Single-cell RNAseq cell cluster labelling by reference

Bioconductor version: 3.16

After the clustering step of a single-cell RNAseq experiment, this package aims to suggest labels/cell types for the clusters, on the basis of similarity to a reference dataset. It requires a table of read counts per cell per gene, and a list of the cells belonging to each of the clusters, (for both test and reference data).
