Default Pipeline for inferring tissues from liquid biopsy data

In many cases, solid tissue biopsies cannot be performed in humans. If a liquid biopsy is performed on humans, we can assess microRNA, RNA, and DNA in the blood. These microRNA, RNA, and DNA presumably came from solid tissues. I have read that it can be inferred which tissues these microRNA, RNA, and DNA likely came from.

If that is true, what is the general pipeline for such an analysis (at a high level, i.e. for a non expert)? Are there any resources for a newbie interested in this type of research to better understand this pipeline?
