Welcome to the January 2015 newsletter. This is a quarterly look behind the scenes at recent developments and exploratory work going on in the core group and Bioconductor community. This issue covers Docker containers, work on coordinate mapping, changes to the algorithm underlying overlap operations and an overview of csaw, the most recent package contribution from the Smyth group.

Bioconductor is a project to develop and curate a collection of R packages used for analysis of genetic data (specifically, analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genomic data). With the wealth of genetic data on humans and animals now available, Bioconductor is widely used in medical research to understand how genes influence our health, and to develop new therapies and drugs. (It was used in this recent Nature Molecular Psychiatry article, for example.)
