  • CCM: CCM is an R package that implements a Correlation Classification Method that classifies a test sample according to its mean correlation with all training samples having known classes. This is a robust and accurate method for predicting tissue of origin and bladder cancer stage from gene expression data.
  • mlegp : Gaussian processes (GPs) are a common class of surrogate statistical models for predicting the output of non-linear and high-dimensional computer simulations. The R package mlegp incorporates maximum likelihood estimates for Gaussian processes to model univariate and multi-dimensional outputs. A version of mlegp that implements sensitivity analysis is also available by request (see contact information above). We have found mlegp useful for calibrating and analyzing an agent-based model of Leishmania major infection.
