The [companion website](https://pachterlab.github.io/voyager/) for this package includes vignettes that showcase the functionality of `Voyager` in the context of the Visium, Slide-seq V2, CosMx, Xenium, and MERFISH technologies. ## Installation This package is in Bioconductor version 3.16 and above. Install with ```r if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager")) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install(version = "3.17") # Or a higher version in the future BiocManager::install("Voyager") ``` The main branch in this repo is the release version. The development version of Voyager can be installed from [GitHub](https://github.com/) with: ```r # install.packages("remotes") remotes::install_github("pachterlab/voyager", ref = "devel") ``` Or from Bioconductor with: ```r BiocManager::install("Voyager", version = "devel") ```
