Details

The SQLForge code uses a series of intermediate database packages that are necessary to build updated custom annotation packages. These packages must be installed or updated if you want to make a custom annotation package for a particular organism. These special intermediate packages contain the latest freeze of the data needed to build custom annotation data packages and are easily identified by the fact that they end with the special ".db0" suffix. This function will list all such packages that are available for a specific version of bioconductor.

The available.dbschemas() and available.chipdbschemas() functions allow you to get a list of the schema names that are available similar to how you can list the available ".db0" packages by using available.db0pkgs(). This list of shemas is useful (for example) when you want to build a new package and need to know the name of the schema you want to use.

Value

A character vector containing the names of the available ".db0" data packages. Or a a character vector listing the names of the available schemas.
