This package is for version 3.16 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see sparseMatrixStats.

Summary Statistics for Rows and Columns of Sparse Matrices

Bioconductor version: 3.16

High performance functions for row and column operations on sparse matrices. For example: col / rowMeans2, col / rowMedians, col / rowVars etc. Currently, the optimizations are limited to data in the column sparse format. This package is inspired by the matrixStats package by Henrik Bengtsson.
