HERON is a software package for analyzing peptide binding array data. In addition to identifying significant binding probes, HERON also provides functions for finding epitopes (string of consecutive peptides within a protein). HERON also calculates significance on the probe, epitope, and protein level by employing meta p-value methods. HERON is designed for obtaining calls on the sample level and calculates fractions of hits for different conditions.

You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install bioconductor-heron

and update with::

   mamba update bioconductor-heron

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname bioconductor-heron

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `bioconductor-heron/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
