I 'm trying to use the packages metagene and metagene2 but I 'm getting the following error.

Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘metagene’ in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]):
 there is no package called ‘DESeq’

When I 'm trying to install DESeq I get the following error.

package ‘DESeq’ is not available for this version of R

Any idea how to proceed?

I also encountered this problem, and have contacted the package maintainer. I will post any resolution to the problem on my thread.

I'm the maintener of metagene2. Sorry for not catching your post sooner.

The dependency for DESeq was removed in the devl version of metagene2, but not for the release version. This was a mistake, and I've pushed a fix to the release branch of Bioconductor (metagene2 version 1.6.1) which should make metagene2 install correctly. The package should be updated in the next Bioconductor build, which I believe occurs nightly.

I'll update this answer once I've validated the fix did publish correctly. In the meantime, you can fix this issue by installing the devel version of metagene2.

Cheers, -Eric
