spqn-package: Spatial quantile normalization

Description Details References


The spqn package implements spatial quantile normalization (SpQN). This method was developed to remove a mean-correlation relationship in correlation matrices built from gene expression data. It can serve as pre-processing step prior to a co-expression analysis.


See references for details on spatial quantile normalization.

The main function is normalize_correlation. We include a number of plotting functions for examining the mean-correlation relationship, see the vignette for examples.
