I have a theoretical question regarding the DIABLO analysis. It is my understanding that is able to take multiple -omics platforms. Is there any “structure” that the data needs to be theoretically organized? For example, one could say that DNA goes to mRNA which goes to protein. If you have mRNA and protein data, protein would be at a “higher” level than mRNA data.
But suppose I have two omics datasets from the same level (e.g. the brain, [brain morphometry and brain connectivity]), would DIABLO be appropriate for this?
