University of Minnesota
The NPAIRS (Nonparametric, Prediction, Activation, Influence, Reproducibility, re-Sampling) package provides a statistical resampling framework with GLM, PCA and CVA data analysis options forming the basic building blocks for benchmarking and comparing data processing choices and preprocessing pipelines using prediction and reproducibility performance metrics. The distribution package also includes flexible visualization and plotting tools for displaying the results of NPAIRS analyses.
