Software requirements for 2018 mixOmics workshops

We list below some installation requirements to ensure the mixOmics workshop will run smoothly for everyone. Please update / install prior to the workshop to avoid a WIFI backload.

Software installation and updates. The latest version of mixOmics 6.6.0 is now on Bioconductor following the latest R 3.5 update. You may need to update your R version.

To install our latest version, type in an R console:

> if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))
> BiocManager::install("mixOmics", version = "3.8")

Alternatively, to download directly from our gitHub page:

> install_github("mixOmicsTeam/mixOmics")

The mixOmics package should directly import the following packages: igraph, rgl, ellipse, corpcor, RColorBrewer, plyr, parallel, dplyr, tidyr, reshape2, methods , matrixStats , rARPACK, gridExtra .

Check after install that the following does not throw any error* and that the welcome message confirms you have installed version 6.6.0:

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 then reinstall mixOmics.

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