Base functions for bioinformatics and R package development.


Bioconductor method

We recommend installing the package with BiocManager.

if (!require("BiocManager")) {

For R < 3.5, BiocManager is not supported. Use BiocInstaller::biocLite() instead of BiocManager::install(). This requires sourcing the legacy Bioconductor biocLite.R script.

# Try `http` if `https` URLs are not supported.

conda method

Configure conda to use the bioconda channels.

conda config --add channels defaults
conda config --add channels bioconda
conda config --add channels conda-forge

To avoid version issues, your .condarc file should only contain the following channels, in this order:

  - conda-forge
  - bioconda
  - defaults

We recommend installing into a clean conda environment:

conda create --name r
conda activate r

Launch R and check that it is set up correctly with the capabilities() function. Note that X11 = TRUE is required for graphical output, and requires X11 forwarding over SSH.

Now you're ready to install r-basejump.

conda install -c bioconda r-basejump


The papers and software cited in our workflows are available as a shared library on Paperpile.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
