Blind source separation has found applications in various areas including biomedical signal processing and genomic signal processing. Often, blind source separation is solved via independent component analysis (ICA) by assuming and utilizing mutual independence among source signals. However, in bio-signal and genomic signal processing, the assumption of independence is often untrue, and the performance of the ICA approach is not as good. Much effort has been devoted to searching alternative approaches to blind source separation without the independence assumption. One idea known as network component analysis (NCA) is developed to identify the underlying regulatory signals of transcription factors in the gene regulatory network. In this paper we show that NCA is a general method for blind source separation using a priori information on the mixing matrix. An alternative proof of identifiability using NCA is proposed and a novel method to solve the problem is developed. Validation is made through computer simulations
