Hi All,
    I'm a big fan and heavy user of BSgenome. I work on a 64-bit PC  
running wondows 7. I want to analyse a few primate genomes using  
BSgenome. The newly released orangutan genome is not currently  
available in BSgenome. My questions:

1. Is it possible to request a genome to be added to BSgenomes, and is  
this the correct place to make that request?

2. If i must add the genome myself as descibed in the 'How to forge a  
BSgenome data package' document, will the genome I forge on unix linux  
machine be usable on my PC? If not, can I forge a genome on my PC?

I apologise if these questions have been raised and answered  
previously, I did spend a lot of time looking for appropriate answers  
before emailing this list. Thanks in advance, and thanks for BSgenome.

Kindest regards,
Colm Nestor
