`EWCE`: `E`xpression `W`eighted `C`elltype `E`nrichment ================ <img height='200' src=''><br><br> [![](]( [![](]( [![R build status](]( [![](]( [![](]( [![](]( [![License: GPL-3](]( <h4> Authors: <i>Alan Murphy, Brian Schilder, Nathan Skene</i> </h4> <h4> README updated: <i>Feb-09-2022</i> </h4> <!-- To modify Package/Title/Description/Authors fields, edit the DESCRIPTION file --> ## Introduction The *EWCE* R package is designed to facilitate expression weighted cell type enrichment analysis as described in our *Frontiers in Neuroscience* paper.<sup>1</sup> *EWCE* can be applied to any gene list. Using *EWCE* essentially involves two steps: 1. Prepare a single-cell reference; i.e. CellTypeDataset (CTD). Alternatively, you can use one of the pre-generated CTDs we provide via the package `ewceData` (which comes with *EWCE*). 2. Run cell type enrichment on a user-provided gene list. ## Installation *EWCE* requires [`R>=4.1`]( and `Bioconductor>=3.14`. To install *EWCE* on Bioconductor run: ``` r if (!require("BiocManager")){install.packages("BiocManager")} BiocManager::install("EWCE") ``` ## Documentation ### [Website]( **NOTE**: This documentation is for the development version of `EWCE`. See [Bioconductor]( for documentation on the current release version. ### [Getting started]( Includes: - A minimal example to get started with running *EWCE*. - How to install and use the dedicated *EWCE* Docker container usage. [Docker]( containers with the latest version of `EWCE` are regularly pushed to [Dockerhub]( ### [Extended examples]( Additional tutorials of various *EWCE* features, including how to: - Run cell-type enrichment tests - Create a CellTypeDataset - Merge two single-cell datasets - Run conditional cell-type enrichment tests - Apply to transcriptomic data ## Updates Major upgrades to *EWCE* were made in version 1.3.1. Please see the [NEWS page]( for more details. ## Troubleshooting If you have any problems, please do submit an [Issue here on GitHub]( with a reproducible example. ## Citation If you use `EWCE`, please cite: <!-- Modify this my editing the file: inst/CITATION --> > Nathan G.
