SingleCell - Percentage of Expressing Cells

From Array Suite Wiki


The view is available for all UMI SingleCell lands. In order to access it:

  • open a UMI-based Single Cell Land
  • search for a gene
  • “Select View” - scRNA-Seq Quantification section.


This View displays the percentage of cells expressing a gene of interest for each clusterCellType, or any other metadata of interest. This View is useful for emphasizing how many cells express your gene of interest, regardless of the detected level.
