Overview

The BiocManager package, as the modern successor package to BiocInstaller, allows users to install and manage packages from the Bioconductor project. Bioconductor focuses on the statistical analysis and comprehension of high-throughput genomic data.

Current Bioconductor packages are available on a ‘release’ version intended for every-day use, and a ‘devel’ version where new features are continually introduced. A new release version is created every six months. Using the BiocManager package helps users accurately install packages from the appropriate release.

Installation

if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))
    install.packages("BiocManager")

Usage

Checking Bioconductor version currently installed

BiocManager::version()
#> [1] '3.11'

Installing Bioconductor packages

BiocManager::install(c("GenomicRanges", "SummarizedExperiment"))

Verifying a valid Bioconductor installation

BiocManager::valid()
