InterCellar: an R-Shiny app for interactive analysis and exploration of cell-cell communication in single-cell transcriptomics

Bioconductor version: 3.16

InterCellar is implemented as an R/Bioconductor Package containing a Shiny app that allows users to interactively analyze cell-cell communication from scRNA-seq data. Starting from precomputed ligand-receptor interactions, InterCellar provides filtering options, annotations and multiple visualizations to explore clusters, genes and functions. Finally, based on functional annotation from Gene Ontology and pathway databases, InterCellar implements data-driven analyses to investigate cell-cell communication in one or multiple conditions.
