Please, install in your computer and test prior to the corresponding lesson. If you have problems installing any of the indicated software then email the corresponding contact person (in brackets).
Chimera: install current prodution release from https://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/download.html (protein 3D representation; Miguel Andrade)
JalView: install from http://www.jalview.org/getdown/release/ (alignment and structure representation; Miguel Andrade)
SeaView: (alignments and phylogenetic trees; Pablo Mier)
1. Download from: http://doua.prabi.fr/software/seaview
2. Decompress the folder
3. Click on file "seaview_WINDOWS.exe"
5. Go in folder "seaview"
6. Click on "seaview.exe"
R: (RNAseq analysis, Federico Marini) (ideally R >= 4.0.0, https://cran.r-project.org/) - latest version recommended (4.0.4 at the moment of writing)
RStudio: (RNAseq analysis, Federico Marini) (recommended)
https://rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/, the free version is more than enough!
CRAN and Bioconductor (https://bioconductor.org/) packages: (RNAseq analysis, Federico Marini)
For the bulk transcriptome analysis:
# install the Bioc installer
# install Bioc version 3.12
BiocManager::install(version = "3.12")
# install specific Bioconductor packages BiocManager::install(c("pcaExplorer", "ideal", "GeneTonic", "macrophage", "org.Hs.eg.db", "clusterProfiler"), dependencies = TRUE)
Check all packages are installed by calling library("package_name") e.g.
... should return no error
