What are joint models for longitudinal and survival data? In this post we will introduce in layman's terms the framework of joint models for longitudinal and time-to-event data. These models are applied in settings where the sample units are followed-up in time, for example, we may be interest in patients suffering...

Along with that I’ll zoom in on some of the challenges encountered while adding GitHub and Bioconductor repositories. Rdocumentation
