Software requirements for mixOmics workshops

We list below some installation requirements to ensure the mixOmics workshop will run smoothly for everyone.

Important reminders. We expect the trainees to have a good working knowledge in R programming (e.g. handling data frame, perform simple calculations and display simple graphical outputs) to be able to fully enjoy the workshop.

Software installation and updates. To run the R scripts in this workshop, you will need to install or update the latest versions of R available from the CRAN (currently > 3.3, see also Installation guide for R and RStudio), followed by the update or installation of the following R packages:

  • mixOmics version 6.1.1 (the version number is important)
  • mvtnorm
  • RColorBrewer
  • corrplot
  • igraph

We also advise to use the software RStudio

For apple mac users, if you are unable to install the mixOmics imported library rgl, you will need to install the XQuartz software first .

Wifi will be available on site, but it is preferable that you make those installations before the workshop to avoid delays for the analyses.

Any question regarding the requirements and software installation: email us at mixomics[at]
