Xpose version 4.3.0 released
2010-10-23 16:46 - Xpose
A new version of Xpose has been released. Lots of new plots and features. Note that, installation of Xpose has been simplified; it is now available through the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN). Click here for more details.

Xpose 4.2.1 released
2010-05-26 10:04 - Xpose
Changed the behaviour of xpose.multiple.plot.default. Now multiple plots are returned as objects just like single plots (no automatic printing from the function that created the plot).

Xpose 4.1.0 released
2009-11-29 12:05 - Xpose
We have updated xpose for NONMEM 7 as well as added functions for odd type (categorical, TTE, count) plots including VPCs.

Xpose 4 release 4 available

Overview of Xpose

Xpose is an R-based model building aid for population analysis using NONMEM. It facilitates data set checkout, exploration and visualization, model diagnostics, candidate covariate identification and model comparison.

Data set checkout includes visualization of the observed variable(s), covariates and plots to reveal errors in the data file.

Model diagnostic plots includes the usual residual plots but also plots to check the validity of assumptions specific to non-linear mixed effects models.

Data exploration is also done by various plots but also includes auxiliary screening analyses such as stepwise generalized additive modeling (GAM) and tree based modeling.

The stability of the GAM results with respect to covariate model selection as well as the impact of influential individuals and certain types of covariate interactions can be explored using a bootstrap re-sampling procedure.

To facilitate documentation, Xpose can produce run summaries and run records. The run records are one page summaries of a run consisting of a combination of goodness of fit plots, parameter estimates and the model file. Run records are tabulated summaries of many runs consisting of user comments, termination messages and objective function values.

For more information, take a look at the documention page.

Additionally, a more detailed description of Xpose with example plots and explanaitions for most of the functions in the package is available in our Bestiarium:
