This package is for version 3.17 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see dcanr.

Differential co-expression/association network analysis

Bioconductor version: 3.17

This package implements methods and an evaluation framework to infer differential co-expression/association networks. Various methods are implemented and can be evaluated using simulated datasets. Inference of differential co-expression networks can allow identification of networks that are altered between two conditions (e.g., health and disease).
