ComICS: Computational Methods for Immune Cell-Type Subsets

Provided are Computational methods for Immune Cell-type Subsets, including:(1) DCQ (Digital Cell Quantifier) to infer global dynamic changes in immune cell quantities within a complex tissue; and (2) VoCAL (Variation of Cell-type Abundance Loci) a deconvolution-based method that utilizes transcriptome data to infer the quantities of immune-cell types, and then uses these quantitative traits to uncover the underlying DNA loci.
