3Download the R package collection

BRB-ArrayTools uses an old version of R. Some required R packages may have problems being installed automatically in the program from the internet. The R package collection contains the R packages required for most of the analysis tools in BRB-ArrayTools. The program may still need to install other R packages, such as annotation R packages.

After downloading the installer and the R package collection files, you need to put them under the same folder and run the installer to install BRB-ArrayTools and the R packages.
