Jmendo12/evemodel: Expression Variance Evolution Model

An implementation of the Expression variance evolution model in R. The EVE Model provides a new method for joint analyses of quantitative traits within and between species. The model parametrizes the ratio of population to evolutionary expression variance, and implements analyses such as a test for lineage specific shifts in expression level, and a phylogenetic ANOVA that can detect genes with increased or decreased ratios of expression divergence to diversity. The model can be used for purposes such as identifying genes with high expression divergence between species as candidates for expression level adaptation, and genes with high expression diversity within species as candidates for expression level conservation and or plasticity. The model can also be used for lineage-specific expression shifts in which candidate genes can be determined for expression level adaptation.
