R.methodsS3

cran
98th

Percentile

Methods that simplify the setup of S3 generic functions and S3 methods. Major effort has been made in making definition of methods as simple as possible with a minimum of maintenance for package developers. For example, generic functions are created automatically, if missing, and naming conflict are automatically solved, if possible. The method setMethodS3() is a good start for those who in the future may want to migrate to S4. This is a cross-platform package implemented in pure R that generates standard S3 methods.

matrixStats

cran
98th

Percentile

High-performing functions operating on rows and columns of matrices, e.g. col / rowMedians(), col / rowRanks(), and col / rowSds(). Functions optimized per data type and for subsetted calculations such that both memory usage and processing time is minimized. There are also optimized vector-based methods, e.g. binMeans(), madDiff() and weightedMedian().

R.utils

cran
98th

Percentile

Utility functions useful when programming and developing R packages.

R.oo

cran
98th

Percentile

Methods and classes for object-oriented programming in R with or without references. Large effort has been made on making definition of methods as simple as possible with a minimum of maintenance for package developers. The package has been developed since 2001 and is now considered very stable. This is a cross-platform package implemented in pure R that defines standard S3 classes without any tricks.

globals

cran
97th

Percentile

Identifies global ("unknown" or "free") objects in R expressions by code inspection using various strategies, e.g. conservative or liberal. The objective of this package is to make it as simple as possible to identify global objects for the purpose of exporting them in distributed compute environments.

listenv

cran
97th

Percentile

List environments are environments that have list-like properties. For instance, the elements of a list environment are ordered and can be accessed and iterated over using index subsetting, e.g. 'x <- listenv(a = 1, b = 2); for (i in seq_along(x)) x[[i]] <- x[[i]] ^ 2; y <- as.list(x)'.

future

cran
96th

Percentile

The purpose of this package is to provide a lightweight and unified Future API for sequential and parallel processing of R expression via futures. The simplest way to evaluate an expression in parallel is to use x %<-% { expression } with plan(multiprocess). This package implements sequential, multicore, multisession, and cluster futures. With these, R expressions can be evaluated on the local machine, in parallel a set of local machines, or distributed on a mix of local and remote machines. Extensions to this package implement additional backends for processing futures via compute cluster schedulers etc. Because of its unified API, there is no need to modify any code in order switch from sequential on the local machine to, say, distributed processing on a remote compute cluster. Another strength of this package is that global variables and functions are automatically identified and exported as needed, making it straightforward to tweak existing code to make use of futures.

R.rsp

cran
96th

Percentile

The RSP markup language makes any text-based document come alive. RSP provides a powerful markup for controlling the content and output of LaTeX, HTML, Markdown, AsciiDoc, Sweave and knitr documents (and more), e.g. 'Today's date is <%=Sys.Date()%>'. Contrary to many other literate programming languages, with RSP it is straightforward to loop over mixtures of code and text sections, e.g. in month-by-month summaries. RSP has also several preprocessing directives for incorporating static and dynamic contents of external files (local or online) among other things. Functions rstring() and rcat() make it easy to process RSP strings, rsource() sources an RSP file as it was an R script, while rfile() compiles it (even online) into its final output format, e.g. rfile('report.tex.rsp') generates 'report.pdf' and rfile('report.md.rsp') generates 'report.html'. RSP is ideal for self-contained scientific reports and R package vignettes. It's easy to use - if you know how to write an R script, you'll be up and running within minutes.

future.apply

cran
95th

Percentile

Implementations of apply(), eapply(), lapply(), Map(), mapply(), replicate(), sapply(), tapply(), and vapply() that can be resolved using any future-supported backend, e.g. parallel on the local machine or distributed on a compute cluster. These future_*apply() functions come with the same pros and cons as the corresponding base-R *apply() functions but with the additional feature of being able to be processed via the future framework.

R.cache

cran
95th

Percentile

Memoization can be used to speed up repetitive and computational expensive function calls. The first time a function that implements memoization is called the results are stored in a cache memory. The next time the function is called with the same set of parameters, the results are momentarily retrieved from the cache avoiding repeating the calculations. With this package, any R object can be cached in a key-value storage where the key can be an arbitrary set of R objects. The cache memory is persistent (on the file system).

R.matlab

github
95th

Percentile

Methods readMat() and writeMat() for reading and writing MAT files. For user with MATLAB v6 or newer installed (either locally or on a remote host), the package also provides methods for controlling MATLAB (trademark) via R and sending and retrieving data between R and MATLAB.

R.devices

cran
94th

Percentile

Functions for creating plots and image files in a unified way regardless of output format (EPS, PDF, PNG, SVG, TIFF, WMF, etc.). Default device options as well as scales and aspect ratios are controlled in a uniform way across all device types. Switching output format requires minimal changes in code. This package is ideal for large-scale batch processing, because it will never leave open graphics devices or incomplete image files behind, even on errors or user interrupts.

future.batchtools

cran
91th

Percentile

Implementation of the Future API on top of the 'batchtools' package. This allows you to process futures, as defined by the 'future' package, in parallel out of the box, not only on your local machine or ad-hoc cluster of machines, but also via high-performance compute ('HPC') job schedulers such as 'LSF', 'OpenLava', 'Slurm', 'SGE', and 'TORQUE' / 'PBS', e.g. 'y <- future.apply::future_lapply(files, FUN = process)'.

PSCBS

cran
89th

Percentile

Segmentation of allele-specific DNA copy number data and detection of regions with abnormal copy number within each parental chromosome. Both tumor-normal paired and tumor-only analyses are supported.

R.filesets

cran
88th

Percentile

A file set refers to a set of files located in one or more directories on the file system. This package provides classes and methods to locate, setup, subset, navigate and iterate such sets. The API is designed such that these classes can be extended via inheritance to provide a richer API for special file formats. Moreover, a specific name format is defined such that filenames and directories can be considered to have full names which consists of a name followed by comma-separated tags. This adds additional flexibility to identify file sets and individual files. NOTE: This package's API should be considered to be in an beta stage. Its main purpose is currently to support the aroma.* packages, where it is one of the main core components; if you decide to build on top of this package, please contact the author first.

aroma.affymetrix

cran
88th

Percentile

A cross-platform R framework that facilitates processing of any number of Affymetrix microarray samples regardless of computer system. The only parameter that limits the number of chips that can be processed is the amount of available disk space. The Aroma Framework has successfully been used in studies to process tens of thousands of arrays. This package has actively been used since 2006.

aroma.core

cran
87th

Percentile

Core methods and classes used by higher-level 'aroma.*' packages part of the Aroma Project, e.g. 'aroma.affymetrix' and 'aroma.cn'.

aroma.apd

cran
86th

Percentile

DEPRECATED. Do not start building new projects based on this package. (The (in-house) APD file format was initially developed to store Affymetrix probe-level data, e.g. normalized CEL intensities. Chip types can be added to APD file and similar to methods in the affxparser package, this package provides methods to read APDs organized by units (probesets). In addition, the probe elements can be arranged optimally such that the elements are guaranteed to be read in order when, for instance, data is read unit by unit. This speeds up the read substantially. This package is supporting the Aroma framework and should not be used elsewhere.)

R.huge

cran
86th

Percentile

DEPRECATED. Do not start building new projects based on this package. Cross-platform alternatives are the following packages: bigmemory (CRAN), ff (CRAN), BufferedMatrix (Bioconductor). The main usage of it was inside the aroma.affymetrix package. (The package currently provides a class representing a matrix where the actual data is stored in a binary format on the local file system. This way the size limit of the data is set by the file system and not the memory.)

doFuture

cran
85th

Percentile

Provides a '%dopar%' adaptor such that any type of futures can be used as backends for the 'foreach' framework.

profmem

cran
81th

Percentile

A simple and light-weight API for memory profiling of R expressions. The profiling is built on top of R's built-in memory profiler ('utils::Rprofmem()'), which records every memory allocation done by R (also native code).

startup

cran
79th

Percentile

Adds support for R startup configuration via '.Renviron.d' and '.Rprofile.d' directories in addition to '.Renviron' and '.Rprofile' files. This makes it possible to keep private / secret environment variables separate from other environment variables. It also makes it easier to share specific startup settings by simply copying a file to a directory.

ACNE

cran
75th

Percentile

A summarization method to estimate allele-specific copy number signals for Affymetrix SNP microarrays using non-negative matrix factorization (NMF).

future.BatchJobs

cran
71th

Percentile

Implementation of the Future API on top of the 'BatchJobs' package. This allows you to process futures, as defined by the 'future' package, in parallel out of the box, not only on your local machine or ad-hoc cluster of machines, but also via high-performance compute ('HPC') job schedulers such as 'LSF', 'OpenLava', 'Slurm', 'SGE', and 'TORQUE' / 'PBS', e.g. 'y <- future.apply::future_lapply(files, FUN = process)'. NOTE: The 'BatchJobs' package is deprecated in favor of the 'batchtools' package. Because of this, it is recommended to use the 'future.batchtools' package instead of this package.

aroma.cn

cran
66th

Percentile

Methods for analyzing DNA copy-number data. Specifically, this package implements the multi-source copy-number normalization (MSCN) method for normalizing copy-number data obtained on various platforms and technologies. It also implements the TumorBoost method for normalizing paired tumor-normal SNP data.

calmate

cran

Percentile

A multi-array post-processing method of allele-specific copy-number estimates (ASCNs).

future.callr

cran
66th

Percentile

Implementation of the Future API on top of the 'callr' package. This allows you to process futures, as defined by the 'future' package, in parallel out of the box, on your local (Linux, macOS, Windows, ...) machine. Contrary to backends relying on the 'parallel' package (e.g. 'future::multisession'), the 'callr' backend provided here can run more than 125 parallel R processes.

covr

cran
98th

Percentile

Track and report code coverage for your package and (optionally) upload the results to a coverage service like 'Codecov' <http://codecov.io> or 'Coveralls' <http://coveralls.io>. Code coverage is a measure of the amount of code being exercised by a set of tests. It is an indirect measure of test quality and completeness. This package is compatible with any testing methodology or framework and tracks coverage of both R code and compiled C/C++/FORTRAN code.

BatchJobs

cran
94th

Percentile

Provides Map, Reduce and Filter variants to generate jobs on batch computing systems like PBS/Torque, LSF, SLURM and Sun Grid Engine. Multicore and SSH systems are also supported. For further details see the project web page.

BrailleR

cran
81th

Percentile

Blind users do not have access to the graphical output from R without printing the content of graphics windows to an embosser of some kind. This is not as immediate as is required for efficient access to statistical output. The functions here are created so that blind people can make even better use of R. This includes the text descriptions of graphs, convenience functions to replace the functionality offered in many GUI front ends, and experimental functionality for optimising graphical content to prepare it for embossing as tactile images.

affxparser

bioconductor
18th

Percentile

Package for parsing Affymetrix files (CDF, CEL, CHP, BPMAP, BAR). It provides methods for fast and memory efficient parsing of Affymetrix files using the Affymetrix' Fusion SDK. Both ASCII- and binary-based files are supported. Currently, there are methods for reading chip definition file (CDF) and a cell intensity file (CEL). These files can be read either in full or in part. For example, probe signals from a few probesets can be extracted very quickly from a set of CEL files into a convenient list structure.
