Investigating regions of interest and performing cross-regional analysis with spatial transcriptomics data

Bioconductor version: Release (3.18)

This package analyze spatial transcriptomics data through cross-regional analysis. It selects regions of interest (ROIs) and identifys cross-regional cell type-specific differential signals. The ROIs can be selected using automatic algorithm or through manual selection. It facilitates manual selection of ROIs using a shiny application.
