This lab has four (five!) parts. Each part consists of informative material followed by short or intermediate length exercises and case studies. The material introduces or refreshes your knowledge of R, and walks through some of the central classes and annotation resources for working with high-throughput sequence data in Bioconductor.

It’s recommended that you choose two or three of the following sections, and spend about 45 minutes to an hour on each. Take time to work through the code in the material as well as the exercises, asking questions of your colleagues and the TAs as needed. If you’re relatively new to R, then consider doing sections 1 and 3. If you’re new to Bioconductor, then skim the second and focus on the third and fourth sections.

Section 1.5 was added during the lectures this morning, representing one idea of ‘fun’!
