Bioonductor: summary

[ Update: Sorry for the dup. I tried using the new formatting on this one, but found a problem, which I hope is fixed now.]

I promise this is the last one. Here we load the sample data from ExpressionSet. I show (once again) how to obtain all the relevant stuff: expression data, sample names, feature names, and gene names.

One of the nice things about ExpressionSet objects is the very fancy indexing one can do with them. A great example is given on p. 166 of the Bioconductor book.

I made an stab at implementing range selectors here but it's almost trivial. Also, in this one, the Python code does not contain any informative whitespace, so I've used the <code> tag.
The script is first and then the output. If you can't figure something out, just ask.
