Survivor Function Estimation for Doubly Interval-Censored Failure Time Data (doubcens)
Contains the discrete nonparametric survivor function estimation algorithm of De Gruttola and Lagakos for doubly interval-censored failure time data and the discrete nonparametric survivor function estimation algorithm of Sun for doubly interval-censored left-truncated failure time data [Victor De Gruttola & Stephen W. Lagakos (1989) <doi:10.2307/2532030>] [Jianguo Sun (1995) <doi:10.2307/2533008>].

Generalized Berk-Jones Statistic for Set-Based Inference (GBJ)
Offers the Generalized Berk-Jones (GBJ) test for set-based inference in genetic association studies. The GBJ is designed as an alternative to tests such as Berk-Jones (BJ), Higher Criticism (HC), Generalized Higher Criticism (GHC), Minimum p-value (minP), and Sequence Kernel Association Test (SKAT). All of these other methods (except for SKAT) are also implemented in this package, and we additionally provide an omnibus test (OMNI) which integrates information from each of the tests. The GBJ has been shown to outperform other tests in genetic association studies when signals are correlated and moderately sparse. For more details, please ask for a preprint of our manuscript or see the vignette for a quickstart guide.

Threshold Cut Point of Probability for a Binary Classifier Model (BinarybalancedCut)
Allows to view the optimal probability cut-off point at which the Sensitivity and Specificity meets and its a best way to minimize both Type-1 and Type-2 error for a binary Classifier in determining the Probability threshold.

Create Interactive Chart with the JavaScript ‘Billboard’ Library (billboarder)
Provides an ‘htmlwidgets’ interface to ‘billboard.js’, a re-usable easy interface JavaScript chart library, based on D3 v4+. Chart types include line charts, scatterplots, bar charts, pie/donut charts and gauge charts. All charts are interactive, and a proxy method is implemented to smoothly update a chart without rendering it again in ‘shiny’ apps.
