The objective of this three days Autumn School is to introduce the fundamental concepts of multivariate dimension reduction methodologies. Those methods are particularly useful for data exploration and integration of large data sets, and especially in the context of systems biology, or in research areas where statistical data integration is required. Each methodology that will be presented during the course will be applied on biological “omics” studies including transcriptomics, metabolomics and proteomics data sets using the R package mixOmics (
