# pcaMethods

R package for performing
[principal component analysis PCA](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Principal_component_analysis)
with applications to missing value imputation. Provides a single
interface to performing PCA using

- **SVD:** a fast method which is also the standard method in R but
  which is not applicable for data with missing values.
- **NIPALS:** an iterative fast method which is applicable also to
  data with missing values.
- **PPCA:** Probabilistic PCA which is applicable also on data with
  missing values. Missing value estimation is typically better than
  NIPALS but also slower to compute and uses more memory. A port to R
  of the
  [implementation by Jakob Verbeek](http://lear.inrialpes.fr/~verbeek/software.php).
- **BPCA:** Bayesian PCA which performs very well in the presence of
  missing values but is slower than PPCA. A port of the
  [matlab implementation by Shigeyuki Oba](http://ishiilab.jp/member/oba/tools/BPCAFill.html).
- **NLPCA:** Non-linear PCA which can find curves in data and in
  presence of such can perform accurate missing value
  estimation. [Matlab port of the implementation by Mathias Scholz](http://www.nlpca.org/).


[pcaMethods is a Bioconductor package](http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/pcaMethods.html)
and you can install it by

```R
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly=TRUE))
    install.packages("BiocManager")
BiocManager::install("pcaMethods")
```
