DepMap bioconductor package

Users recently asked us:

What is the relationship between the DepMap Project and the Bioconductor R package ‘depmap’?


This depmap package was developed by Laurent Gatto and Theo Killian of UCLouvain in Belgium, and is not affiliated with the DepMap project.

We love it when people use depmap to create useful resources for the community! :heart_eyes:

I’m using the Bioconductor depmap package (v 1.20) to access the DepMap portal data. Using the function depmap_copyNumer() results in the wrong table…not getting the copy number data…I think it is the metadata table…so maybe wrong linked.

Hi dannyM,

As mentioned above, this package is not affiliated with the depmap project. You might want to contact its developers directly.


Thank you very much for mentioning the depmap package here. :+1:t2:

For any questions related to the package, please either use the Bioconductor support forum or open an issue on Github.
