R packages and files by Chris Brien

The following R packages and related files can be downloaded from this site.

  • dae_3.0-11.zip The dae package of R functions has been developed to facilitate the use of R for the design and analysis of variance of experiments (last updated 22nd October 2017). It is described in dae-manual.pdf, which is also found in the dae\doc directory where the package is installed. Also found in this directory is a vignette describing the how to use designRandomize to produce randomized layout for experiments and designAnatomy to assessing the properties of designs. It covers both standard and multiphase experimental designs. The data sets that go with the vignette are available in dae. The package is also available from CRAN (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/dae/index.html). However, the version here may be somewhat newer than that on CRAN.
  • asremlPlus_4.0-16.zip The asremlPlus package is a collection of R functions to augment the use of ASReml-R in fitting mixed models. This is a b-release (last updated 20th November 2017), which is compatible with both ASReml-R versions 3 and 4. ASReml-R version 4 is currently undergoing b-testing and has some changes in syntax that necessitate changes in asremlPlus. This version of asremlPlus is a major revamp of the package and also includes substantial syntax changes. For more information install the package and run the R command news(package = asremlPlus) or consult the manual. An overview can be obtained using ?asremlPlus. The package will also be made available from CRAN (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/asremlPlus/index.html). However, the version here may be somewhat newer than that on CRAN. For a b-release of ASReml-R version 4, you must contact VSNi (http://www.vsni.co.uk/).
  • asremlPlus_2.0-13.zip The asremlPlus package is a collection of R functions to augment the use of asreml in fitting mixed models (this version last updated 26th September 2016). This is the final version of asremlPlus that was produced specifically for ASReml-R version 3 and is no longer being developed. It is described in asremlPlus.pdf, which also found in the asremlPlus\doc directory where the package is installed. An overview can be obtained using ?asremlPlus.
  • imageData_0.1-40.zip The imageData package is a collection of R functions that Aids in Processing and Plotting Data from a Lemna-Tec Scananalyzer (last updated 31st August 2017). It is described in imageData-manual.pdf, which also found in the imageData\doc directory where the package is installed. An overview can be obtained using ?imageData. The functions can be applied selectively to longitudinal data in general.
