CandidateBacon: Provides a measure of the average connectedness among as set of candidate genes and a network-specific distribution of the connectedness of random gene pairs for an arbitrary network of pair wise interactions.
Version 1.0

Selection of candidate genes is an important step in the exploration of complex genetic architecture. However, it can cause misleading results if not validated properly. The CandidateBacon package is a simple tool that provides such validation and ensures that proposed interaction networks are not statistical artifacts.
