A Correlation Based Multiview Self Organizing Maps Clustering For IMC Datasets

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

A correlation-based multiview self-organizing map for the characterization of cell types in highly multiplexed in situ imaging cytometry assays (`FuseSOM`) is a tool for unsupervised clustering. `FuseSOM` is robust and achieves high accuracy by combining a `Self Organizing Map` architecture and a `Multiview` integration of correlation based metrics. This allows FuseSOM to cluster highly multiplexed in situ imaging cytometry assays.
