Provides classes similar to ExpressionSet for copy number analysis

Bioconductor version: Release (2.11)

Load, manipulate, and plot copynumber and BAF data. GenoSet class extends eSet by adding a "locData" slot for a RangedData or GRanegs object. This object contains feature genome location data and provides for efficient subsetting on genome location. CNSet and BAFSet extend GenoSet and require assayData matrices for Copy Number (cn) or Log-R Ratio (lrr) and B-Allele Frequency (baf) data. Implements and provides convenience functions for processing of copy number and B-Allele Frequency data.
