A function for plotting maps of agricultural field experiments that are laid out in grids.

Create biplots for GGE (genotype plus genotype-by-environment) and GGB (genotype plus genotype-by-block-of-environments) models.

Principal Components Analysis of a matrix using Non-linear Iterative Partial Least Squares with Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization of the scores and loadings. Optimized for speed. See Andrecut (2009) <doi:10.1089/cmb.2008.0221>.

Lattice functions for drawing folded empirical cumulative distribution plots, or mountain plots. A mountain plot is similar to an empirical CDF plot, except that the curve increases from 0 to 0.5, then decreases from 0.5 to 1 using an inverted scale at the right side.

Estimate the percentage of seeds in a seedlot that contain stacks of genetically modified traits. Estimates are calculated using a multinomial group testing model with maximum likelihood estimation of the parameters.

Datasets from books, papers, and websites related to agriculture. Example graphics and analyses are included. Data come from small-plot trials, multi-environment trials, uniformity trials, yield monitors, and more.

Calculates correlation of variables and displays the results graphically. Included panel functions can display points, shading, ellipses, and correlation values with confidence intervals. See Friendly (2002) <doi:10.1198/000313002533>.

Print vectors (and data frames) of floating point numbers using a non-scientific format optimized for human readers. Vectors of numbers are rounded using significant digits, aligned at the decimal point, and all zeros trailing the decimal point are dropped. See: Wright (2016). Lucid: An R Package for Pretty-Printing Floating Point Numbers. In JSM Proceedings, Statistical Computing Section. Alexandria, VA: American Statistical Association. 2270-2279.

A platform-independent basic-statistics GUI (graphical user interface) for R, based on the tcltk package.

Provides Bayesian PCA, Probabilistic PCA, Nipals PCA, Inverse Non-Linear PCA and the conventional SVD PCA. A cluster based method for missing value estimation is included for comparison. BPCA, PPCA and NipalsPCA may be used to perform PCA on incomplete data as well as for accurate missing value estimation. A set of methods for printing and plotting the results is also provided. All PCA methods make use of the same data structure (pcaRes) to provide a common interface to the PCA results. Initiated at the Max-Planck Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology, Golm, Germany.
