identifying miRNA sponge interactions using ceRNA.cor function


identifying miRNA sponge interactions using ceRNA.cor.In this function We implement several popular linear methods ( HyperC, SC) to identify miRNA sponge. interactions.


ceRNA.cor(miRtar, targetce = NULL, geneexp, miRexp, numMIR = 1, method = "pearson", 
numrandom = 100)



A data frame representing the relationship between miRNA and target. The data frame contains the name of the miRNA and target regulatory relationship.Required option for method "pearson" and "partial correlation".


a character string (vector) specifying candidate target name to analyse (default (targetce = NULL)).


An input target expression data frame, the columns are genes and the rows are samples.The expression value may be gene expression ,non-coding RNA expression or expression values of circRNAs and so on. Required option for method pearson" and "partial correlation".


An input miRNA expression data frame, the columns are miRNA and the rows are samples. Required option for method pearson" and "partial correlation".


a numeric vector that specify the minimum number of 2 gene-shared miRNAs.


a character string (default "pearson") indicating which statistical method to choose to calculate the ceRNA interaction relationship. One of "pearson" (default), or "partial correlation", can be abbreviated.


The number of random. Required option for method "partial correlation",default (numrandom = 100).


Note:All the arguments without default value must be assigned.

##identifying miRNA sponge interactions
##Here we take the regulatory relationship between six genes and 71 miRNAs  and corresponding
##expression profilesas an example.
ceRNA.cor(miRtar=dataset[["miRtar"]], targetce = NULL, geneexp=dataset[["geneexp"]],
          miRexp=dataset[["miRexp"]], numMIR = 1,method = "pearson", numrandom = 100)
