Registration Open for Bioc2024 July 24-26


Brings SpatialExperiment to the tidyverse

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

tidySpatialExperiment provides a bridge between the SpatialExperiment package and the tidyverse ecosystem. It creates an invisible layer that allows you to interact with a SpatialExperiment object as if it were a tibble; enabling the use of functions from dplyr, tidyr, ggplot2 and plotly. But, underneath, your data remains a SpatialExperiment object.
