Reproducibility, Transparency, Simplicity, and Standardization.


Import data from Columbus Instruments CLAMS, Sable Promethion and TSE PhenoMaster.



Full analysis can be produced in minutes after importing raw data, designating groups and selecting time frame.


For all producable plots, users may select preferences such as colors, text size and line width before exporting them.


CalR implements the consensus method of analysis using regression based models and accounting for body mass as a covariate.


Everything leading to analysis is exportable, from excluded data to users' workflows.


Our framework allows quick production of new templates to account for unique experimental conditions.
