Installation

1. R requirement

R (http://www.r-project.org) is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. We assume R (version 3.1.0 or higher) has been installed in your local machine. The latest version can be installed following instructions below for different platforms (Windows, Mac, and Linux).

Assume you have a ROOT (sudo) privilege:

sudo su
# here enter your password
wget http://www.stats.bris.ac.uk/R/src/base/R-3/R-3.2.1.tar.gz
tar xvfz R-3.2.1.tar.gz
cd R-3.2.1
./configure
make
make check
make install
R # start R

Assume you do not have a ROOT privilege and want R installation under your home directory ($HOME):

wget http://www.stats.bris.ac.uk/R/src/base/R-3/R-3.2.1.tar.gz
tar xvfz R-3.2.1.tar.gz
cd R-3.2.1
./configure --prefix=$HOME/R-3.2.1
make
make check
make install
$HOME/R-3.2.1/bin/R # start R

2. Installation of the package

Notes: below are R command lines (NOT shell command lines in Terminal).

First, install dependant/imported/suggested packages:

source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite(c("hexbin","ape","supraHex","graph","Rgraphviz","igraph","Biobase","limma","survival","foreach","doMC","devtools"))

Second, install the package dnet under stable release version hosted in CRAN:

install.packages("dnet",repos="http://cran.r-project.org",type="source")

Third (highly recommended), update the package dnet from latest development version hosted in GitHub:

library(devtools)
if("dnet" %in% rownames(installed.packages())) remove.packages("dnet")
install_github(c("hfang-bristol/dnet"))
