Analysis using Bayesian hierachical model


Detecting Anthelmintic Resistance

Modelling Faecal Egg Counts with Shiny

The goal of the shiny-eggCounts project is to provide an intuitive web interface to analyse faecal egg count data. Therefore we developed a Shiny web application whose functionality depends on the R package eggCounts.

For advanced users, we recommend to use the R environment to access the full functionality of the R pacakge eggCounts. An additional R package eggCountsExtra further extends its functionalities.
