You should post this on the support site (https://support.bioconductor.org),
using the 'News' item description. This bioc-devel is intended for
discussion of issues with development of packages, not really for
announcing new packages.

> Dear list,
> I would like to introduce the package bacon that has been added to
> bioconductor just before the release of version 3.3.
> bacon can be used to estimate and control for bias and inflation often
> present in epigenome- and transcriptome-wide association
> studies(EWAS/TWAS). The idea behind bacon is to estimate the empirical null
> distribution from the data (using Bayesian statistics) and use the
> empirical null i.s.o. a theoretical null for inference. Bacon supports
> bias- and inflation-controlled fixed-effect meta-analysis that can be
> executed in parallel. A manuscript is available from biorxiv (
> http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/05/27/055772).
