scINSIGHT for interpreting single-cell gene expression from biologically heterogeneous data.


The increasing number of scRNA-seq data emphasizes the need for integrative analysis to interpret similarities and differences between single-cell samples. Although different batch effect removal methods have been developed, none are suitable for heterogeneous single-cell samples coming from multiple biological conditions. We propose a method, scINSIGHT, to learn coordinated gene expression patterns that are common among, or specific to, different biological conditions, and identify cellular identities and processes across single-cell samples. We compare scINSIGHT with state-of-the-art methods using simulated and real data, which demonstrate its improved performance. Our results show the applicability of scINSIGHT in diverse biomedical and clinical problems.
