biocLite installs in the R library directory on the server. And I don't
have directory permission to install anything on the server. The system
admins told me that if I want any R libraries installed, I had to
install them myself in my home directory. Hence, my question. I agree
that it would be easier with biocLite().
Any ideas what repository to use to get the annotation files?
