After a while I write back to comment about the preprint : "Benchmarking joint multi-omics dimensionality reduction approaches for cancer study". First, I'll explain why I comment here: On 20th September 2019 I saw on twitter a poster about multiomics mentioing RGCCA, which I have been using for a while.
