Client to access ExperimentHub resources

Bioconductor version: Release (3.14)

This package provides a client for the Bioconductor ExperimentHub web resource. ExperimentHub provides a central location where curated data from experiments, publications or training courses can be accessed. Each resource has associated metadata, tags and date of modification. The client creates and manages a local cache of files retrieved enabling quick and reproducible access.
