Hello R users,

I am excited to introduce a new package for R which is now available on CRAN called �backbone�.
The package can be found here: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/backbone/index.html

The backbone package provides methods for extracting from a weighted graph a binary or signed backbone that retains only the significant edges. The user may input a weighted graph, or a bipartite graph from which a weighted graph is first constructed via projection.

Backbone extraction methods include:
the stochastic degree sequence model (Neal, Z. P. (2014). https://doi.org/10.1016/j.socnet.2014.06.001),
hypergeometric model (Neal, Z. (2013). https://doi.org/10.1007/s13278-013-0107-y),
the fixed degree sequence model (Zweig, K. A., and Kaufmann, M. (2011). https://doi.org/10.1007/s13278-011-0021-0),
as well as a universal threshold method.

A vignette which describes the package in greater detail can be found here: https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/backbone/vignettes/backbone_introduction.html

The package will be constantly updated with new functions and methods.
If you have any backbone extraction methods you would like to see included, please contact the package maintainer Rachel Domagalski at <domagal9 at msu.edu>.

Very best regards,
Rachel Domagalski
