co-expression of lincRNAs and protein-coding genes

Bioconductor version: 3.8

This package provides methods to compute co-expression networks of lincRNAs and protein-coding genes. Biological terms associated with the sets of protein-coding genes predict the biological contexts of lincRNAs according to the 'Guilty by Association' approach.
