Uses a kernel smoothing approach to calculate Mutual Information for comparisons between all types of variables including continuous vs continuous, continuous vs discrete and discrete vs discrete. Uses a nonparametric bias correction giving Bias Corrected Mutual Information (BCMI). Implemented efficiently in Fortran 95 with OpenMP and suited to large genomic datasets.
