German researchers present a computational strategy for pulling together data from multiple omics sources when doing biological assessments of gene sets. The team outlined the rationale behind its "Multi-level Ontology Analysis" algorithm, nicknamed MONA, in the study, demonstrating that the model-based method could accurately deal with multiple levels of information — both synthetic data and data generated for three studies using various molecular profiling types.
