Whenever I tried to install DESeq on my MAC OS X, such messages appeared. (Bold characters are what I typed.)



Using Bioconductor 3.2 (BiocInstaller 1.20.1), R 3.2.3 (2015-12-10).

Your installed packages are out of sync, in particular BiocGenerics 0.17.3 is "too new". Best to install R from scratch, then use biocLite to install DESeq and its dependencies.


(Bioc release 3.2 goes with BiocGenerics 0.16: )
