# MultiAssayExperiment <a href=''><img src='' align="right" height="100" /></a> ## Software For The Integration Of Multi-Omics Experiments In Bioconductor [![BioC status](]( [![Platforms](]( [![codecov](]( [![Downloads](]( ## Installation We recommend installing the stable release version of MultiAssayExperiment in Bioconductor. This can be done using `BiocManager`: ``` if (!require("BiocManager")) install.packages("BiocManager") library(BiocManager) install("MultiAssayExperiment") ``` ## Schematic Here is a visual overview of the `MultiAssayExperiment` class. The three main components are: * `colData` - phenotype data * `ExperimentList` - a list of tables from experimental results * `sampleMap` - a graph representation of 'samples' and 'participants' _Note_. For simplicity, we use the terms 'samples' and 'participants' to elucidate the relationship although `MultiAssayExperiment` can work on other biological specimens. <img src="vignettes/MultiAssayExperiment.png" alt="MultiAssayExperiment schematic"/> ## Cheatsheet <a href=""><img src="" width="989" height="1091"/></a> ## Ready-to-use `MultiAssayExperiment` objects For easy-to-use and ready-made MultiAssayExperiment objects, use the `curatedTCGAData` experiment data package. ``` install("curatedTCGAData") ``` ## Companion package for working with TCGA data TCGAutils is a handy package for working with `MultiAssayExperiment` data objects from `curatedTCGAData`. It is highly recommended to use `TCGAutils` for identifier manipulation, sample identification and more. ``` install("TCGAutils") ``` ## Documentation The `MultiAssayExperiment` API is available by browsing to the [API wiki]( ## The `MultiAssayExperiment` Bioconductor Special Interest Group This group meets remotely to discuss this project approximately every 3 weeks. If you are interested, please join the [MultiAssayExperiment Google Group](!forum/biocmultiassay) and see the [calendar]( of upcoming meetings. ## Contributor Code of Conduct As contributors and maintainers of this project, we pledge to respect all people who contribute through reporting issues, posting feature requests, updating documentation, submitting pull requests or patches, and other activities.
