The source code of the BioinfoStat software for multiple comparisons may be downloaded as a tar archive file. If double-clicking the file does not expand it, type this in the Mac OS X Terminal or UNIX command line after changing the directory:
gnutar -pxf bioinfostat.tar
BioinfoStat is compatible with Windows, UNIX, Linux, and Macintosh operating systems. It requires a recent installation of R, a free statistical computing environment that is similar to S-PLUS.
BioinfoStat implements methods of testing multiple hypotheses, including the bootstrapping methods described in this paper:
