Summary:ArrayExpress is one of the largest public repositories of microarray datasets. R/Bioconductor provides a comprehensive suite of microarray analysis and integrative bioinformatics software. However, easy ways for importing datasets from ArrayExpress into R/Bioconductor have been lacking. Here, we present such a tool that is suitable for both interactive and automated use.

Availability: The ArrayExpress package is available from the Bioconductor project at A users guide and examples are provided with the package.


Supplementary information:Supplementary data are available Bioinformatics online.
