Hi Sarah

you need to install the rpy module:


As a warning: we have been struggling to get rpy to work with newer versions of R. In or experience in only works with R version 2.9 and older. Thanks to a recent effort of our sysadmin, we can now use it with 2.15 - which is good, but not great, as our default version of R is now 3.0

Although we haven't started to us it, I recommend using rpy2:


Most tools have been refactored by John Chilton

Some Galaxy tools failed to import rpy module and displays the following

Traceback (most recent call last):

ImportError: No module named rpy

For instance, the tool "Regrouping" (tools/stats/grouping.py) have been
refactored in 2011 by Kanwei Li to use numpy instead of rpy. And this
tool runs on my local instance of Galaxy.
But I would like to be able use rpy module instead of refactor the
others tools.

Could you, please, help me to understand why the eggs ' import does not
allow the use of rpy module? How to debug these tools?

Thnaks in advance,
