Documented in correlationPlot

#' Correlation plot to compare estimated correlations with true correlations.
#'
#' \code{correlationPlot} produces a correlation plot to compare true and estimated
#'	correlations.
#'
#' @param true A matrix of true gene-gene correlation values.
#' @param est A matrix of estimated gene expression values.
#' @param plot.genes A vector of indices of genes used in plotting; the suggested length of this vector is 18.
#' @param boxes A logical scalar to indicate whether boxes 
#' are drawn around sets of 6 genes; only available if \code{plot.genes} has length 18.
#' @param title A character string describing the title of the plot.
#' @return \code{correlationPlot} returns a plot.
#'
#' @details
#' The upper triangle of the correlation plot shows the true gene-gene correlation values,
#' while the lower triangle of the correlation plot shows the gene-gene correlation values
#' calculated from the estimated gene expression values. This is possible because correlation
#' matrices are symmetric.
