Example: Top 5 co-expressed gene list for gene A
We do not introduce any cut-off threshold. Namely even if the correlation value between two loci is insignificantly low, the ranks are numbered from the strongest pair to the weakest pair.
Correlation rank is asymmetric, namely the rank of gene B from gene A is not the same as the rank of gene A from gene B.
And thus, the geometric averaged rank between the two directional ranks is used, which we call Mutual Rank (MR).
|MR(AB) = √ (Rank(A→B) x Rank(B→A))|
