The Discordant Method: A Novel Approach for Differential Correlation

Bioconductor version: 3.16

Discordant is an R package that identifies pairs of features that correlate differently between phenotypic groups, with application to -omics data sets. Discordant uses a mixture model that “bins” molecular feature pairs based on their type of coexpression or coabbundance. Algorithm is explained further in "Differential Correlation for Sequencing Data"" (Siska et al. 2016).
