Human diseases show considerable heterogeneity at the molecular level. Such heterogeneity is central to personalized medicine efforts that seek to exploit molecular data to better understand disease biology and inform clinical decision making. An emerging notion is that diseases and disease subgroups may differ with respect to patterns of molecular interplay. I will discuss our ongoing efforts to develop statistical methods to investigate such heterogeneity.
