I just started to toy around with the new BioC dockers out of curiosity.
As I pulled down the release_core image (running boot2docker under OS X

docker run -ti bioconductor/release_core R

and then executed

> library(AnnotationHub)
> hub <- AnnotationHub()

I received the following error:

Error in file(con, "r") : cannot open the connection
In addition: Warning message:
In file(con, "r") : unable to resolve 'annotationhub.bioconductor.org'

BTW: are the docker scripts that were used to create the bioc dockers under


somewhere available?

I guess this would be nice for developers to get an idea how to create
their own containers (with a choosen selection of packages different from
the provided ones ...)

Thx & Best,
