Package {dartR} is an R package for loading DArT SNP and SilicoDArT data.

FSP leader Olly Berry collaborated with colleagues at the University of Canberra to develop a new R software package “dartR” designed to ease the pain experienced by many when dealing with datasets up to three orders of magnitude larger than what was typical just a few years ago.

A pre-print is available on the Molecular Ecology Resources website, and the package along with detailed tutorial is available on the CRAN website.
