Google’s Compact Language Detector 2 (cld2)
Bindings to Google’s C++ library Compact Language Detector 2 (see <https://…/cld2#readme> for more information). Probabilistically detects over 80 languages in UTF-8 text (plain text or HTML). For mixed-language input it returns the top three languages and their approximate proportion of the total classified text bytes (e.g. 80% English and 20% French out of 1000 bytes).

Use and if Needed Install Packages from CRAN, BioConductor, CRAN Archive, and GitHub (yearn)
This tries to attach a package if you have it; if not, it tries to install it from BioConductor or CRAN; if not available there, it tries to install it from the cran mirror on GitHub, which includes packages that have been removed from CRAN; if not available there, it looks for a matching other package on GitHub to install. Note this is sloppy practice and prone to all sorts of risks. However, there are use cases, such as quick scripting, or in a class where students already know best practices, where this can be useful. yearn was inspired by teaching in PhyloMeth, a course funded by an NSF CAREER award to the author (NSF DEB-1453424).

Dynamic Programming Algorithm for Peak Detection in ChIP-Seq Data (PeakSegDP)
A quadratic time dynamic programming algorithm can be used to compute an approximate solution to the problem of finding the most likely changepoints with respect to the Poisson likelihood, subject to a constraint on the number of segments, and the changes which must alternate: up, down, up, down, etc. For more info read <http://…/hocking15.html> ‘PeakSeg: constrained optimal segmentation and supervised penalty learning for peak detection in count data’ by TD Hocking et al, proceedings of ICML2015.
