Multiple Co-Inertia Analysis via the NIPALS Method

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

Computes Multiple Co-Inertia Analysis (MCIA), a dimensionality reduction (jDR) algorithm, for a multi-block dataset using a modification to the Nonlinear Iterative Partial Least Squares method (NIPALS) proposed in (Hanafi et. al, 2010). Allows multiple options for row- and table-level preprocessing, and speeds up computation of variance explained. Vignettes detail application to bulk- and single cell- multi-omics studies.
