I am working on correlation analysis and stuck on How to calculate the correlation between numerical data and non-numerical data? From the sample data given below, as usual, correlation is computed between two numerical data For e.g. between mRNA expression of myc and expression of P53. But how to calculate the correlation between a numeric and a non-numeric data For e.g between mRNA expression and mutation status of TP53. IS there any method or package in R that would compute the value of correlation 'r' with P values. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Sample MYC exp TP53 exp TP53 status 1 11.68583 6.338739 WT 2 9.668901 6.192507 MUT 3 8.080415 6.404516 WT 4 8.296929 6.869241 WT 5 9.446335 6.337951 MUT 6 7.958141 5.419711 MUT 7 7.423971 5.992706 WT 8 7.394608 6.16542 WT 9 10.97504 6.220372 MUT 10 5.756091 6.411477 WT
