I would like to use spanning-tree progression analysis of density normalized event (SPADE).
I really think spade tree offers a visualization that helps interpretation.
It seems like bioconductor is the only one that give to us a way to get spade trees in R.
For some reasons, Bioconductors 3.4 removed spade package. I did not find any explanation about that.
I assume that is why I get this error:
Using Bioconductor 3.7 (BiocInstaller 1.30.0), R 3.5.0 (2018-04-23).
Installing package(s) ‘spade’
Old packages: 'dendextend', 'dplyr', 'FactoMineR', 'graph', 'MASS', 'quantable', 'Rcpp', 'shiny', 'stringi', 'survival', 'tidyr'
Update all/some/none? [a/s/n]:
package ‘spade’ is not available (for R version 3.5.0)
I have found only old comments like everybody forgot about SPADE.
Is that possible to download it directly from http://www.bioconductor.org/packages//2.12/bioc/html/spade.html ?
If so, the reason is missing, still. I do not want my analysis to be wrong because of a defective package.
Thank you very much for all that try to help.
