Short Description
R 3.4.x + MKL 2017.3 + Bioconductor on Ubuntu 14.04.5
Full Description

R Versions 3.4.0 and 3.4.1 are ready. See tags.

Q: What is the difference between robbyjo/r-mkl-bioconductor with robbyjo/r-mkl-shlib-bioconductor?

A: Both have the same set of libraries. The latter compile R as shared library (hence "shlib"), which allows integration with other languages (e.g., C/C++, Python, Ruby, etc.). The drawbacks are:

  1. R developers claim that having shlib enabled will make R run slower. However my limited empirical results say that they are about the same.
  2. The shlib enabled version is quite a bit bigger.
