countprop: Calculate Model-Based Metrics of Proportionality on Count-Based Compositional Data

This package allows estimation of several types of proportionality metrics for count-based compositional data such as 16S, metagenomic, and single-cell sequencing data. The package includes functions that allow standard empirical estimates of these proportionality metrics, as well as estimates based on the multinomial logit-normal model.
