Connectivity Scores with Factor Analysis (CSFA)
Applies factor analysis methodology to microarray data in order to derive connectivity scores between compounds. The package also contains an implementation of the connectivity score algorithm by Zhang and Gant (2008) <doi:10.1186/1471-2105-9-258>.

D-Vine Quantile Regression (vinereg)
Implements D-vine quantile regression models with parametric or nonparametric pair-copulas. See Kraus and Czado (2017) <doi:10.1016/j.csda.2016.12.009> and Schallhorn et al. (2017) <arXiv:1705.08310>.

Validate Instrumental Variables using NPS (npsr)
An R implementation of the Necessary and Probably Sufficient (NPS) test for finding valid instrumental variables, as suggested by Amit Sharma (2016, Working Paper) <http://…sary_probably_sufficient_iv_test.pdf>. The NPS test, compares the likelihood that a given set of observational data of the three variables Z, X and Y is generated by a valid instrumental variable model (Z -> X -> Y) to the likelihood that the data is generated by an invalid IV model.
