intcor: Integrative Correlation Analysis

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

View source: R/intcor.R

Description

This function calculates gene-specific reproducibility score based on Parmigiani et al. R implementation in MergeMaid (pairwise.cor) is a very efficient function in that it calculates the correlation matrix only once and collect appropriate elements for calculation of scores for each gene. However, in case there are more than thousands of common genes across datasets, the correlation matrix may overflow memory cells alloted to a session of R. Therefore, a replacement to the function that remedies the storage problem by brute force but fast computation in C is provided here.
