[R] you are making it far too difficult

I downloaded the Donors dataset
by clicking "Export table as TSV".
Then I read it with
donors <- read.delim("~/Downloads/donors_2018_12_27_03_52_03.tsv")
Here is the transcript.

I don't know how to get the download of the whole file. It looks like you
could page through it with the page menu at the bottom of the webpage. If
you do that, set it for 50 at a time instead of the default 10.
For the Genes and the two types of Mutation files, it will be more nuisance
this way because there are about 10000 rows for each of those three files,
thus about 200 of these statements per dataset.
I think it is time to move to the bioconductor list for specific guidance
on this type of dataset.
