findHVG-DM: Find HVG with the DM approach

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References

Description

It finds highly variable genes using the distance-to-median method proposed in Kolodziejczyk et al. Cell Stem Cell, 2015. I adapted the code from Ximena Ibarra-Soria.

Usage

1
findHVG.DM(data, qMinThr = 0.9, qThr = 0.8, plot = FALSE)

Arguments

data

Please provide the data without any transformation (e.g. log10).

qMinThr

Quantile threshold to discard lowly expressed genes.E.g. if set to 0.9, it will take the data with median above the quantile 0.9 and compute the DM. The ones below (bottom 90%) will be discarded. Default: 0.9.

qThr

Quantile threshold from which to consider a gene highly variable. E.g. If set to 0.8, it will take the most HVG genes falling on the top 20%. Default: 0.8

plot

Logical. Default: FALSE.

Value

vector of HVG.
