A search tool for single cell RNA-seq data by gene lists

Bioconductor version: Release (3.6)

Recently a very large collection of single-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq) datasets has been generated and publicly released. For the collection to be useful, the information must be organized in a way that supports queries that are relevant to researchers. `scfind` builds an index from scRNA-seq datasets which organizes the information in a suitable and compact manner so that the datasets can be very efficiently searched for either cells or cell types in which a given list of genes is expressed.
