Re-using Content in Bioconductor Books






Provides utilities to re-use content across chapters of a Bioconductor book. This is mostly based on functionality developed while writing the OSCA book, but generalized for potential use in other large books with heavy compute. Also contains some functions to assist book deployment.

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-rebook

and update with::

   mamba update bioconductor-rebook

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname bioconductor-rebook

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-rebook/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
