NormalGamma: Normal-gamma convolution model
Version 1.1

The functions proposed in this package compute the density of the sum of a Gaussian and a gamma random variables, estimate the parameters and correct the noise effect in a gamma-signal and Gaussian-noise model. This package has been used to implement the background correction method for Illumina microarray data presented in Plancade S., Rozenholc Y. and Lund E. "Generalization of the normal-exponential model : exploration of a more accurate parameterization for the signal distribution on Illumina BeadArrays", BMC Bioinfo 2012, 13(329).
