This package is for version 3.17 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see FlowSorted.Blood.EPIC.

Illumina EPIC data on immunomagnetic sorted peripheral adult blood cells

Bioconductor version: 3.17

Raw data objects to be used for blood cell proportion estimation in minfi and similar packages. The FlowSorted.Blood.EPIC object is based in samples assayed by Brock Christensen and colleagues; for details see Salas et al. 2018. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/geo/query/acc.cgi?acc=GSE110554.
