package 'pull' is not available for this version of R

Please help! This is the error I am getting and I am not sure how to work around this

Bioconductor version 3.12 (BiocManager 1.30.10), R 4.0.3 (2020-10-10)
Installing package(s) 'pull'
Warning message:
package 'pull' is not available for this version of R

Acquire the S phase genes

s_genes <- cell_cycle_markers %>%

  • dplyr::filter(phase == "S") %>%
  • pull("gene_name")
    Error in pull(., "gene_name") : could not find function "pull"

pull() is a function in the dplyr package.


dplyr::filter(phase == "S") %>%

These aren't workarounds really, just a matter of finding out in which R package these functions live in. Once we know which package contains the function we need (e.g. CellCycleSorting()), we can use this function in one of two ways:

# Load the functions in a package

# Or access the function inside the package directly using ::

I am not familiar with the function CellCycleSorting(), so you will need to find out which package contains this function and use one of the approaches described above.

Thank you that worked!!

The next step of my code is to use the function CellCycleSorting? Is there a similar work around?
