Recently, I had to re-install all my R packages (R version 4.1.0 (2021-05-18) -- "Camp Pontanezen") and it turns out that "RDAVIDWebService" is not available anymore on Bioconductor:

package ‘RDAVIDWebService’ is not available for Bioconductor version '3.13'

Is there an another way to install it (couldn't find the files on the Bioconductor site to install the package manually) or is there another R package that allows to use the DAVID tool?


1 Answer 1


That package was deprecated in Bioconductor version 3.13 after several attempts to contact the package author/maintainer.

Your options include reverting back to Bioconductor version 3.12 or using one of the other options for GO/pathway enrichment analyses, e.g. topGO, enrichR, or clusterProfiler.
