In this first series, we will focus on factorization methods. We will show the key concepts of some pervasive approaches and how they translate to MSI data. We will apply all methods to the same data set, to facilitate comparison. In this first post, we will discuss three linear approaches, namely Principal Component Analysis (PCA), PCA + Varimax and Independent Component Analysis (ICA).

In this blog post, we continue our overview of unsupervised data analysis approaches commonly used in MSI, diving deeper into factorization methods. This time we will take a closer look at the results of principal component analysis (PCA) in MSI, and compare these to the results of nonnegative matrix factorization (NMF).
