Bayesian Network with R

I am trying to build a Bayesian network model. However I am unable to install a suitable package. Tried

gRain
,
bnlearn
and
Rgraphviz
for plotting. I have tried in R 2.15 and 3.2

Following are the error messages :

library(gRain)
Loading required package: gRbase
Loading required package: graph
Error: package ‘graph’ could not be loaded
In addition: Warning message:
In library(pkg, character.only = TRUE, logical.return = TRUE, lib.loc = lib.loc) :
there is no package called ‘graph’

> install.packages("graph")
Warning message:
package ‘graph’ is not available (for R version 2.15.3)


Same for R 3.2.1

> install.packages("graph")
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning message:
package ‘graph’ is not available (for R version 3.2.1)


> install.packages("Rgraphviz")
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session ---
Warning messages:

> install.packages("Rgraphviz")
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)

Answer

The packagesgraph, RBGL and Rgraphviz are not on CRAN but on bioconductor.

To install these packages, execute

source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite(c("graph", "RBGL", "Rgraphviz"))

Then install the packages from CRAN in the usual way:

install.packages("gRain", dependencies=TRUE)

See also the gRain installation instructions.
