Client to access AnnotationHub resources
Released May 16, 2016 by Martin Morgan [cre], Marc Carlson [ctb], Dan Tenenbaum [ctb], Sonali Arora [ctb]
This package provides a client for the Bioconductor AnnotationHub web resource. The AnnotationHub web resource provides a central location where genomic files (e.g., VCF, bed, wig) and other resources from standard locations (e.g., UCSC, Ensembl) can be discovered. The resource includes metadata about each resource, e.g., a textual description, tags, and date of modification. The client creates and manages a local cache of files retrieved by the user, helping with quick and reproducible access.
