ridge: Ridge Regression with automatic selection of the penalty parameter


The ridge package offers linear and logistic ridge regression, especially for small data sets and genome-wide SNP data.

Since I only have taken over this package (it was orphaned) - it might be that I can’t help with all details.

Be aware, that therefore I also can not guarantee to 100% that everything works as expected.
