Factorial Latent Variable Modeling of Single-Cell RNA-Seq Data

Bioconductor version: Release (3.7)

slalom is a scalable modelling framework for single-cell RNA-seq data that uses gene set annotations to dissect single-cell transcriptome heterogeneity, thereby allowing to identify biological drivers of cell-to-cell variability and model confounding factors.
