The aroma ("An R Object-oriented Microarray Analysis package") package was first developed in March 2001 as an extension to the sma ("Statistical Microarray Analysis") package (Yee Hwa Yang et al.).
In order to install the aroma package and all its dependencies (including the sma package), in a fresh R session do:
You may see some warnings, especially while installing the sma package, but you should not see/get any errors.
COMMENT: The sma package has been deprecated by its maintainer(s) and is (as of Feb 2011) only available via the CRAN archives. The last available version (sma v0.5.15) will no longer install on recent R version. For this reason, we have "patched" sma to v0.5.16 (not on CRAN; only on the servers of the Aroma Project) by doing minimal fixes such that it installs.
After installation, load the aroma and the sma packages by:
