Brazilian 2014 Cancer Epigenomics Workshop is an international forum of world renowned scientists in the area of cancer epigenomics and bioinformatics. In collaboration with the 60th Society of Brazilian Genetics Congress and the Latin American Bioconductor Foundation, we have put together a series of talks and hands-on training. The workshop will include high-level science talks plus a short course on bioinformatics using open source statistical tool - R and Bioconductor to analyze large-scale biological data. Bioconductor is a community driven platform, devoted to providing resources (via packages) for molecular biologist, computational biologist and bioinformatician interested in using R to analyze big bio-data, such as microarray and next-generation sequencing.
