Higher-order chromatin domain inference in single cells from scRNA-seq and scATAC-seq

Bioconductor version: Release (3.18)

Compartmap performs direct inference of higher-order chromatin from scRNA-seq and scATAC-seq. This package implements a James-Stein estimator for computing single-cell level higher-order chromatin domains. Further, we utilize random matrix theory as a method to de-noise correlation matrices to achieve a similar "plaid-like" patterning as observed in Hi-C and scHi-C data.
