Recovering Reproducible and Local Signal in Genomic Data

One of the most important challenge in biological science today is to elucidate the extent to which complex experiments, which measure hundreds of thousands of variables, can be analyzed to generate consistent and global signal when repeated, to identify local signal related to tissues, cancer types or population structure. Importantly, we must include the intrinsic diversity of variation across different studies and control for technical confounders as part of this task.
