The goal of PROMISE.scrub is to provide functions that help with cleaning and preparing the PROMISE dataset for eventual use in analyses and research projects. There are several of these packages that all work to make it easier to handle the different needs of preparing the PROMISE dataset, at least from a data management point of view, to be trustworthy and of sufficient quality control.


You can install PROMISE.scrub from GitHub with:

# install.packages("devtools")


This package and it’s functions are used in the main PROMISE package to prepare the data into a tidy format. Please see the associated PROMISE documentation for more details about usage.
