I'm relatively new in this area. Is there instances where published public domain data is reanalysed similar to its original context and reported? Are such papers accepted by well known journals?
As technology and our understanding improves we can generate more information but are there any interest to reanalyse published data? How about ethics? Bioinformatics allows this oppurtunity to analyse or extend existing pool of knowledge but I haven't seen much people out there except those involved in large scale projects/collaborations. Please share your experiences or any papers that are relevant.
