copula {c3net}R Documentation

Copula transformation of data set

Description

copula takes a data set as input and applies a copula transformation - see details.

Usage

copula( expdata )

Arguments

expdata

Data set; rows correspond to variables (e.g. genes) and columns to samples.

Details

The data set can be copula transformed for more stable estimations of the mutual information matrix. Each row of the data set (gene samples of each gene) is copula transformed and obtained rdata. Here, the formula for conversion is copuladata =(rdata- 0.5)/numberofsamples.

Value

copula returns a copula transformed data set.
