PCIT: Partial Correlation Coefficient with Information Theory
Apply Partial Correlation coefficient with Information
Theory (PCIT) to a correlation matrix.
The PCIT algorithm identifies meaningful correlations to define
edges in a weighted network. The algorithm can be applied to
any correlation-based network including but not limited to gene
To reduce compute time by making use of multiple compute cores,
simply run PCIT on a computer with has multiple cores and also
has the Rmpi package installed. PCIT will then auto-detect the
multicore environment and run in parallel mode without the need
to rewrite your scripts. This makes scripts, using PCIT, portable
across single core (or no Rmpi package installed) computers
which will run in serial mode and multicore (with Rmpi package
installed) computers which will run in parallel mode.
