Classes and Methods for high throughput SNP chip data

Bioconductor version: 2.8

This package defines classes and functions for plotting copy number and genotype in high throughput SNP platforms such as Affymetrix and Illumina. In particular, SNPchip is a useful add-on to the oligo package for visualizing SNP-level estimates after pre-processing.
