I wanted to highlight a recent1 change in the dplyr package that is likely to break a lot of people's existing code. That package now exports2 a function named exprs, which masks a function of the same name from the Biobase package. The latter tends to be used frequently in conjunction with ExpressionSet objects. This may lead to obscure error messages. I am not sure whether a sane remedy exists.

2 More precisely, re-exports it from the rlang package

I end up by assigning exprs specifically to Biobase::exprs and place it at the beginning of the code.

exprs=Biobase::exprs

The conflicted package forces one to resolve conflicts, and might be a 'best practice'.
