2019-04-14: bowtie2-2.3.5-1 (Ultrafast memory-efficient short read aligner)
An ultrafast and memory-efficient tool for aligning sequencing reads 
to long reference sequences. It is particularly good at aligning reads 
of about 50 up to 100s or 1,000s of characters, and particularly good 
at aligning to relatively long (e.g. mammalian) genomes. 

Bowtie 2 indexes the genome with an FM Index to keep its memory footprint
small: for the human genome, its memory footprint is typically 
around 3.2 GB. Bowtie 2 supports gapped, local, and paired-end alignment modes.

2019-04-13: cran-rcpparmadillo-r34-0.9.300.2.0-1 (Rcpp integration for Armadillo)
R and Armadillo integration using Rcpp Armadillo is a templated
C++ linear algebra library (by Conrad Sanderson) that aims towards
a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer, floating
point and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of
trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions
are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS
libraries. A delayed evaluation approach is employed (during compile
time) to combine several operations into one, and to reduce (or
eliminate) the need for temporaries. This is accomplished through
recursive templates and template meta-programming. This library is
useful if C++ has been decided as the language of choice (due
to speed and/or integration capabilities), rather than another
language. The RcppArmadillo package includes the header files
from the templated Armadillo library. Thus users do not need to
install Armadillo itself in order to use RcppArmadillo. This
Armadillo integration provides a nice illustration of the
capabilities of the Rcpp package for seamless R and C++
integration. Armadillo is licensed under the MPL 2.0, while
RcppArmadillo (the Rcpp bindings/bridge to Armadillo) is
licensed under the GNU GPL version 2 or later, as is the
rest of Rcpp.

2019-04-13: cran-ape-r33-3.5-2 (Analyses of Phylogenetics and Evolution)
ape provides functions for reading, writing, plotting, and manipulating
phylogenetic trees, analyses of comparative data in a phylogenetic
framework, ancestral character analyses, analyses of diversification
and macroevolution, computing distances from allelic and nucleotide data,
reading and writing nucleotide sequences, and several tools such as
Mantel's test, generalized skyline plots, graphical exploration of
phylogenetic data (alex, trex, kronoviz), estimation of absolute
evolutionary rates and clock-like trees using mean path lengths and
penalized likelihood. Phylogeny estimation can be done with the NJ,
BIONJ, ME, MVR, SDM, and triangle methods, and several methods
handling incomplete distance matrices (NJ*, BIONJ*, MVR*, and the
corresponding triangle method). Some functions call external 
applications (PhyML, Clustal, T-Coffee, Muscle) whose results are
returned into R.

with layers, collages, or animation. In RStudio images are automatically
previewed when printed to the console, resulting in an interactive
editing environment. The latest version of the package includes a native
graphics device for creating in-memory graphics or drawing onto images
using pixel coordinates.

Alternating least squares is often used to resolve components contributing
to data with a bilinear structure; the basic technique may be extended to
alternating constrained least squares. Commonly applied constraints include
unimodality, non-negativity, and normalization of components. Several data
matrices may be decomposed simultaneously by assuming that one of the two
matrices in the bilinear decomposition is shared between datasets.

2019-04-13: bioconductor-qvalue-r31-2.6.0-1 (Q-value estimation)
This package takes a list of p-values resulting from the simultaneous
testing of many hypotheses and estimates their q-values and local FDR
values. The q-value of a test measures the proportion of false positives
incurred (called the false discovery rate) when that particular test is
called significant. The local FDR measures the posterior probability
the null hypothesis is true given the test's p-value. Various plots
are automatically generated, allowing one to make sensible significance
cut-offs. Several mathematical results have recently been shown on the
conservative accuracy of the estimated q-values from this software.
The software can be applied to problems in genomics, brain imaging,
astrophysics, and data mining.

2019-04-13: cran-gwidgetstcltk-r33-0.0-55-1 (Toolkit implementation of gWidgets for tcltk)
Port of the gWidgets API to the tcltk package. Requires TK 8.5 or
greater for the tile (ttk)widgets http://www.tcl.tk/software/tcltk/8.5.tml.
This is the default on Windows. Under linux, Tk must be installed.
Under Mac OS X (10.5) there are two options: native Tk or X11.
For the native one, Tk must be upgraded. See www.tcl.tk to download
source. Under the Mac it compiles and installs cleanly. For X11,
tcltk libraries can be downloaded to augment the R binary package.
See http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/tools/. The gdf function
requires the add on Tk package TkTable (http://tktable.sourceforge.net/).

The R6 package allows the creation of classes with reference semantics,
similar to R's built-in reference classes. Compared to reference classes,
R6 classes are simpler and lighter-weight, and they are not built on S4
classes so they do not require the methods package. These classes allow
public and private members, and they support inheritance, even when the
classes are defined in different packages.

plyr is a set of tools that solves a common set of problems: you need to
break a big problem down into manageable pieces, operate on each pieces
and then put all the pieces back together. For example, you might want
to fit a model to each spatial location or time point in your study, 
summarise data by panels or collapse high-dimensional arrays to simpler
summary statistics. The development of plyr has been generously supported
by BD (Becton Dickinson).

The 'permute' package implements a set of restricted permutation designs
for freely exchangeable, line transects (time series), and spatial grid
designs plus permutation of blocks (groups of samples). 'permute' also
allows split-plot designs, in which the whole-plots or split-plots or
both can be freely-exchangeable or one of the restricted designs. The
'permute' package is modelled after the permutation schemes of Canoco
3.1 (and later) by Cajo ter Braak.

2019-04-13: cran-markdown-r35-0.9-1 (GNU R Tools for making web reports from text)
R Markdown is a format that enables easy authoring of reproducible 
web reports from R. It combines the core syntax of Markdown 
(an easy-to-write plain text format for web content) with embedded 
R code chunks that are run so their output can be included in 
the final document.

The concept of R Markdown is similar to Sweave (a system built-in 
to R for combining R with LaTeX). In Sweave, Rnw files are "weaved" 
into TeX files that are then compiled into PDFs. In R Markdown, 
Rmd files are similarly "weaved" into plain markdown (.md) files 
that are then compiled into HTML documents.

The "care" package implements the regression approach of Zuber and
Strimmer (2011) "High-dimensional regression and variable selection
using CAR scores" SAGMB 10: 34. CAR scores measure the correlation
between the response and the Mahalanobis-decorrelated predictors.
The squared CAR score is a natural measure of variable importance
and provides a canonical ordering of variables. This package
provides functions for estimating CAR scores, for variable
selection using CAR scores, and for estimating corresponding
regression coefficients. Both shrinkage as well as empirical
estimators are available.

R and Eigen integration using Rcpp. Eigen is a C++ template library
for linear algebra: matrices, vectors, numerical solvers and related
algorithms. It supports dense and sparse matrices on integer,
floating point and complex numbers, decompositions of such matrices,
and solutions of linear systems. Its performance on many algorithms
is comparable with some of the best implementations based on Lapack
and level-3 BLAS. The RcppEigen package includes the header files
from the Eigen C++ template library (currently version 3.2.0).
Thus users do not need to install Eigen itself in order to use
RcppEigen. Since version 3.1.1, Eigen is licensed under the
Mozilla Public License (version 2); earlier version were licensed
under the GNU LGPL version 3 or later. RcppEigen (the Rcpp
bindings/bridge to Eigen) is licensed under the GNU GPL version 2
 or later, as is the rest of Rcpp.

2019-04-13: cran-cairo-r35-1.5-9-2 (Graphics device using cairo graphics library)
This package provides a Cairo graphics device that can be use to
create high-quality vector (PDF, PostScript and SVG) and bitmap output
(PNG,JPEG,TIFF), and high-quality rendering in displays (X11 and Win32).
Since it uses the same back-end for all output, copying across formats
is WYSIWYG. Files are created without the dependence on X11 or other
external programs. This device supports alpha channel (semi-transparent
drawing) and resulting images can contain transparent and semi-transparent
regions. It is ideal for use in server environments (file output) and as
a replacement for other devices that don't have Cairo's capabilities
such as alpha support or anti-aliasing. Backends are modular such that
any subset of backends is supported.

2019-04-13: cran-rcpparmadillo-r33-0.9.300.2.0-1 (Rcpp integration for Armadillo)
R and Armadillo integration using Rcpp Armadillo is a templated
C++ linear algebra library (by Conrad Sanderson) that aims towards
a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer, floating
point and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of
trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions
are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS
libraries. A delayed evaluation approach is employed (during compile
time) to combine several operations into one, and to reduce (or
eliminate) the need for temporaries. This is accomplished through
recursive templates and template meta-programming. This library is
useful if C++ has been decided as the language of choice (due
to speed and/or integration capabilities), rather than another
language. The RcppArmadillo package includes the header files
from the templated Armadillo library. Thus users do not need to
install Armadillo itself in order to use RcppArmadillo. This
Armadillo integration provides a nice illustration of the
capabilities of the Rcpp package for seamless R and C++
integration. Armadillo is licensed under the MPL 2.0, while
RcppArmadillo (the Rcpp bindings/bridge to Armadillo) is
licensed under the GNU GPL version 2 or later, as is the
rest of Rcpp.

2019-04-13: bioconductor-globalancova-r34-3.42.0-1 (Global test for differential gene expression)
We give the following arguments in support of the GlobalAncova approach: After
appropriate normalisation, gene-expression-data appear rather symmetrical and
outliers are no real problem, so least squares should be rather robust. ANCOVA
with interaction yields saturated data modelling e.g. different means per group
and gene. Covariate adjustment can help to correct for possible selection bias.
Variance homogeneity and uncorrelated residuals cannot be expected. Application
of ordinary least squares gives unbiased, but no longer optimal estimates
(Gauss-Markov-Aitken). Therefore, using the classical F-test is inappropriate,
due to correlation. The test statistic however mirrors deviations from the null
hypothesis. In combination with a permutation approach, empirical significance
levels can be approximated. Alternatively, an approximation yields asymptotic
p-values. This work was supported by the NGFN grant 01 GR 0459, BMBF, Germany.

2019-04-13: cran-speaq-r34-2.0.0-1 (NMR Spectrum Alignment Tools)
We introduce a novel suite of informatics tools for the quantitative analysis
of NMR metabolomic profile data. The core of the processing cascade is a novel
peak alignment algorithm, called hierarchical Cluster-based Peak Alignment
(CluPA). The algorithm aligns a target spectrum to the reference spectrum in
a top-down fashion by building a hierarchical cluster tree from peak lists of
reference and target spectra and then dividing the spectra into smaller
segments based on the most distant clusters of the tree. To reduce the
computational time to estimate the spectral misalignment, the method makes
use of Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) cross-correlation. Since the method
returns a high-quality alignment, we can propose a simple methodology to study
the variability of the NMR spectra. For each aligned NMR data point the ratio
of the between-group and within-group sum of squares (BW-ratio) is calculated
to quantify the difference in variability between and within predefined groups
of NMR spectra. This differential analysis is related to the calculation of
the F-statistic or a one-way ANOVA, but without distributional assumptions.
Statistical inference based on the BW-ratio is achieved by bootstrapping the
null distribution from the experimental data. Related publication is
available at http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/12/405/.

R and Eigen integration using Rcpp. Eigen is a C++ template library
for linear algebra: matrices, vectors, numerical solvers and related
algorithms. It supports dense and sparse matrices on integer,
floating point and complex numbers, decompositions of such matrices,
and solutions of linear systems. Its performance on many algorithms
is comparable with some of the best implementations based on Lapack

from the Eigen C++ template library (currently version 3.2.0).
Thus users do not need to install Eigen itself in order to use
RcppEigen. Since version 3.1.1, Eigen is licensed under the
Mozilla Public License (version 2); earlier version were licensed

public and private members, and they support inheritance, even when the
classes are defined in different packages.

    R-3.5 updates
2019-04-13: cran-brglm-r31-0.6.2-1 (Bias reduction in binomial-response)
Fit generalized linear models with binomial responses using either
an adjusted-score approach to bias reduction or maximum penalized
likelihood where penalization is by Jeffreys invariant prior.
These procedures return estimates with improved frequentist properties
(bias, mean squared error) that are always finite even in cases where
the maximum likelihood estimates are infinite (data separation).
Fitting takes place by fitting generalized linear models on iteratively
updated pseudo-data. The interface is essentially the same as 'glm'.
More flexibility is provided by the fact that custom pseudo-data
representations can be specified and used for model fitting. Functions
are provided for the construction of confidence intervals for the
reduced-bias estimates.

This package provides a Cairo graphics device that can be use to
create high-quality vector (PDF, PostScript and SVG) and bitmap output
(PNG,JPEG,TIFF), and high-quality rendering in displays (X11 and Win32).
Since it uses the same back-end for all output, copying across formats
is WYSIWYG. Files are created without the dependence on X11 or other
external programs. This device supports alpha channel (semi-transparent
drawing) and resulting images can contain transparent and semi-transparent
regions. It is ideal for use in server environments (file output) and as
a replacement for other devices that don't have Cairo's capabilities
such as alpha support or anti-aliasing. Backends are modular such that
any subset of backends is supported.

R Markdown is a format that enables easy authoring of reproducible

(an easy-to-write plain text format for web content) with embedded 
R code chunks that are run so their output can be included in 
the final document.

The concept of R Markdown is similar to Sweave (a system built-in 
to R for combining R with LaTeX). In Sweave, Rnw files are "weaved" 
into TeX files that are then compiled into PDFs. In R Markdown, 
Rmd files are similarly "weaved" into plain markdown (.md) files 
that are then compiled into HTML documents.

Functions to work with date-times and time-spans: fast and user friendly
parsing of date-time data, extraction and updating of components of a
date-time (years, months, days, hours, minutes, and seconds), algebraic
manipulation on date-time and time-span objects. The 'lubridate' package
has a consistent and memorable syntax that makes working with dates easy
and fun. Parts of the 'CCTZ' source code, released under the Apache 2.0

2019-04-13: cran-jsonlite-r34-1.6-1 (JSON Parser and Generator for R)
A fast JSON parser and generator optimized for statistical data and the web.
Started out as a fork of RJSONIO, but has been completely rewritten in
recent versions. The package offers flexible, robust, high performance
tools for working with JSON in R and is particularly powerful for building
pipelines and interacting with web APIs. The implementation is based on the
mapping described in the vignette of the package (Ooms, 2014). In addition
to drop-in replacements for toJSON and fromJSON, jsonlite contains functions
to stream, validate, and prettify JSON data. The unit tests included with
the package verify that all edge cases are encoded and decoded consistently
for use with dynamic data in systems and applications.

2019-04-13: cran-digest-r32-0.6.18-1 (GNU R Tools for string function wrappers)
The digest package provides a function 'digest()' for the creation of 
hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the md5, sha-1, sha-256 and 
crc32 algorithms) permitting easy comparison of R language objects, 
as well as a function 'hmac()' to create hash-based message 
authentication code. The md5 algorithm by Ron Rivest is specified in 
RFC 1321, the sha-1 and sha-256 algorithms are specified in FIPS-180-1 
and FIPS-180-2, and the crc32 algorithm is described in 
ftp://ftp.rocksoft.com/cliens/rocksoft/papers/crc_v3.txt. 
For md5, sha-1, sha-256 and aes, this package uses a small standalone 
implementations that were provided by Christophe Devine. 
For crc32, code from the zlib library is used. 
For sha-512, an implementation by Aaron D. Gifford is used. 
Please note that this package is not meant to be deployed for 
cryptographic purposes for which more comprehensive (and widely tested) 
libraries such as OpenSSL should be used.

approaches to save animations to various formats, e.g. Flash,
GIF, HTML pages, PDF and videos (saveSWF(), saveGIF(), saveHTML(),
saveLatex(), and saveVideo() respectively). PDF animations
can be inserted into Sweave/knitr easily.

    R-3.5 updates
2019-04-13: cran-permute-r33-0.9-4-1 (Generating restricted permutations of data)
The 'permute' package implements a set of restricted permutation designs
for freely exchangeable, line transects (time series), and spatial grid
designs plus permutation of blocks (groups of samples). 'permute' also
allows split-plot designs, in which the whole-plots or split-plots or
both can be freely-exchangeable or one of the restricted designs. The
'permute' package is modelled after the permutation schemes of Canoco
3.1 (and later) by Cajo ter Braak.

2019-04-13: cran-cairo-r33-1.5-9-2 (Graphics device using cairo graphics library)
This package provides a Cairo graphics device that can be use to
create high-quality vector (PDF, PostScript and SVG) and bitmap output
(PNG,JPEG,TIFF), and high-quality rendering in displays (X11 and Win32).
Since it uses the same back-end for all output, copying across formats
is WYSIWYG. Files are created without the dependence on X11 or other
external programs. This device supports alpha channel (semi-transparent
drawing) and resulting images can contain transparent and semi-transparent
regions. It is ideal for use in server environments (file output) and as
a replacement for other devices that don't have Cairo's capabilities
such as alpha support or anti-aliasing. Backends are modular such that
any subset of backends is supported.

2019-04-13: cran-foreach-r31-1.4.4-1 (Foreach looping construct for R)
Support for the foreach looping construct. Foreach is an idiom that
allows for iterating over elements in a collection, without the use
of an explicit loop counter. This package in particular is intended
to be used for its return value, rather than for its side effects.
In that sense, it is similar to the standard lapply function, but
doesn't require the evaluation of a function. Using foreach without
side effects also facilitates executing the loop in parallel.

2019-04-13: cran-rcppeigen-r32-0.3.3.5.0-1 (Rcpp Eigen templated linear algebra library)
R and Eigen integration using Rcpp. Eigen is a C++ template library
for linear algebra: matrices, vectors, numerical solvers and related
algorithms. It supports dense and sparse matrices on integer,
floating point and complex numbers, decompositions of such matrices,
and solutions of linear systems. Its performance on many algorithms
is comparable with some of the best implementations based on Lapack
and level-3 BLAS. The RcppEigen package includes the header files
from the Eigen C++ template library (currently version 3.2.0).
Thus users do not need to install Eigen itself in order to use
RcppEigen. Since version 3.1.1, Eigen is licensed under the
Mozilla Public License (version 2); earlier version were licensed
under the GNU LGPL version 3 or later. RcppEigen (the Rcpp
bindings/bridge to Eigen) is licensed under the GNU GPL version 2
 or later, as is the rest of Rcpp.

password-entry back-end for 'ssh-agent' or 'git-credential' via the
SSH_ASKPASS and GIT_ASKPASS environment variables. Thereby the user can
be prompted for credentials or a passphrase if needed when R calls out
to git or ssh.

perfectly perceptually-uniform, both in regular form and also when 
converted to black-and-white. They are also designed to be perceived by 
readers with the most common form of color blindness. This is the 'lite' 
version of the more complete 'viridis' package that can be found at

2019-04-13: cran-speaq-r33-2.0.0-1 (NMR Spectrum Alignment Tools)
We introduce a novel suite of informatics tools for the quantitative analysis
of NMR metabolomic profile data. The core of the processing cascade is a novel
peak alignment algorithm, called hierarchical Cluster-based Peak Alignment
(CluPA). The algorithm aligns a target spectrum to the reference spectrum in
a top-down fashion by building a hierarchical cluster tree from peak lists of
reference and target spectra and then dividing the spectra into smaller
segments based on the most distant clusters of the tree. To reduce the
computational time to estimate the spectral misalignment, the method makes
use of Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) cross-correlation. Since the method
returns a high-quality alignment, we can propose a simple methodology to study
the variability of the NMR spectra. For each aligned NMR data point the ratio
of the between-group and within-group sum of squares (BW-ratio) is calculated
to quantify the difference in variability between and within predefined groups
of NMR spectra. This differential analysis is related to the calculation of
the F-statistic or a one-way ANOVA, but without distributional assumptions.
Statistical inference based on the BW-ratio is achieved by bootstrapping the
null distribution from the experimental data. Related publication is
available at http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/12/405/.

hierarchical clustering stage for starting Mclust models. By default
the algorithm uses a sequential search, but parallelization is also
available.

2019-04-13: cran-candisc-r31-0.8-0-1 (Shrunken Centroids RDA)
This package includes functions for computing and visualizing
generalized canonical discriminant analyses and canonical
correlation analysis for a multivariate linear model.
Traditional canonical discriminant analysis is restricted
to a one-way MANOVA design and is equivalent to canonical
correlation analysis between a set of quantitative response
variables and a set of dummy variables coded from the factor
variable. The candisc package generalizes this to multi-way
MANOVA designs for all factors in a multivariate linear model,
computing canonical scores and vectors for each term. The
graphic functions provide low-rank (1D, 2D, 3D) visualizations
of terms in an mlm via the plot.candisc and heplot.candisc
methods. Related plots are now provided for canonical
correlation analysis when all predictors are quantitative.

2019-04-13: cran-rcppeigen-r35-0.3.3.5.0-1 (Rcpp Eigen templated linear algebra library)
R and Eigen integration using Rcpp. Eigen is a C++ template library
for linear algebra: matrices, vectors, numerical solvers and related
algorithms. It supports dense and sparse matrices on integer,
floating point and complex numbers, decompositions of such matrices,
and solutions of linear systems. Its performance on many algorithms
is comparable with some of the best implementations based on Lapack
and level-3 BLAS. The RcppEigen package includes the header files
from the Eigen C++ template library (currently version 3.2.0).
Thus users do not need to install Eigen itself in order to use
RcppEigen. Since version 3.1.1, Eigen is licensed under the
Mozilla Public License (version 2); earlier version were licensed
under the GNU LGPL version 3 or later. RcppEigen (the Rcpp
bindings/bridge to Eigen) is licensed under the GNU GPL version 2
 or later, as is the rest of Rcpp.

'tcltk' is required. Password entry can be invoked in two different
ways: directly from R via the askpass() function, or indirectly as
password-entry back-end for 'ssh-agent' or 'git-credential' via the
SSH_ASKPASS and GIT_ASKPASS environment variables. Thereby the user can
be prompted for credentials or a passphrase if needed when R calls out
to git or ssh.

2019-04-13: cran-candisc-r32-0.8-0-1 (Shrunken Centroids RDA)
This package includes functions for computing and visualizing
generalized canonical discriminant analyses and canonical
correlation analysis for a multivariate linear model.
Traditional canonical discriminant analysis is restricted
to a one-way MANOVA design and is equivalent to canonical
correlation analysis between a set of quantitative response
variables and a set of dummy variables coded from the factor
variable. The candisc package generalizes this to multi-way
MANOVA designs for all factors in a multivariate linear model,
computing canonical scores and vectors for each term. The
graphic functions provide low-rank (1D, 2D, 3D) visualizations
of terms in an mlm via the plot.candisc and heplot.candisc
methods. Related plots are now provided for canonical
correlation analysis when all predictors are quantitative.

Support for the foreach looping construct. Foreach is an idiom that
allows for iterating over elements in a collection, without the use
of an explicit loop counter. This package in particular is intended
to be used for its return value, rather than for its side effects.
In that sense, it is similar to the standard lapply function, but
doesn't require the evaluation of a function. Using foreach without
side effects also facilitates executing the loop in parallel.

2019-04-13: cran-readr-r35-1.3.1-1 (Read Rectangular Text Data)
The goal of 'readr' is to provide a fast and friendly way to read
rectangular data (like 'csv', 'tsv', and 'fwf'). It is designed to
flexibly parse many types of data found in the wild, while still
cleanly failing when data unexpectedly changes.

2019-04-13: cran-openssl-r34-1.3-1 (Encryption, Signatures and Certificates)
Bindings to OpenSSL libssl and libcrypto, plus custom SSH 
pubkey parsers. Supports RSA, DSA and EC curves P-256, 
P-384 and P-521. Cryptographic signatures can either be 
created and verified manually or via x509 certificates. 
AES can be used in cbc, ctr or gcm mode for symmetric 
encryption; RSA for asymmetric (public key) encryption or 
EC for Diffie Hellman. High-level envelope functions combine 
RSA and AES for encrypting arbitrary sized data. Other 
utilities include key generators, hash functions (md5, 
sha1, sha256, etc), base64 encoder, a secure random 
number generator, and 'bignum' math methods for manually 
performing crypto calculations on large multibyte integers.

2019-04-13: cran-candisc-r34-0.8-0-1 (Shrunken Centroids RDA)
This package includes functions for computing and visualizing
generalized canonical discriminant analyses and canonical
correlation analysis for a multivariate linear model.
Traditional canonical discriminant analysis is restricted
to a one-way MANOVA design and is equivalent to canonical
correlation analysis between a set of quantitative response
variables and a set of dummy variables coded from the factor
variable. The candisc package generalizes this to multi-way
MANOVA designs for all factors in a multivariate linear model,
computing canonical scores and vectors for each term. The
graphic functions provide low-rank (1D, 2D, 3D) visualizations
of terms in an mlm via the plot.candisc and heplot.candisc
methods. Related plots are now provided for canonical
correlation analysis when all predictors are quantitative.

    R-3.5 updates
2019-04-13: cran-viridis-r35-0.5.1-2 (Default Color Maps from 'matplotlib')
Port of the new 'matplotlib' color maps ('viridis' - the default -,
'magma', plasma' and 'inferno') to 'R'. 'matplotlib'
http://matplotlib.org/  is a popular plotting library for 'python'.
These color maps are designed in such a way that they will analytically be
perfectly perceptually-uniform, both in regular form and also when
converted to black-and-white. They are also designed to be perceived by
readers with the most common form of color blindness. This is the 'lite'
version of the more complete 'viridis' package that can be found at
<https://cran.r-project.org/package=viridis>.

2019-04-13: cran-foreach-r32-1.4.4-1 (Foreach looping construct for R)
Support for the foreach looping construct. Foreach is an idiom that
allows for iterating over elements in a collection, without the use
of an explicit loop counter. This package in particular is intended
to be used for its return value, rather than for its side effects.
In that sense, it is similar to the standard lapply function, but
doesn't require the evaluation of a function. Using foreach without
side effects also facilitates executing the loop in parallel.

2019-04-13: cran-brglm-r32-0.6.2-1 (Bias reduction in binomial-response)
Fit generalized linear models with binomial responses using either
an adjusted-score approach to bias reduction or maximum penalized
likelihood where penalization is by Jeffreys invariant prior.
These procedures return estimates with improved frequentist properties
(bias, mean squared error) that are always finite even in cases where
the maximum likelihood estimates are infinite (data separation).
Fitting takes place by fitting generalized linear models on iteratively
updated pseudo-data. The interface is essentially the same as 'glm'.
More flexibility is provided by the fact that custom pseudo-data
representations can be specified and used for model fitting. Functions
are provided for the construction of confidence intervals for the
reduced-bias estimates.

    R-3.5 updates
2019-04-13: cran-care-r34-1.1.10-1 (Regression and CAR Score Variable Selection)
The "care" package implements the regression approach of Zuber and
Strimmer (2011) "High-dimensional regression and variable selection
using CAR scores" SAGMB 10: 34. CAR scores measure the correlation
between the response and the Mahalanobis-decorrelated predictors.
The squared CAR score is a natural measure of variable importance
and provides a canonical ordering of variables. This package
provides functions for estimating CAR scores, for variable
selection using CAR scores, and for estimating corresponding
regression coefficients. Both shrinkage as well as empirical
estimators are available.

2019-04-13: cran-foreach-r33-1.4.4-1 (Foreach looping construct for R)
Support for the foreach looping construct. Foreach is an idiom that
allows for iterating over elements in a collection, without the use
of an explicit loop counter. This package in particular is intended
to be used for its return value, rather than for its side effects.
In that sense, it is similar to the standard lapply function, but
doesn't require the evaluation of a function. Using foreach without
side effects also facilitates executing the loop in parallel.

'tcltk' is required. Password entry can be invoked in two different
ways: directly from R via the askpass() function, or indirectly as
password-entry back-end for 'ssh-agent' or 'git-credential' via the
SSH_ASKPASS and GIT_ASKPASS environment variables. Thereby the user can
be prompted for credentials or a passphrase if needed when R calls out
to git or ssh.

data structure from the file extension, reasonable defaults are used for
data import and export (e.g., 'stringsAsFactors=FALSE'), web-based
import is natively supported (including from SSL/HTTPS), compressed
files can be read directly without explicit decompression, and fast
import packages are used where appropriate. An additional convenience
function, 'convert()', provides a simple method for converting between
file types.

2019-04-13: cran-bh-r31-1.69.0-1-1 (Boost C++ header files)
Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries.
A large part of Boost is provided as C++ template code which is
resolved entirely at compile-time without linking. This package
aims to provide the most useful subset of Boost libraries for
template use among CRAN package. By placing these libraries in
this package, we offer a more efficient distribution system for
CRAN as replication of this code in the sources of other
packages is avoided.

    All CRAN based rmods use a custom mirror
2019-04-13: cran-plyr-r34-1.8.4-1 (Splitting, applying and combining data)
plyr is a set of tools that solves a common set of problems: you need to
break a big problem down into manageable pieces, operate on each pieces
and then put all the pieces back together. For example, you might want
to fit a model to each spatial location or time point in your study, 
summarise data by panels or collapse high-dimensional arrays to simpler
summary statistics. The development of plyr has been generously supported
by BD (Becton Dickinson).

protected key. Includes native programs for MacOS and Windows, hence no
'tcltk' is required. Password entry can be invoked in two different
ways: directly from R via the askpass() function, or indirectly as
password-entry back-end for 'ssh-agent' or 'git-credential' via the
SSH_ASKPASS and GIT_ASKPASS environment variables. Thereby the user can
be prompted for credentials or a passphrase if needed when R calls out
to git or ssh.

A fast JSON parser and generator optimized for statistical data and the web.
Started out as a fork of RJSONIO, but has been completely rewritten in
recent versions. The package offers flexible, robust, high performance
tools for working with JSON in R and is particularly powerful for building
pipelines and interacting with web APIs. The implementation is based on the
mapping described in the vignette of the package (Ooms, 2014). In addition
to drop-in replacements for toJSON and fromJSON, jsonlite contains functions
to stream, validate, and prettify JSON data. The unit tests included with
the package verify that all edge cases are encoded and decoded consistently
for use with dynamic data in systems and applications.

2019-04-13: cran-candisc-r33-0.8-0-1 (Shrunken Centroids RDA)
This package includes functions for computing and visualizing
generalized canonical discriminant analyses and canonical
correlation analysis for a multivariate linear model.
Traditional canonical discriminant analysis is restricted
to a one-way MANOVA design and is equivalent to canonical
correlation analysis between a set of quantitative response
variables and a set of dummy variables coded from the factor
variable. The candisc package generalizes this to multi-way
MANOVA designs for all factors in a multivariate linear model,
computing canonical scores and vectors for each term. The
graphic functions provide low-rank (1D, 2D, 3D) visualizations
of terms in an mlm via the plot.candisc and heplot.candisc
methods. Related plots are now provided for canonical
correlation analysis when all predictors are quantitative.

2019-04-13: bioconductor-qvalue-r32-2.6.0-1 (Q-value estimation)
This package takes a list of p-values resulting from the simultaneous
testing of many hypotheses and estimates their q-values and local FDR
values. The q-value of a test measures the proportion of false positives
incurred (called the false discovery rate) when that particular test is
called significant. The local FDR measures the posterior probability
the null hypothesis is true given the test's p-value. Various plots
are automatically generated, allowing one to make sensible significance
cut-offs. Several mathematical results have recently been shown on the
conservative accuracy of the estimated q-values from this software.
The software can be applied to problems in genomics, brain imaging,
astrophysics, and data mining.

Alternating least squares is often used to resolve components contributing
to data with a bilinear structure; the basic technique may be extended to
alternating constrained least squares. Commonly applied constraints include
unimodality, non-negativity, and normalization of components. Several data
matrices may be decomposed simultaneously by assuming that one of the two
matrices in the bilinear decomposition is shared between datasets.

2019-04-13: cran-brglm-r34-0.6.2-1 (Bias reduction in binomial-response)
Fit generalized linear models with binomial responses using either
an adjusted-score approach to bias reduction or maximum penalized
likelihood where penalization is by Jeffreys invariant prior.
These procedures return estimates with improved frequentist properties
(bias, mean squared error) that are always finite even in cases where
the maximum likelihood estimates are infinite (data separation).
Fitting takes place by fitting generalized linear models on iteratively
updated pseudo-data. The interface is essentially the same as 'glm'.
More flexibility is provided by the fact that custom pseudo-data
representations can be specified and used for model fitting. Functions
are provided for the construction of confidence intervals for the
reduced-bias estimates.

2019-04-13: cran-plyr-r35-1.8.4-1 (Splitting, applying and combining data)
plyr is a set of tools that solves a common set of problems: you need to
break a big problem down into manageable pieces, operate on each pieces
and then put all the pieces back together. For example, you might want
to fit a model to each spatial location or time point in your study, 
summarise data by panels or collapse high-dimensional arrays to simpler
summary statistics. The development of plyr has been generously supported
by BD (Becton Dickinson).

2019-04-13: cran-cairo-r31-1.5-9-2 (Graphics device using cairo graphics library)
This package provides a Cairo graphics device that can be use to
create high-quality vector (PDF, PostScript and SVG) and bitmap output
(PNG,JPEG,TIFF), and high-quality rendering in displays (X11 and Win32).
Since it uses the same back-end for all output, copying across formats
is WYSIWYG. Files are created without the dependence on X11 or other
external programs. This device supports alpha channel (semi-transparent
drawing) and resulting images can contain transparent and semi-transparent
regions. It is ideal for use in server environments (file output) and as
a replacement for other devices that don't have Cairo's capabilities
such as alpha support or anti-aliasing. Backends are modular such that
any subset of backends is supported.

2019-04-13: cran-foreach-r35-1.4.4-1 (Foreach looping construct for R)
Support for the foreach looping construct. Foreach is an idiom that
allows for iterating over elements in a collection, without the use
of an explicit loop counter. This package in particular is intended
to be used for its return value, rather than for its side effects.
In that sense, it is similar to the standard lapply function, but
doesn't require the evaluation of a function. Using foreach without
side effects also facilitates executing the loop in parallel.

this package, we offer a more efficient distribution system for
CRAN as replication of this code in the sources of other
packages is avoided.

visually explored using various univariate, bivariate, multiple and
multivariate plot methods. A graphical user interface available in the

translation between different chromosome sequence naming conventions
(e.g., "chr1" versus "1"), including a function that attempts to place
sequence names in their natural, rather than lexicographic, order.

2019-04-13: cran-candisc-r35-0.8-0-1 (Shrunken Centroids RDA)
This package includes functions for computing and visualizing
generalized canonical discriminant analyses and canonical
correlation analysis for a multivariate linear model.
Traditional canonical discriminant analysis is restricted
to a one-way MANOVA design and is equivalent to canonical
correlation analysis between a set of quantitative response
variables and a set of dummy variables coded from the factor
variable. The candisc package generalizes this to multi-way
MANOVA designs for all factors in a multivariate linear model,
computing canonical scores and vectors for each term. The
graphic functions provide low-rank (1D, 2D, 3D) visualizations
of terms in an mlm via the plot.candisc and heplot.candisc
methods. Related plots are now provided for canonical
correlation analysis when all predictors are quantitative.

2019-04-13: cran-speaq-r31-2.0.0-1 (NMR Spectrum Alignment Tools)
We introduce a novel suite of informatics tools for the quantitative analysis
of NMR metabolomic profile data. The core of the processing cascade is a novel
peak alignment algorithm, called hierarchical Cluster-based Peak Alignment
(CluPA). The algorithm aligns a target spectrum to the reference spectrum in
a top-down fashion by building a hierarchical cluster tree from peak lists of
reference and target spectra and then dividing the spectra into smaller
segments based on the most distant clusters of the tree. To reduce the
computational time to estimate the spectral misalignment, the method makes
use of Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) cross-correlation. Since the method
returns a high-quality alignment, we can propose a simple methodology to study
the variability of the NMR spectra. For each aligned NMR data point the ratio
of the between-group and within-group sum of squares (BW-ratio) is calculated
to quantify the difference in variability between and within predefined groups
of NMR spectra. This differential analysis is related to the calculation of
the F-statistic or a one-way ANOVA, but without distributional assumptions.
Statistical inference based on the BW-ratio is achieved by bootstrapping the
null distribution from the experimental data. Related publication is
available at http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/12/405/.

Implementations of functions which have been introduced in R

This package takes a list of p-values resulting from the simultaneous
testing of many hypotheses and estimates their q-values and local FDR
values. The q-value of a test measures the proportion of false positives
incurred (called the false discovery rate) when that particular test is
called significant. The local FDR measures the posterior probability
the null hypothesis is true given the test's p-value. Various plots
are automatically generated, allowing one to make sensible significance
cut-offs. Several mathematical results have recently been shown on the
conservative accuracy of the estimated q-values from this software.
The software can be applied to problems in genomics, brain imaging,
astrophysics, and data mining.

R Markdown is a format that enables easy authoring of reproducible

(an easy-to-write plain text format for web content) with embedded 
R code chunks that are run so their output can be included in 
the final document.

The concept of R Markdown is similar to Sweave (a system built-in 
to R for combining R with LaTeX). In Sweave, Rnw files are "weaved" 
into TeX files that are then compiled into PDFs. In R Markdown, 
Rmd files are similarly "weaved" into plain markdown (.md) files 
that are then compiled into HTML documents.

2019-04-13: cran-brglm-r35-0.6.2-1 (Bias reduction in binomial-response)
Fit generalized linear models with binomial responses using either
an adjusted-score approach to bias reduction or maximum penalized
likelihood where penalization is by Jeffreys invariant prior.
These procedures return estimates with improved frequentist properties
(bias, mean squared error) that are always finite even in cases where
the maximum likelihood estimates are infinite (data separation).
Fitting takes place by fitting generalized linear models on iteratively
updated pseudo-data. The interface is essentially the same as 'glm'.
More flexibility is provided by the fact that custom pseudo-data
representations can be specified and used for model fitting. Functions
are provided for the construction of confidence intervals for the
reduced-bias estimates.

to drop-in replacements for toJSON and fromJSON, jsonlite contains functions
to stream, validate, and prettify JSON data. The unit tests included with
the package verify that all edge cases are encoded and decoded consistently

2019-04-13: cran-rcpparmadillo-r35-0.9.300.2.0-1 (Rcpp integration for Armadillo)
R and Armadillo integration using Rcpp Armadillo is a templated
C++ linear algebra library (by Conrad Sanderson) that aims towards
a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer, floating
point and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of
trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions
are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS
libraries. A delayed evaluation approach is employed (during compile
time) to combine several operations into one, and to reduce (or
eliminate) the need for temporaries. This is accomplished through
recursive templates and template meta-programming. This library is
useful if C++ has been decided as the language of choice (due
to speed and/or integration capabilities), rather than another
language. The RcppArmadillo package includes the header files
from the templated Armadillo library. Thus users do not need to
install Armadillo itself in order to use RcppArmadillo. This
Armadillo integration provides a nice illustration of the
capabilities of the Rcpp package for seamless R and C++
integration. Armadillo is licensed under the MPL 2.0, while

Alternating least squares is often used to resolve components contributing
to data with a bilinear structure; the basic technique may be extended to
alternating constrained least squares. Commonly applied constraints include
unimodality, non-negativity, and normalization of components. Several data
matrices may be decomposed simultaneously by assuming that one of the two
matrices in the bilinear decomposition is shared between datasets.

2019-04-13: cran-rcpparmadillo-r31-0.7.960.1.1-1 (Rcpp integration for Armadillo)
R and Armadillo integration using Rcpp Armadillo is a templated
C++ linear algebra library (by Conrad Sanderson) that aims towards
a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer, floating
point and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of
trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions
are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS
libraries. A delayed evaluation approach is employed (during compile
time) to combine several operations into one, and to reduce (or
eliminate) the need for temporaries. This is accomplished through
recursive templates and template meta-programming. This library is
useful if C++ has been decided as the language of choice (due
to speed and/or integration capabilities), rather than another
language. The RcppArmadillo package includes the header files
from the templated Armadillo library. Thus users do not need to
install Armadillo itself in order to use RcppArmadillo. This
Armadillo integration provides a nice illustration of the
capabilities of the Rcpp package for seamless R and C++
integration. Armadillo is licensed under the MPL 2.0, while
RcppArmadillo (the Rcpp bindings/bridge to Armadillo) is
licensed under the GNU GPL version 2 or later, as is the
rest of Rcpp.

2019-04-13: cran-digest-r31-0.6.18-1 (GNU R Tools for string function wrappers)
The digest package provides a function 'digest()' for the creation of 
hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the md5, sha-1, sha-256 and 
crc32 algorithms) permitting easy comparison of R language objects, 
as well as a function 'hmac()' to create hash-based message 
authentication code. The md5 algorithm by Ron Rivest is specified in 
RFC 1321, the sha-1 and sha-256 algorithms are specified in FIPS-180-1 
and FIPS-180-2, and the crc32 algorithm is described in 
ftp://ftp.rocksoft.com/cliens/rocksoft/papers/crc_v3.txt. 
For md5, sha-1, sha-256 and aes, this package uses a small standalone 
implementations that were provided by Christophe Devine. 
For crc32, code from the zlib library is used. 
For sha-512, an implementation by Aaron D. Gifford is used. 
Please note that this package is not meant to be deployed for 
cryptographic purposes for which more comprehensive (and widely tested) 
libraries such as OpenSSL should be used.

2019-04-13: bioconductor-qvalue-r34-2.6.0-1 (Q-value estimation)
This package takes a list of p-values resulting from the simultaneous
testing of many hypotheses and estimates their q-values and local FDR
values. The q-value of a test measures the proportion of false positives
incurred (called the false discovery rate) when that particular test is
called significant. The local FDR measures the posterior probability
the null hypothesis is true given the test's p-value. Various plots
are automatically generated, allowing one to make sensible significance
cut-offs. Several mathematical results have recently been shown on the
conservative accuracy of the estimated q-values from this software.
The software can be applied to problems in genomics, brain imaging,
astrophysics, and data mining.

2019-04-13: bioconductor-globalancova-r35-3.42.0-1 (Global test for differential gene expression)
We give the following arguments in support of the GlobalAncova approach: After
appropriate normalisation, gene-expression-data appear rather symmetrical and
outliers are no real problem, so least squares should be rather robust. ANCOVA
with interaction yields saturated data modelling e.g. different means per group
and gene. Covariate adjustment can help to correct for possible selection bias.
Variance homogeneity and uncorrelated residuals cannot be expected. Application
of ordinary least squares gives unbiased, but no longer optimal estimates
(Gauss-Markov-Aitken). Therefore, using the classical F-test is inappropriate,
due to correlation. The test statistic however mirrors deviations from the null
hypothesis. In combination with a permutation approach, empirical significance
levels can be approximated. Alternatively, an approximation yields asymptotic
p-values. This work was supported by the NGFN grant 01 GR 0459, BMBF, Germany.

of the missing and/or imputed values. Depending on this structure of the
missing values, the corresponding methods may help to identify the
mechanism generating the missing values and allows to explore the data
including missing values. In addition, the quality of imputation can be
visually explored using various univariate, bivariate, multiple and
multivariate plot methods. A graphical user interface available in the
separate package VIMGUI allows an easy handling of the implemented plot
methods.

2019-04-13: cran-doby-r31-4.5-13-1 (Groupwise summary statistics)
doBy originally contained facilities to 'do something' to data where data
is partitioned 'by' some variables which define groupings of data - hence
the name doBy. doBy contains a variety of utilities including: 1) Facilities
for groupwise computations of summary statistics and other facilities for
working with grouped data. 2) LSmeans (least-squares means), general linear
contrasts. 3) Miscellaneous other utilities.

2019-04-13: cran-brglm-r33-0.6.2-1 (Bias reduction in binomial-response)
Fit generalized linear models with binomial responses using either
an adjusted-score approach to bias reduction or maximum penalized
likelihood where penalization is by Jeffreys invariant prior.
These procedures return estimates with improved frequentist properties
(bias, mean squared error) that are always finite even in cases where
the maximum likelihood estimates are infinite (data separation).
Fitting takes place by fitting generalized linear models on iteratively
updated pseudo-data. The interface is essentially the same as 'glm'.
More flexibility is provided by the fact that custom pseudo-data
representations can be specified and used for model fitting. Functions
are provided for the construction of confidence intervals for the
reduced-bias estimates.

This package introduces new tools for the visualization of missing and/or
imputed values, which can be used for exploring the data and the structure
of the missing and/or imputed values. Depending on this structure of the
missing values, the corresponding methods may help to identify the
mechanism generating the missing values and allows to explore the data
including missing values. In addition, the quality of imputation can be
visually explored using various univariate, bivariate, multiple and
multivariate plot methods. A graphical user interface available in the
separate package VIMGUI allows an easy handling of the implemented plot
methods.

2019-04-13: cran-cairo-r32-1.5-9-2 (Graphics device using cairo graphics library)
This package provides a Cairo graphics device that can be use to
create high-quality vector (PDF, PostScript and SVG) and bitmap output
(PNG,JPEG,TIFF), and high-quality rendering in displays (X11 and Win32).
Since it uses the same back-end for all output, copying across formats
is WYSIWYG. Files are created without the dependence on X11 or other
external programs. This device supports alpha channel (semi-transparent
drawing) and resulting images can contain transparent and semi-transparent
regions. It is ideal for use in server environments (file output) and as
a replacement for other devices that don't have Cairo's capabilities
such as alpha support or anti-aliasing. Backends are modular such that
any subset of backends is supported.

For the native one, Tk must be upgraded. See www.tcl.tk to download
source. Under the Mac it compiles and installs cleanly. For X11,
tcltk libraries can be downloaded to augment the R binary package.
See http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/tools/. The gdf function
requires the add on Tk package TkTable (http://tktable.sourceforge.net/).

they operate either on a single frame or a series of frames for working
with layers, collages, or animation. In RStudio images are automatically
previewed when printed to the console, resulting in an interactive
editing environment. The latest version of the package includes a native
graphics device for creating in-memory graphics or drawing onto images
using pixel coordinates.

2019-04-13: bioconductor-qvalue-r35-2.6.0-1 (Q-value estimation)
This package takes a list of p-values resulting from the simultaneous
testing of many hypotheses and estimates their q-values and local FDR
values. The q-value of a test measures the proportion of false positives
incurred (called the false discovery rate) when that particular test is
called significant. The local FDR measures the posterior probability
the null hypothesis is true given the test's p-value. Various plots
are automatically generated, allowing one to make sensible significance
cut-offs. Several mathematical results have recently been shown on the
conservative accuracy of the estimated q-values from this software.
The software can be applied to problems in genomics, brain imaging,
astrophysics, and data mining.

This package provides a function tidy.source() and optionally a GUI
(by gWidgets and preferably gWidgetsRGtk2) to format R source code.
Spaces and indent will be added to the code automatically, and comments
will be preserved under certain conditions, so that R code will be more
human-readable and tidy.

2019-04-13: cran-bh-r34-1.69.0-1-1 (Boost C++ header files)
Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries.
A large part of Boost is provided as C++ template code which is
resolved entirely at compile-time without linking. This package
aims to provide the most useful subset of Boost libraries for
template use among CRAN package. By placing these libraries in
this package, we offer a more efficient distribution system for
CRAN as replication of this code in the sources of other
packages is avoided.

2019-04-13: cran-backports-r34-1.1.3-1 (Resolving the function names)
Implementations of functions which have been introduced in R
since version 3.0.0. The backports are conditionally exported
which results in R resolving the function names to the version
shipped with R (if available) and uses the implemented backports
as fallback. This way package developers can make use of the new
functions without worrying about the minimum required R version.

2019-04-13: cran-recipes-r32-0.1.5-1 (Preprocessing Tools to Create Design Matrices)
An extensible framework to create and preprocess design matrices.
Recipes consist of one or more data manipulation and analysis "steps".
Statistical parameters for the steps can be estimated from an initial
data set and then applied to other data sets. The resulting design
matrices can then be used as inputs into statistical or machine learning
models.

2019-04-13: cran-speaq-r32-2.0.0-1 (NMR Spectrum Alignment Tools)
We introduce a novel suite of informatics tools for the quantitative analysis
of NMR metabolomic profile data. The core of the processing cascade is a novel
peak alignment algorithm, called hierarchical Cluster-based Peak Alignment
(CluPA). The algorithm aligns a target spectrum to the reference spectrum in
a top-down fashion by building a hierarchical cluster tree from peak lists of
reference and target spectra and then dividing the spectra into smaller
segments based on the most distant clusters of the tree. To reduce the
computational time to estimate the spectral misalignment, the method makes
use of Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) cross-correlation. Since the method
returns a high-quality alignment, we can propose a simple methodology to study
the variability of the NMR spectra. For each aligned NMR data point the ratio
of the between-group and within-group sum of squares (BW-ratio) is calculated
to quantify the difference in variability between and within predefined groups
of NMR spectra. This differential analysis is related to the calculation of
the F-statistic or a one-way ANOVA, but without distributional assumptions.
Statistical inference based on the BW-ratio is achieved by bootstrapping the
null distribution from the experimental data. Related publication is
available at http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2105/12/405/.

R Markdown is a format that enables easy authoring of reproducible 
web reports from R. It combines the core syntax of Markdown 
(an easy-to-write plain text format for web content) with embedded 
R code chunks that are run so their output can be included in 
the final document.

The concept of R Markdown is similar to Sweave (a system built-in 
to R for combining R with LaTeX). In Sweave, Rnw files are "weaved" 
into TeX files that are then compiled into PDFs. In R Markdown, 
Rmd files are similarly "weaved" into plain markdown (.md) files 
that are then compiled into HTML documents.

2019-04-13: cran-ape-r32-3.5-2 (Analyses of Phylogenetics and Evolution)
ape provides functions for reading, writing, plotting, and manipulating
phylogenetic trees, analyses of comparative data in a phylogenetic
framework, ancestral character analyses, analyses of diversification
and macroevolution, computing distances from allelic and nucleotide data,
reading and writing nucleotide sequences, and several tools such as
Mantel's test, generalized skyline plots, graphical exploration of
phylogenetic data (alex, trex, kronoviz), estimation of absolute
evolutionary rates and clock-like trees using mean path lengths and
penalized likelihood. Phylogeny estimation can be done with the NJ,
BIONJ, ME, MVR, SDM, and triangle methods, and several methods
handling incomplete distance matrices (NJ*, BIONJ*, MVR*, and the
corresponding triangle method). Some functions call external 
applications (PhyML, Clustal, T-Coffee, Muscle) whose results are
returned into R.

2019-04-13: cran-digest-r34-0.6.18-1 (GNU R Tools for string function wrappers)
The digest package provides a function 'digest()' for the creation of 
hash digests of arbitrary R objects (using the md5, sha-1, sha-256 and 
crc32 algorithms) permitting easy comparison of R language objects, 
as well as a function 'hmac()' to create hash-based message 
authentication code. The md5 algorithm by Ron Rivest is specified in 
RFC 1321, the sha-1 and sha-256 algorithms are specified in FIPS-180-1 
and FIPS-180-2, and the crc32 algorithm is described in 
ftp://ftp.rocksoft.com/cliens/rocksoft/papers/crc_v3.txt. 
For md5, sha-1, sha-256 and aes, this package uses a small standalone 
implementations that were provided by Christophe Devine. 
For crc32, code from the zlib library is used. 
For sha-512, an implementation by Aaron D. Gifford is used. 
Please note that this package is not meant to be deployed for 
cryptographic purposes for which more comprehensive (and widely tested) 
libraries such as OpenSSL should be used.

2019-04-13: cran-curl-r34-3.3-1 (Connection Interface to Libcurl)
The curl() function provides a drop-in replacement for base url() with better
performance and support for http 2.0, ssl (https://, ftps://), gzip, deflate
and other libcurl goodies. This interface is implemented using the RConnection
API in order to support incremental processing of both binary and text streams.
If you are looking for a more-user-friendly http client, try the RCurl or httr
packages instead.

2019-04-13: cran-histdata-r31-0.8-4-1 (History of statistics data sets)
The HistData package provides a collection of small data sets that
are interesting and important in the history of statistics and data
visualization. The goal of the package is to make these available,
both for instructional use and for historical research. Some of
these present interesting challenges for graphics or analysis in R.
