A Windows command-line application that implements a Bayesian wavelet-based functional mixed model methodology for functional data analysis. WFMM can be generally applied to any complex functional data sampled on a fine grid, not just methylation data, and so can be readily applied to other genome-wide data including copy number and tiling transcriptome arrays. The method is computationally intensive, but the software is optimized so that it can handle very large data sets.
