> Is Bioconductor software free for industry or profit organizations?

Yes, insofar as the license of the packages is still respected.  I believe
that all packages are licensed under the LGPL or the GPL (You can see what
license a package is under by looking at the DESCRIPTION file, or
alternatively by clicking on the package name on the download pages).
