Introducing the CORE interface for the R programming language

The R programming language has come a long way from being mainly a data analysis powerhouse (R is a descendant of Bell Lab’s S language) to a general purpose language with the powerful features that we know today.

CORE and R have not been total strangers; the first release of the “rcore” package in February 2016 from rOpenSci provided the R users with an interface for CORE’s API. rOpenSci works towards providing access to data repositories through R and promotes maintainable and reproducible tools for scientific methods and analyses.
