BiocGenerics-package: S4 generic functions for Bioconductor

Description Details Note Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

S4 generic functions needed by many Bioconductor packages.

Details

We divide the generic functions defined in the BiocGenerics package in 2 categories: (1) functions already defined in base R and explicitly promoted to generics in BiocGenerics, and (2) Bioconductor specific generics.

(1) Functions defined in base R and explicitly promoted to generics in the BiocGenerics package

Generics for functions defined in package base:

Generics for functions defined in package utils:

Generics for functions defined in package graphics:

Generics for functions defined in package stats:

Generics for functions defined in package parallel:

(2) Bioconductor specific generics

Note

More generics can be added on request by sending an email to the Bioc-devel mailing list:

Things that should NOT be added to the BiocGenerics package:
