A diagnostic analysis for exploring genotype-by-environment interactions which often are found in plant breeding trials. Example programs given for a national rapeseed trial. Codes written for the SAS programming language.
The model is capable of working on large scales and can be adjusted for various factors. Command line routines written in ANSI C and the Perl scripting language.
Estimation of doses in an unknown sample assuming the calibration curve known or estimated. Codes written in SAS.
Dose-response models are common in agriculture and biology. Dose-response curves are often used in bioassay to determine unknown dosage levels. The programs below illustrate the process of unknown dose estimation under two conditions:
- Calibration curve is known without error
- Calibration curve is estimated with known error
Examples are given for the logistic model:
y = 1/(1 + exp(-B*(dose - G)))
where y = the proportion of successes, B is a rate related parameter, G is the estimate of the 50th percentile and dose is the applied dose.
The Bayesian solution reparametrized the first form in terms of T1, the initial proportion of successes at dose = 0, and T2, the final proportion of successes at dose = maximum. Prior distributions for T1 and T2 are assumed uniform.
These programs compute Binomial, Bayesian and Bootstrap estimations of the omissional and commission error rates used in assessing the reliability of remotely sensed imagery. Command line routines written in ANSI C and the Perl scripting language.
Examples are given for Common Crupina, a weed found in the northwestern United States. Codes written for the SAS programming language.
Various estimation techniques: Probit, NLIN, GNLIM and Bayesian. Example programs given in SAS for egg hatch in black vine weevil. Codes written in SAS.
