SCENIC is an R package to infer Gene Regulatory Networks and cell types from single-cell RNA-seq data.
SCENIC (Single-Cell rEgulatory Network Inference and Clustering) is a computational method to infer Gene Regulatory Networks and cell types from single-cell RNA-seq data.
The description of the method and some usage examples are available in Nature Methods (2017).
There are currently implementations of SCENIC in R (this repository), and in Python. If you don't have a strong prefference for running it in R, we would recommend to check out the SCENIC protocol repository, which contains the Nextflow workflow, and Python/Jupyter notebooks to easily run SCENIC (highly recommended for running it in batch or bigger datasets).
For more details and installation instructions on running SCENIC in
Rsee the tutorials: - Introduction and setup - running SCENIC
The output from the examples is available at: http://scenic.aertslab.org/examples/
