packages and files by Chris Brien
The following R packages and related files can
be downloaded from this site.
- dae_2.7-23.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 5th January 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 fac.layout to produce randomized layout for experiments. The package is
also available from CRAN (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/dae/index.html).
However, the version here may be a little newer than that on CRAN.
- asremlPlus_4.0-05.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 19th March 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 a little newer than that on CRAN. For a
b-release of ASReml-R version 4, you
must contact VSNi (http://www.vsni.co.uk/).
– 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.
– The imageData package is a collection of R
functions that Aids
in Processing and Plotting Data from a Lemna-Tec
updated 20th March 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. These functions should be considered to be development
versions that may change over time.
- sundry_2.4-1.zip –
The sundry package is a collection of useful R functions (last updated
11th November 2014). It is described in sundry-manual.pdf, which is also found in
the sundry\doc directory where the package is installed.

for randomizing and assessing the properties of both
standard and multiphase experimental designs
A workshop was conducted on the design and
analysis of both standard and multiphase experimental designs at The
International Biometric Society Australasian Region Conference, Hobart,
Australia in November 2015. Three computing sessions were designed that
used dae to randomize and assess the properties of these designs. The
notes for the computing sessions can be downloaded by clicking on the
following links: notes without output and notes with output and solutions. The
notes also show how to use ASReml-R, a commercial R
package, and asremlPlus to analyse the data
from such experiments. If you do not have a license for ASReml-R,
you can still undertake the design aspects.
You will also need the data sets for both the
design and analysis facets and these are available in Workshop2015.zip.
any package on a workstation
Download the zip file and use the R command install.packages(repos=NULL, pkgs="path\\file.zip") where path is the path to the folder where you saved the zip file and file is
the name of the zip file.
