Bioconductor is a set of packages for R (a GPLd statistical data analysis language) which focus on bioinformatics data analysis, especially gene expression arrays (Affymetrix, cDNA spotted arrays). There are tools for statistical normalization, differential expression, genomic visualization, and biological annotation. Future work includes implementation and development of better statistical methods, distributed computing, visualization, and extensions to related high-throughput laboratory assays. The primary developers are research statisticians.
