I recently updated my set-up, and because I use a High-Performance cluster from my University (kudos to avakas) to run various simulations and analyses, I have MPI and Rmpi installed on my laptop in order to test my scripts before submitting them to the big cluster. So I installed openmpi from homebrew very easily: brew update brew install open-mpi But then I had extensive trouble installing the Rmpi package…


I just released a new package on CRAN. It’s called NPflow, it performs Dirichlet process mixture of multivariate normal, skew-normal or skew t-distributions modeling, you should check it out. I was a little worried because the check from Travis CI was returning a NOTE. And even though the NOTEs seem like mild problems, “you should strive to eliminate all NOTEs” before submitting to CRAN ! Preparing for an email exchange with a member of the R core team, I wrote the following in the submission comments:


After a bumpy road, along which I kept in mind Jeff Leak’s own worst (recent) experience, we finally got our article on Time-Course Gene Set Analysis for Longitudinal Gene Expression Data published in PLoS Computational Biology, a very nice journal ! I am really happy about it, don’t hesitate to check it out ! And there is the TcGSA R package that goes with it.
