Effectively using the DelayedArray framework to support the analysis of large datasets
Peter Hickey Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research
This workshop gives an introductory overview of the DelayedArray framework, which can be used by R / Bioconductor packages to support the analysis of large array-like datasets. A DelayedArray is like an ordinary array in R, but allows for the data to be in-memory, on-disk in a file, or even hosted on a remote server.
Workshop participants will learn where they might encounter a DelayedArray in the wild while using Bioconductor and understand the fundamental concepts underlying the DelayedArray framework. This workshop will feature introductory material, ‘live’ coding, and Q&A, all of which are adapted from the content below.
This is a repeat of my BioC 2020 virtual workshop. I plan to revise the written material but re-use the video recording as-is.
