Starting with Bioconductor 1.8, we are using a new layout for
our package repositories.
All our repos were and are still under this place:
(don't try this URL, it doesn't work since there is no

indexes, etc...). This way you will need to bookmark just one link

PS: We still have to update our links in our Plone website
Please don't hesitate to report broken links, suggestions, etc...
All feedback is welcome. Thanks!
