DNA methylation data analysis and visualization

Bioconductor version: 2.14

The methyAnalysis package aims for the DNA methylation data analysis and visualization. A new class is defined to keep the chromosome location information together with the data. The current version of the package mainly focus on analyzing the Illumina Infinium methylation array data, but most methods can be generalized to other methylation array or sequencing data.
