LaTex

Why LATEX

LaTex is a popular typesetting system. It allows to create highly portable formats (like PDF) with complex mathematic, table and figure contents. R and Bioconductor experts are especially interested in LaTex since with the help of Sweave package it is possible to produce PDF documents embedded with equations, figures and all other possible outputs from R. Such documents, known as Vignette, encourages the producible research since the analysis procedure can be exactly reproduced at any place and any time provided the data is also provided.
