Marieke joined the editorial board of the new Oxford University Press journal Bioinformatics Advances. Bioinformatics Advances is an interdisciplinary journal on bioinformatics and computational biology that covers bioinformatics methods as well as biological contributions for which the application of advanced computational methods is essential. Published jointly by Oxford University Press and by the International Society for Computational Biology, it is a fully open access, peer-reviewed journal....

We have a new BioRχiv pre-print by Ping-Han! Ping-Han found that certain normalization methods, in specific quantile-based methods, can introduce false positive associations in co-expression measurements. However, there methods can be very powerful. Smooth quantile normalization, for example, allows one to normalize heterogeneous data, while keeping global expression differences between different subgroups of samples. Ping-Han therefore developed a new algorithm, called CAIMAN, to correct for these false-positive associations....
