For processing and/or simulating species assemblage data.
SimAssem is a tool for investigating the performances of species richness estimators across widely ranging assemblages and survey designs. Assemblages are simulated by specifying the: 1) number of species, 2) total abundance of individuals, 3) abundance distribution, 4) spatial configuration, 5) species detection probabilities, 6) survey design, and 7) number of grid cells to survey (out of a square grid comprised of 10,000 cells). SimAssem also processes existing encounter data and formats existing and simulated encounter data for other programs. SimAssem, along with the open source code, will hopefully give researchers and managers a tool for assessing the development of new estimators and evaluating potential decisions in a simulated environment. More information on SimAssem is given in Chapter 2, 'SimAssem: a program for simulating species assemblages and estimating species richness', in the dissertation 'Simulating species assemblages and evaluating species richness estimators'.

An R program to use for comprehensive GC data analysis
Image analysis estimating cell density in arrayed microbial cultures
Image analysis software for quantification of cell density in microbial cultures (e.g. S. cerevisiae) growing on solid agar plates. Specialises in detection of extremely low cell densities. Forms part of the Quantitative Fitness Analysis (QFA) workflow: http://research.ncl.ac.uk/qfa/ Suitable for high-throughput, genome-wide analysis of culture libraries when combined with the following qfa R package: http://qfa.r-forge.r-project.org/ This is the version presented, used and demonstrated in the following manuscripts: Lawless et al. 2010 http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/1471-2105-11-287 Addinall et al. 2011 http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pgen.1001362 Chang et al. 2011 http://dx.doi.org/10.1534/g3.111.000216 Banks et al. 2012 http://dx.doi.org/10.3791/4018 Development has been moved to github, where Colonyzer has undergone several recent improvements, particuarly making installation easier and analysis faster: https://github.com/CnrLwlss/Colonyzer
An R package for metrology. metRology provides classes and calculation and plotting functions for metrology applications, including measurement uncertainty estimation and (eventually) inter-laboratory metrology comparison studies.
