makemim {c3net}R Documentation

Constructing mutual information matrix

Description

makemim takes the data set as input and computes mutual information values for each pair of variables (e.g. gene). - see details.

Usage

makemim( expdata )

Arguments

expdata

Data matrix where rows correspond to variables (e.g. genes) and columns to samples.

Details

A mutual information matrix is generated from a data set using an empirical Gaussian estimator.
