BASiCSParams: The BASiCSParams class

Description Parameters

Description

S4 class that holds parameters for the BASiCS simulation.

Parameters

The BASiCS simulation uses the following parameters:

nGenes

The number of genes to simulate.

nCells

The number of cells to simulate.

[seed]

Seed to use for generating random numbers.

Batch parameters
nBatches

Number of batches to simulate.

batchCells

Number of cells in each batch.

Gene parameters
gene.params

A data.frame containing gene parameters with two coloumns: Mean (mean expression for each biological gene) and Delta (cell-to-cell heterogeneity for each biological gene).

Spike-in parameters
nSpikes

The number of spike-ins to simulate.

spike.means

Input molecules for each spike-in.

Cell parameters
cell.params

A data.frame containing gene parameters with two coloumns: Phi (mRNA content factor for each cell, scaled to sum to the number of cells in each batch) and S (capture efficient for each cell).

Variability parameters
theta

Technical variability parameter for each batch.

The parameters not shown in brackets can be estimated from real data using BASiCSEstimate. For details of the BASiCS simulation see BASiCSSimulate.
