I am dealing with a dataset with a lot of tied correlations and wanted to make a network with the correlation coefficient being Kendall's Tau instead of Pearson. I can easily get the clustering to be done with Kendall's Tau using the bioDist package, however, I have yet to figure out how to create the network or using the blockwiseModules function using Kendall's Tau. 

Any help or advice will be much appreciated!

Depending on how big is your dataset you should follow the manual strategy. This will allow you to create the adjacency matrix for looking for the modules.
