I have a legacy script using `downstream` function which I believe it is from GenomicRanges package. I may be wrong, then I would like to know the correct package to use. I found out about this after updating to bioconductor version 3.6 (see full sessioninfo below).

after the update, `downstream` is not found. If the function is removed, shouldn't be a deprecation warning?

There is a VariantAnnotation::downstream() function.

Thank you Martin. I will look into that function but I am hesitated to use it before finding some better solution. This is because I don't work anything with variants for this data. Can follow or precede do the job?

Have you told us what version you think there was a GenomicRanges::downstream() function? Not much point saying that precede / follow are comparable without knowing what to compare with...
