Description

Miscellaneous methods for the SingleCellExperiment class that do not fit in any other documentation category.

Available methods

In the following code snippets, x and object are SingleCellExperiment objects.

show(object):

Print a message to screen describing the contents of object.

objectVersion(x):

Return the version of the package with which x was constructed.

sizeFactors(object):

Return a numeric vector of size factors of length equal to ncol(object). If no size factors are available in object, return NULL instead.

sizeFactors(object) <- value:

Replace the size factors with value, usually expected to be a numeric vector or vector-like object. Alternatively, value can be NULL in which case any size factors in object are removed.
