Hi -

I've got a question regarding using Bioconductor. I've been struggling with Bioconductor for the past week - I was under the impression that Bioconductor could be used for 'high-throughput' analysis on large files (500MB+) without any trouble on my laptop.

Specifically - I am trying to do ChIP-seq analysis on a genome wide scale. Unfortunately, I haven't even been able to get the files to load. R tries to load them in their entirely into RAM - I guess I thought it would work with the files without necessarily loading them into memory.

What strategies do people use to work with large files in Bioconductor? Is there some major thing I am missing here?

Thanks!
Dan
