Remove Extra Partial Correlations Options

When running the partial correlations feature against an entire dataset, the "Compute" element gives the following options, from which the user can select:

  • Genetic Correlation, Pearson's r
  • Genetic Correlation, Spearman's rho
  • SGO Literature Correlation
  • Tissue Correlation, Pearson's r
  • Tissue Correlation, Spearman's rho

@robw was of the opinion that this is too much, and is entirely unnecessary, suggesting the provision of only two options:

  • Pearson's r
  • Spearman's rho

This will have corresponding changes in code to get rid of all the code dealing with the differences that were inherent in the former 5 options.

As of 2022-06-23T07:06+03:00UTC the changes have not made it to
