A collection of general purpose functions of broad applicability that form
an infrastructure for other toolboxes. These functions accept standard
arguments as inputs, and produce standard arguments as outputs, thus making
no use of objects defined in my other toolboxes.
This toolbox allows for analysis of any form of multivariate data. Specifically,
it is designed to cope with the three standrad forms of data matrices: a
variable-by-sample matrix (e.g., gene array), a sample-by-sample matrix
(e.g., distance matrix), and a variable-by-variable matrix (e.g., correlation
matrix). Roughly, the toolbox allows for visualization of such data, for
dimensionality reduction and for classification (discriminant analysis).
This toolbox is not as developed as the multivariate analysis toolbox.
It allows for limited analysis of multiple alignments, and a reasonable
analysis of phylogenetic trees.
An algorithm for parameter estimation and ancestral reconstruction of the evolution
of binary characters.
