[Bioc-devel] Installing Geoquery on R version 2.13.1

As shown here:

The easiest way to install bioconductor packages is via `biocLite`. Just:

R> source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
R> biocLite('GEOquery')

This will install the appropriate version of the bioconductor packages
for your version of R.

Also, if you're not "stuck" on R-2.13.x for any particular reason, you
might as well update to the latest/greatest, which is R-2.14.0, then
do the biocLite dance.
