I am doing a work where I assume that R and specifically Bioconductor project is the most used technology to analyse microarrays. (Is it true?) I could be wrong, how can I defend this assumption?
In general terms I would say compare citations of articles, or packages stats. But is there anything else I should do?
My fears: Even searching for reviews and looking for software and tools named there I could leave outside the new tools. If I couldn't find a good review (old, naming few tools, addressing other aspects...) how I am supposed to find the most used technology?
