SCnorm is an R package which can be used to normalize single-cell RNA-seq data. SCnorm is on Bioconductor and instructions for download may be found at https://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/SCnorm.html.
SCnorm is not intended for datasets with more than ~80% zero counts, often K will not converge in these situations. Setting the FilterExpression parameter to 1 or 2 may help, but is not a guarantee. It may also be helpful to use the ditherCounts = TRUE parameter for sparse UMI based data which may contain numerous tied counts (counts of 1 and 2 for example).
Additional details and a FAQ for SCnorm are described in the vignette: SCnorm Vignette
Make sure to use the latest version of SCnorm by installing it from BioConductor or GitHub.
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly=TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install("SCnorm")
To access a version of SCnorm that does not require R version >= 3.4 you can download SCnorm from the development branch here: https://github.com/rhondabacher/SCnorm/tree/devel

Added additional warnings when using the useSpikes option and SCnorm now supports input data in the sparse matrix format.
Allow separate normalizations for different Conditions for very large dataset. See vignette for example.
