R packages and files by Chris Brien

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

  • 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 8th December 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.

Windows binary: dae_3.0-13.zip; Package source: dae_3.0-13.tar.gz.

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.

  • The asremlPlus package is a collection of R functions to augment the use of ASReml-R in fitting mixed models (last updated 29th December 2017). This version  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 latest version of the package is available from GitHub (https://github.com/briencj/asremlPlus).

The package is also be available from CRAN (https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/asremlPlus/index.html). However, the version on CRAN may not be the latest version.

The final version of asremlPlus that was produced specifically for ASReml-R version 3 is version 2.0-13.  It 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.

Windows binary: asremlPlus_2.0-13.zip.

  • The imageData package is a collection of R functions that Aids in Processing and Plotting Data from a Lemna-Tec Scananalyzer (last updated 16th February 2018). 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.

Windows binary: imageData_0.1-47.zip; Package source: imageData_0.1-47.tar.gz.
