Bioconductor – BiRewire


This package is for version 3.0 of Bioconductor;
for the stable, up-to-date release version, see

High-performing routines for the randomization of a bipartite graph (or a binary event matrix) preserving degree distribution (or marginal totals).

Bioconductor version: 3.0

Fast functions for bipartite network rewiring through N consecutive switching steps (See References) and for the computation of the minimal number of switching steps to be performed in order to maximise the dissimilarity with respect to the original network. Includes function for the analysis of the introduced randomness across the switching and several other routines to analyse the resulting networks and their natural projections. Extension to undirected networks (not bipartite) is also provided.
