A Generic Convex-Hull-Based Model Selection Method (multichull)
Given a set of models for which a measure of model (mis)fit and model complexity is provided, CHull(), developed by Ceulemans and Kiers (2006) <doi:10.1348/000711005X64817>, determines the models that are located on the boundary of the convex hull and selects an optimal model by means of the scree test values.

Some Information-Theoretic Functions in the ‘Tidy’ Style (tidyinftheo)
A frontend to the Shannon entropy, conditional Shannon entropy, and mutual information calculations provided by the ‘infotheo’ package. See Cover and Thomas (2001) <doi:10.1002/0471200611> for an explanation of these measures. Also provides a convenient heatmap to compare more than two columns in a pairwise fashion.

Analysis of Massive SNP Arrays (bigsnpr)
Easy-to-use, efficient, flexible and scalable tools for the analysis of massive SNP arrays. Preprint: Privé et al. (2017) <doi:10.1101/190926>.

Rcpp’ Interface to ‘PostgreSQL’ (RPostgres)
Fully ‘DBI’-compliant ‘Rcpp’-backed interface to ‘PostgreSQL’ <https://…/>, an open-source relational database.

Create Scatter Plots with Marginal Density or Box Plots (scatr)
Allows you to make clean, good-looking scatter plots with the option to easily add marginal density or box plots on the axes. It is also available as a module for ‘jamovi’ (see <https://www.jamovi.org> for more information). ‘Scatr’ is based on the ‘cowplot’ package by Claus O. Wilke and the ‘ggplot2’ package by Hadley Wickham.

p-Value Aggregation Methods (aggregation)
Contains functionality for performing the following methods of p-value aggregation: Fisher’s method [Fisher, RA (1932, ISBN: 9780028447308)], the Lancaster method (weighted Fisher’s method) [Lancaster, HO (1961, <doi:10.1111/j.1467-842X.1961.tb00058.x>)], and Sidak correction (minimum p-value method with correction) [Sidak, Z (1967, <doi:10.1080/01621459.1967.10482935>)].
