I was wondering what all packages of R people have on their Rstudio. Specifically the people involved in NGS data analysis. 

I know, of the compatibility issues of some packages with the R version installed for Rstudio. How do you all circumvent this issue?

Overall it will be good to have a list of must have R packages that can be installed on a Rstudio running certain version of R.

Out of curiosity, I really want to know what is going around in this area and how people are dealing with it. For me whenever certain things do not work on my R studio due to compatibility issue I just run it outside Rstudio on a different version. But, I am sure others must be having different take on this issue.


Kindly share your valuable thoughts.

We have a couple directories of packages (for different architectures and versions) that people can just link to or copy over.

Edit: I should note that I don't really use R-studio server much myself, though I run the server. I roll old-school and just use plain R.
