Details

NetAffxResource creates a NetAffxResource object that manages a data base of NetAffx resources. The data base is located on the user file system as indicated by the directory arugment. It is populated when the user requests specific files.

Users should provide a directory argument, so that the data base can be reused across sessions. This means that large files are only downloaded once.

Additional details are provided in the vignette accompanying this package.

Value

NetAffxResource.
