r-bios2cor 2.2 From biological sequences and simulations to correlation analysis

This package provides utilities for computation and analysis of correlation/covariation in multiple sequence alignments and in side chain motions during molecular dynamics simulations. Features include the computation of correlation/covariation scores using a variety of scoring functions between either sequence positions in alignments or side chain dihedral angles in molecular dynamics simulations and utilities to analyze the correlation/covariation matrix through a variety of tools including network representation and principal components analysis. In addition, several utility functions are based on the R graphical environment to provide friendly tools for help in data interpretation.
