#' Performing 'Guilt by Association' Analysis
#'
#' The function runs and evaluates gene function prediction based on the 
#' 'guilt by association'-principle using neighbor voting (\code{\link{neighbor_voting}})
#' [1]. As a measure of performance and significance of results, AUCs of all 
#' evaluated functional groups are calculated.

#' @param network numeric array symmetric, gene-by-gene matrix

#' @param min numeric value to limit gene function size 
#' @param max numeric value to limit gene function size 
#' @param nfold numeric value, default is 3
