Information partition between residual and projected space. The data comparisons demonstrate the partitioning of information between projected data Sn and residual data Sr in comparison to the original data. The x-axis shows p-values of differential gene expression in the original data, while the y-axis shows p-values for projected (blue) and residual (red) data. Qualitative different types of information partitioning are demonstrated: (a) Type 1: control tissues are compared with lung cancer samples, (b) Type 2: non-smoker (no stress response) lung tissue is compared with smoker (stress response) samples, (c) Type 3: metastatic breast cancer tissue compared with non-metastatic samples.
