Hi Hector, I'm cc'ing the Bioconductor mailing list. Hope you don't mind.

So if you are on Windows or Mac you need to use type="source" when you do available.genomes() or biocLite(). For example on a Mac with R 3.1.0: > library(BSgenome) > grep("GRCh38", available.genomes(), value=TRUE) character(0) > grep("GRCh38", available.genomes(type="source"), value=TRUE) [1] "BSgenome.Hsapiens.NCBI.GRCh38" Note that in BioC devel, there is a new utility, getBSgenome(), documented in the same man page as available.genomes(), that is the recommended way to lookup a BSgenome object by genome assembly or by full BSgenome package name. If the BSgenome package is not installed, it will tell you exactly how to install it: > getBSgenome("GRCh38") Error in .stopOnAvailablePkg(genome, is.source = TRUE) : BSgenome.Hsapiens.NCBI.GRCh38 package is not currently installed. You first need to install it, which you can do with: library(BiocInstaller) biocLite("BSgenome.Hsapiens.NCBI.GRCh38", type="source") See ?getBSgenome for the details.
