Reverse engineering of molecular regulatory networks with qp-graphs

Bioconductor version: 2.8

q-order partial correlation graphs, or qp-graphs for short, are undirected Gaussian graphical Markov models built from q-order partial correlations. They are useful for learning undirected graphical Gaussian Markov models from data sets where the number of random variables p exceeds the available sample size n as, for instance, in the case of microarray data where they can be employed to reverse engineer a molecular regulatory network.
