b-coli/ICITools: R Implementation of Tools for Calculating the Index of Cell Identity

ICITools is an implementation of the method for computation of a Specificity Score table given cell-type specific gene expression data. ICItools also contains functions that implement the computaiton of the Index of Cell Identity to identify the most likely cell type of a gene expression profile. The two computationally intensive steps implemented by this package (compute_spec_table and compute_ici_scores) are compatible with the furrr::future_map function, enabling parallelization for multicore machines. The methods in this package were originally developed and described by Efroni, et al. (2015).
