Base functions for bioinformatics and R package development.


R method

conda method

Configure conda to use the bioconda channels.

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:

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.
