[R] estimating missing data

The knn algorithm imputes the missing value by finding k-closest/similiar
(Euclidean or correlation) rows. Should be useful for genetic data whereby
genes (rows) that are co-regulated have the similiar expression profiles.
?knn gives you reference to paper that compare this method with SVDimpute
and row averages.
There is a library called 'missing' in S-PLUS which does EM besides many
other fairly involved multiple imputation algorithms. It comes supplied with
a 170 page help manual. But I know of no similiar versions in R. Sorry if
this isn't very helpful.
