This is the development version of Cepo; for the stable release version, see Cepo.

Cepo for the identification of differentially stable genes

Bioconductor version: Development (3.20)

Defining the identity of a cell is fundamental to understand the heterogeneity of cells to various environmental signals and perturbations. We present Cepo, a new method to explore cell identities from single-cell RNA-sequencing data using differential stability as a new metric to define cell identity genes. Cepo computes cell-type specific gene statistics pertaining to differential stable gene expression.
