From the reviews:

"This work has extended R substantially and is an important tool for research. … All the code, including solutions to the exercises, is available for downloading on the Web and-this is well worth mentioning-it runs straight out of the box…. The book describes various analysis, provides the code for them and discusses the output. This makes for an easy read and anyone who works through the book will gain confidence that they can carry out analysis on their own data. The discussion of analysis is generally sound and practical. In particular the interpretation of the results of clustering is more sensible then you often see…. This book is strongly recommended for learning more about Bioconductor." (Antony Unwin, Journal of Statistical Software, January 2009, Volume 29, Book Review 1).

"The readership of this book will be specialized but the text deserves to be read more widely within the statistics and computer science communities as there is much to interest the inquiring mind. … Exercises for private study and their solutions are provided as an integral part of the text. "(C.M. O’Brien, International Statistical Review, 2009, 77, 1)

“One of the great advantages of the R language is its dynamic nature, where code and other resources are continuously generated in order to address novel analytical challenges. Microarray gene expression data present such a challenge, and the Bioconductor project has risen over the years to become the foremost central repository of R-implemented approaches for such data. However, while individual packages within Bioconductor are usually well documented, it is often hard to know which packages to use in what circumstances, especially when tools from several packages are best used in concert. This text aims to fill that void by offering a collection of case studies derived from the authors’ own Bioconductor courses, covering the topics of processing raw intensities; correcting for background noise and variation across chips; differential expression analysis; machine learning for clustering and classification; graph creation; and gene set enrichment. …All in all, this text is an excellent, well-written reference for many of the common tasks that arise during the analysis of microarray gene expression datasets, as implemented by Bioconductor. It is well worth the modest sum required for its purchase.” (The American Statistician, May 2010, Vol. 64, No. 2)
