[BioC] BioC GUI development

I notice that GUI development is on the agenda for the BioC 
Users Group meeting.  So I thought I'd give an update on what 
I'm working on.

Some of you know, I have an R/TclTk GUI for the limma package 
called limmaGUI, which is only for cDNA microarray data.  
(Slightly out-of-date) screenshots of worked examples are 
available at :

More recently, I've been working on an affy version of the GUI 
called affylmGUI.  Screenshots are available at:

The discussion at BioCBUG may focus more on web-based GUIs which 
is fine.  But Tcl/Tk may be of interest to some people.  

If anyone wants to install limmaGUI or affylmGUI, they require 
the Tcl/Tk extensions Tktable and BWidget (available in the
ActiveTcl distribution) or from sourceforge.  tkrplot from 
CRAN is required for plotting and some other R packages 
are recommended (see the DESCRIPTION files). 


Don't try to run them both simultaneously in the same R session - 
not possible yet.
