Learn to use tools from the Bioconductor project to perform analysis of genomic data. This is the fifth course in the Genomic Big Data Specialization from Johns Hopkins University.


Week One
-The class will cover how to install and use Bioconductor software. We will discuss common data structures, including ExpressionSets, SummarizedExperiment and GRanges used across several types of analyses.

Week Two
-In this week we will learn how to represent and compute on biological sequences, both at the whole-genome level and at the level of millions of short reads.

Week Three
- In this week we will cover Basic Data Types, ExpressionSet, biomaRt, and R S4.

Week Four
-In this week, we will cover Getting data in Bioconductor, Rsamtools, oligo, limma, and minfi
