We have been using R studio with bio-conductor for micro array analysis. Previously we were using a licensed version of genespring which has expired and now we are looking for open source solutions.
We liked chipster in it's ease of use and functionality(demo), however we are facing technical difficulty in local installation.
Would really appreciate if the community could guide us through, we have installed all the compiler and OS dependencies.
1. Using the notes provided here(github page of chipster), the basic chipster installation is done. However adding the tools is proving to be difficult. at current stage we only require R + Bio-conductor(affy, limma etc packages), we are unable to link the tools by following this script here (github page of chipster)
-> Any suggestions or tutorials for this might be helpful.
2. We have tried using the virtual box but it is failing on Ubuntu as base OS with error that tools.vmdk from here can't start the VM throwing virtualization and files being in FAT format error (something about 4GB compression limit)
Now we are doing the analysis using R Studio but really want to try chipster in our own environment, so any/all help would be appreciated.
Meanwhile we are trying to install it and will update the post if we are successful.
