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
You can install the development version of *Cepo* that can be installed
from GitHub using the `remotes` package:
To also build the vignettes use:
remotes::install_github("PYangLab/Cepo", dependencies = TRUE,
build_vignettes = TRUE)
**NOTE:** Building the vignettes requires the installation of additional
