Hi everybody,

I'm trying to replicate an article from 2018, in which they used these two packages:

InSilicoDb: https://www.bioconductor.org/packages//2.13/bioc/html/inSilicoDb.html

InSilicoMerging : https://www.bioconductor.org/packages//2.13/bioc/html/inSilicoDb.html

I'm not able to install those packages in R, I would like to know which is the convenient way to use this packages? Even if they are not up to date.

Thank you in advance!

Each version of bioconductor is in principle tied to a version of R. So the procedure would be to find out which version of R goes with the version of bioconductor that includes these packages then install this R version and the corresponding bioconductor then you can install the packages using the standard bioconductor installation method.

Old versions of Windows R here: https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/old/

If you want the 2.13 version of the BioConductor package, you will need R 3.0.2, see here.

Did the methods section in manuscript mention the version of R and library used in analysis? If not , try to contact manuscript author for R session information.
