Provides classes similar to ExpressionSet for copy number analysis

Bioconductor version: 3.0

Load, manipulate, and plot copynumber and BAF data. GenoSet class extends eSet by adding a "locData" slot for a GRanges object. This object contains feature genome location data and provides for efficient subsetting on genome location. Provides convenience functions for processing of copy number and B-Allele Frequency data. Provides the class RleDataFrame to store runs of data along the genome for multiple samples.
