For a given number of splits of data based on pooled plasma missing rate, calculate the longest run metric (`run_metric`

) and the correlation metric (`corr_metric`

) for metabolites in each group. Plot the distribution of these metrics for each group color coding those that exceed thresholds.

`df` |
The metabolomics dataset, ideally read from the |

`ppkey` |
The unique prefix of pooled plasma samples. Default is |

`sidkey` |
The unique prefix of biological samples. Default is |

`numsplit` |
The number of equal sized sections to divide metabolites into based on missing rate of pooled plasma columns. Divides the range of missing rates between |

`mincut` |
A cutoff to specify that any metabolite with pooled plasma missing rate less than or equal to this value should be retained. Default is |

`maxcut` |
A cutoff to specify that any metabolite with pooled plasma missing rate greater than this value should be removed. Default is |

`scut` |
The cutoff of missingness to consider a metabolite as having data present in a given biological sample block. Relevant only to |

`cor_rates` |
A vector of length equal to |

`runlengths` |
A vector of length equal to |

`histcolors` |
A vector of length equal to |

Returns histograms showing the correlation metric and longest run metric distributions for each group of the metabolites based on pooled plasma missing rate.

See `MetProc-package`

for examples of running the full process.
