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.
