Subject: [R] pearson correlation matrix


I have a set of 12 individuals with thousands of variables measured.
I understand that when I'm using the cor() function on my matrix I'm 
calculating the correlation between the different variables according to 
their values for the different individuals.

What I'm willing to do is to calculate a correlation between the 
individuals and I have no clue how I can do that.
Could you please help me ?
