Contributing

We very much appreciate contributions to the Bioconductor community blog from the broader community. If you are interested in publishing some of your own work or insights, we’d love to hear from you!

Articles posted on the Bioconductor community blog are authored using Quarto. The way to contribute a new article is as follows:

  1. Create a fork of the biocblog repository on GitHub. And Git clone it to your local environment!

  2. Install RStudio and double click the biocblog.Rproj file in the cloned repo. The latest release of RStudio (v2022.07 at this point) includes support for editing and preview of Quarto documents.

  3. Create a new qmd file in your RStudio, and check the content with clicking Preview Website button under the Build tab!

  4. When you’re done, please git commit the raw qmd plus any static files you might have added to the post’s source directory. Don’t commit any generated files, such as html.

  5. Send a Pull Request requesting that we accept your article!

Once we see your Pull Request we’ll take a look at your article, suggest changes as necessary, then publish it when it’s ready.
