Hi all,

New to bioinformatics and am having trouble with RNAseq data analysis - namely alot of the packages recommended are 'not available for R version 3.4.2'
Is there a repository for the most up to date packages of limma and edgeR among others for example?

Thanks in advance

Please be more specific. Are you using biocLite from BiocInstaller  1.28.0?

No, there isn't any problem with availability of packages. All the packages used in the limma or edgeR workflows are readily available for R 3.4.2 or 3.4.3. Just follow the installation instructions explained in .

Briefly you start R, then type



This will install the latest versions of the packages.
