Description Details Global Options Version History References


The RBesT tools are designed to support in the derivation of parametric informative priors, asses design characeristics and perform analyses. Supported endpoints include normal, binary and Poisson.


For introductory material, please refer to the vignettes which include

The main function of the package is gMAP. See it's help page for a detailed description of the statistical model.
