In case my previous mail was not clear enough,
developers should add a biocViews: field to their
package DESCRIPTION files and add at least one term
from the vocabulary in that field, in a comma-separated

a good example is the following line in

biocViews: Microarray,TwoChannel,DataImport,QualityControl,Preprocessing

we will be using these to build the task view navigation tools
for browsing bioconductor software; to get better exposure of your
package, please pick from the terms in the following "dot"
schematization of the vocabulary.   if you need another term
contact me directly.


Microarray -> OneChannel;
Microarray -> TwoChannel;
Microarray -> DataImport;
Microarray -> QualityControl;
Microarray -> Preprocessing;
Microarray -> Transcription;
Microarray -> DNACopyNumber;
Microarray -> SNPsAndGeneticVariability;

Statistics -> DifferentialExpression;
Statistics -> Clustering;
Statistics -> Classification;
Statistics -> MultipleComparisons;

Technology -> Microarray;
Technology -> Proteomics;
Technology -> MassSpectrometry;
Technology -> SAGE;
Technology -> CellBasedAssays;
Technology -> Genetics;

Annotation -> GO;
Annotation -> Pathways;
Annotation -> ProprietaryPlatforms;
Annotation -> ReportWriting;
