Single cell packages and dependencies in Bioconductor using BiocPkgTools

The Bioconductor package ecosystem continues to grow at an exponential rate (check it–I am right). We have recently completed the BiocPkgtools package that can mine package metadata, build reports, dependencies and can produce interesting plots of package dependencies. I was recently asked about the dependency structure of packages labeled by the package authors (using biocViews) as “SingleCell”. I am posting the code here, just for fun.
