BeadArray Specific Methods for Illumina Methylation and Expression Microarrays

Bioconductor version: 2.9

The lumi package provides an integrated solution for the Illumina microarray data analysis. It includes functions of Illumina BeadStudio (GenomeStudio) data input, quality control, BeadArray-specific variance stabilization, normalization and gene annotation at the probe level. It also includes the functions of processing Illumina methylation microarrays, especially Illumina Infinium methylation microarrays.
