simSummary is a small utility package which eases the process of summarizing simulation results. Simulations often produce intermediate results - some focal statistics that need to be summarized over several scenarios and many replications. This step is in principle easy, but tedious. The package simSummary fills this niche by providing a generic way of summarizing the focal statistics of simulations. The useR must provide properly structured input, holding focal statistics, and then the summary step can be performed with one line of code, calling the simSummary function.
Functions to Accompany J. Fox and S. Weisberg, An R Companion to Applied Regression, Third Edition, Sage, in press.
Various R programming tools for data manipulation, including: - medical unit conversions ('ConvertMedUnits', 'MedUnits'), - combining objects ('bindData', 'cbindX', 'combine', 'interleave'), - character vector operations ('centerText', 'startsWith', 'trim'), - factor manipulation ('levels', 'reorder.factor', 'mapLevels'), - obtaining information about R objects ('object.size', 'elem', 'env', 'humanReadable', 'is.what', 'll', 'keep', 'ls.funs', 'Args','nPairs', 'nobs'), - manipulating MS-Excel formatted files ('read.xls', 'installXLSXsupport', 'sheetCount', 'xlsFormats'), - generating fixed-width format files ('write.fwf'), - extricating components of date & time objects ('getYear', 'getMonth', 'getDay', 'getHour', 'getMin', 'getSec'), - operations on columns of data frames ('matchcols', 'rename.vars'), - matrix operations ('unmatrix', 'upperTriangle', 'lowerTriangle'), - operations on vectors ('case', 'unknownToNA', 'duplicated2', 'trimSum'), - operations on data frames ('frameApply', 'wideByFactor'), - value of last evaluated expression ('ans'), and - wrapper for 'sample' that ensures consistent behavior for both scalar and vector arguments ('resample').
Fully-interactive R interface to the 'OpenBUGS' software for Bayesian analysis using MCMC sampling. Runs natively and stably in 32-bit R under Windows. Versions running on Linux and on 64-bit R under Windows are in "beta" status and less efficient.
The successor to the 'AlphaSim' software for breeding program simulation (Faux et al., 2016, <doi:10.3835/plantgenome2016.02.0013>). Used for stochastic simulations of breeding programs to the level of DNA sequence for every individual. Contained is a wide range of functions for modeling common tasks in a breeding program, such as selection and crossing. These functions allow for constructing simulations of highly complex plant and animal breeding programs via scripting in the R software environment. Such simulations can be used to evaluate overall breeding program performance and conduct research into breeding program design, such as implementation of genomic selection. Included is the 'Markovian Coalescent Simulator' ('MaCS') for fast simulation of biallelic sequences according to a population demographic history (Chen et al., 2009, <doi:10.1101/gr.083634.108>).
Classes and methods for handling pedigree data. It also includes functions to calculate genetic relationship measures as relationship and inbreeding coefficients and other utilities. Note that package is not yet stable. Use it with care!
