This is just a short note that if you do any biological data analysis – whether it is sequence data, flow cytometry data or any other data then first look at Bioconductor website. This has open source data, mostly written in R, that enable you to see what is the process that is used to analyze the data as well as giving you the solution that enables you to do data analysis for the cost of processing time. There are many packages for genome sequence analysis and bioinformatics but there are interesting packages too. For example "imageHTS" for microscopy HTS data : Analysis of high-throughput microscopy-based screens.

Most of these packages run on the local machine but it is also possible to run them in the cloud based on your setup.

What is your favorite package in Bioconductor?
