Makes use of SRV to preprocess metabolomic data for dimensionality reduction by statistical recoupling of variables

1 | ```
pre_mQTL(infile, outfile, met, corrT = 0.9)
``` |

`infile` |
metabolomic datafile |

`outfile` |
reduced metabolomic datafile |

`met` |
used statistical summary |

`corrT` |
correlation threshold |

The SRV algorithm forms clusters of variables using a measure of a local spectral dependency. Then tests whether consecutive clusters are correlated to aggregate them into a single supercluster.

The algorithm:

variables are associated into a series of clusters.

integration of clusters into superclusters.
