Function to integrate data sets measured on the same samples (N-integration) and to combine multiple independent studies measured on the same variables or predictors (P-integration) using variants of multi-group and generalised PLS (unsupervised analysis).

`X` |
A list of data sets (called 'blocks') measured on the same samples. Data in the list should be arranged in samples x variables, with samples order matching in all data sets. |

`Y` |
Matrix or vector response for a multivariate regression framework. Data should be continuous variables (see |

`indY` |
To be supplied if Y is missing, indicates the position of the matrix / vector response in the list |

`study` |
factor indicating the membership of each sample to each of the studies being combined |

`ncomp` |
the number of components to include in the model. Default to 2. |

`design` |
numeric matrix of size (number of blocks) x (number of blocks) with only 0 or 1 values. A value of 1 (0) indicates a relationship (no relationship) between the blocks to be modelled. If |

`scheme` |
Either "horst", "factorial" or "centroid". Default = |

`mode` |
character string. What type of algorithm to use, (partially) matching
one of |

`scale` |
boleean. If scale = TRUE, each block is standardized to zero means and unit variances (default: TRUE) |

`init` |
Mode of initialization use in the algorithm, either by Singular Value Decompostion of the product of each block of X with Y ("svd") or each block independently ("svd.single"). Default = |

`tol` |
Convergence stopping value. |

`max.iter` |
integer, the maximum number of iterations. |

`near.zero.var` |
boolean, see the internal |

`all.outputs` |
boolean. Computation can be faster when some specific (and non-essential) outputs are not calculated. Default = |

The function fits multi-group generalised PLS models with a specified number of `ncomp`

components.
An outcome needs to be provided, either by `Y`

or by its position `indY`

in the list of blocks `X`

.

Multi (continuous)response are supported. `X`

and `Y`

can contain missing values. Missing values are handled by being disregarded during the cross product computations in the algorithm `block.pls`

without having to delete rows with missing data. Alternatively, missing data can be imputed prior using the `nipals`

function.

The type of algorithm to use is specified with the `mode`

argument. Four PLS
algorithms are available: PLS regression `("regression")`

, PLS canonical analysis
`("canonical")`

, redundancy analysis `("invariant")`

and the classical PLS
algorithm `("classic")`

(see References and more details in `?pls`

).

`mint.block.pls`

returns an object of class `"mint.pls", "block.pls"`

, a list
that contains the following components:

`X` |
the centered and standardized original predictor matrix. |

`Y` |
the centered and standardized original response vector or matrix. |

`ncomp` |
the number of components included in the model for each block. |

`mode` |
the algorithm used to fit the model. |

`mat.c` |
matrix of coefficients from the regression of X / residual matrices X on the X-variates, to be used internally by |

`variates` |
list containing the |

`loadings` |
list containing the estimated loadings for the variates. |

`names` |
list containing the names to be used for individuals and variables. |

`nzv` |
list containing the zero- or near-zero predictors information. |

`tol` |
the tolerance used in the iterative algorithm, used for subsequent S3 methods |

`max.iter` |
the maximum number of iterations, used for subsequent S3 methods |

`iter` |
Number of iterations of the algorthm for each component |
