R to Symbolic Data Analysis (RSDA)
Symbolic Data Analysis (SDA) was proposed by professor Edwin Diday in 1987, the main purpose of SDA is to substitute the set of rows (cases) in the data table for a concept (second order statistical unit). This package implements, to the symbolic case, certain techniques of automatic classification, as well as some linear models.

Lava Estimation for the Sum of Sparse and Dense Signals (Lavash)
The lava estimation is a new technique to recover signals that is the sum of a sparse and dense signals. The post-lava method corrects the shrinkage bias of lava. For more information on the lava estimation, see Chernozhukov, Hansen, and Liao (2017) <doi:10.1214/16-AOS1434>.

Bayesian Calculation of Region-Specific Fixation Index to Detect Local Adaptation (BlockFeST)
An R implementation of an extension of the ‘BayeScan’ software (Foll, 2008) <DOI:10.1534/genetics.108.092221> for codominant markers, adding the option to group individual SNPs into pre-defined blocks. A typical application of this new approach is the identification of genomic regions, genes, or gene sets containing one or more SNPs that evolved under directional selection.
