Functions that estimate sample (taxonomic) composition from biomarker data
bce1
estimates probability distributions of a sample composition
based on an input ratio matrix, A
, containing
biomarker ratios in (field) samples, and an input data matrix,
B
, containing the biomarker ratios for several taxonomic groups
tlsce
estimates the total least squares solution
This version differs from the previous version <2 in that a different MCMC method is used that shows better convergence properties and has a more sound underlying statistical model.
