This is the development version of HIPPO; for the stable release version, see HIPPO.

Heterogeneity-Induced Pre-Processing tOol

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

For scRNA-seq data, it selects features and clusters the cells simultaneously for single-cell UMI data. It has a novel feature selection method using the zero inflation instead of gene variance, and computationally faster than other existing methods since it only relies on PCA+Kmeans rather than graph-clustering or consensus clustering.
