The depmap package facilitates access in the R environment for data from the Depmap project, which maps genetic and chemical dependencies, and other molecular biological features for over 1700 cancer cell lines. The depmap package formats this data for use of popular R data analysis and visualization tools such as dplyr and ggplot2 In addition, the depmap package utilizes ExperimentHub, storing versions of Depmap data accessible from the cloud, providing a reproducible research framework to support exploration.
