Download the Rmd file Introduction If someone were to ask me: “Quick - give me a useful R package. Go!” I would respond with the here package. The problem I’ve been in the position where I am running R code on both Windows and Linux or even reusing a script in a different project.

Getting started with the SRA Toolkit Let’s say you want to download some sequences from the sequence read archive (SRA) at NCBI. How do you do it? First, we need to make sure the SRA toolkit binaries are in your path. 1 which fastq-dump Should produce the full path to your fastq-dump binary. If it’s not present, then we’ll need to add the directory where it is stored to your path.
Getting started with conda Here are some reasons conda might be a useful tool for your research: Installing a second version of a system executable for testing. Software version requirements of a tool that cannot be satisfied using system installs (newer version needed). Using software that is difficult to compile from source. Using software packages that have been optimized for conda environments. Maintaining separate environments for individual research/development projects. References:
