I am trying to use a function "findMarkers" from "scran" package. The installation and loading of scran works fine as can be seen in the messages printed when "library (scran)" command is run (below). However, when I run the "findMarkers()" command, R throws an error that it can't find the function. This strange since the "scran" manuals describes this function but R cannot find it, or am I missing something? Any help is appreciated.
Thank you for your time.
