the MBNI web page__ The naming convention for these packages is more complex than for the normal probe and cdf packages, especially since some are mapped against related species. The name is derived as follows: SPECIES_CHIP_MAPPED-SPECIES_VERSION_TYPE. For example, a cdf for the HG-U133A chip, mapped to the human genome, and based on Entrez Gene would be named hs133ahsentrezg7cdf (based on Hs_133A_Hs_version-7_CDF). The same chip mapped to chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) would be hs133aptentrezg7cdf. __ http://brainarray.mhri.med.umich.edu/Brainarray/Database/CustomCD F/genomic_curated_CDF.asp Getting Started With Bioconductor 1.8 ===================================== To get started with Bioconductor 1.8, please: - Install R 2.3.0. Bioconductor 1.8 has been designed expressly for this version of R. - Follow the instructions here: http://www.bioconductor.org/docs/install-howto.html Known Issues ============ - The following packages are not currently available for Windows: EBImage GeneR iSPlot maDB MVCClass pgUtils RdbiPgSQL RMAGEML widgetInvoke - Due to a hardware failure, OS X binaries for Bioconductor 1.8 are not currently available. We expect to have OS X binaries available within the next three weeks. - The YEAST annotation package contains two GO ids (GO:0043625 and GO:0043626) that are not present in the GO annotation package. The yeast data used a slightly newer GO build. We aim to synchronize these data resources in the next release. 35 New Packages =============== affyio Title: Tools for parsing Affymetrix data files Maintainer: Benjamin Milo Bolstad <bmb at="" bmbolstad.com=""> gtkWidgets Title: Widgets built using RGtk Maintainer: Jianhua Zhang<jzhang at="" jimmy.harvard.edu=""> exprExternal Title: Implementation of exprSet using externalVectors Maintainer: Biocore Team <biocpkgs at="" lists.fhcrc.org=""> MVCClass Title: Model-View-Controller (MVC) Classes Maintainer: Elizabeth Whalen <ewhalen at="" hsph.harvard.edu=""> LMGene Title: LMGene Software for Date Transformation and Identification Maintainer: Geun Cheol Lee <gcxlee at="" ucdavis.edu=""> biocViews Title: Categorized views of R package repositories Maintainer: Seth Falcon <sfalcon at="" fhcrc.org=""> RLMM Title: A Genotype Calling Algorithm for Affymetrix SNP Arrays Maintainer: Nusrat Rabbee <nrabbee at="" post.harvard.edu=""> affycoretools Title: Functions useful for those doing repetitive analyses Maintainer: James W.
