corTest: Robust Tests for Equal Correlation

There are 6 novel robust tests for equal correlation. They are all based on logistic regressions. U are proportion to different types of correlation in 6 methods. The ST1() is based on Pearson correlation. ST2() improved ST1() by using median absolute deviation. ST3() utilized type M correlation and ST4() used Spearman correlation. ST5() and ST6() used two different ways to combine ST3() and ST4(). We highly recommend ST5() according to the passage New Statistical Methods for Constructing Robust Differential Correlation Networks to characterize the interactions among microRNAs published in Scientific Reports.
