estimateNetwork: Estimate network between active regulators using Nested...

View source: R/estimateNetwork.R

Description

Given a biRte model, this function makes posterior inference about possible upstream-downstream relationships between active regulators. This is done based on observed differential expression of putative target genes. The idea is that regulator A acts upstream of regulator B, if differentially expressed targets of B are a subset of those of A.
