cellanneal: A User-Friendly Deconvolution Software for Omics Data

  title={cellanneal: A User-Friendly Deconvolution Software for Omics Data},
  author={Lisa Buchauer and Shalev Itzkovitz},
We introduce cellanneal, a python-based software for deconvolving bulk RNA sequencing data. cellanneal relies on the optimization of Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient between experimental and computational mixture gene expression vectors using simulated annealing. cellanneal can be used as a python package or via a command line interface, but importantly also provides a simple graphical user interface which is distributed as a single executable file for user convenience. The python… 


Benchmarking of cell type deconvolution pipelines for transcriptomics data
Overall, methods that use scRNA-seq data have comparable performance to the best performing bulk methods whereas semi-supervised approaches show higher error values.
AutoGeneS: Automatic gene selection using multi-objective optimization for RNA-seq deconvolution
This work introduces AutoGeneS, a tool that automatically extracts informative genes and reveals the cellular heterogeneity of bulk RNA samples that requires no prior knowledge about marker genes and selects genes by simultaneously optimizing multiple criteria: minimizing the correlation and maximizing the distance between cell types.
A likelihood-based deconvolution of bulk gene expression data using single-cell references
A generative model and a likelihood-based inference method that uses asymptotic statistical theory and a novel optimization procedure to perform deconvolution of bulk RNA-seq data to produce accurate cell type proportion estimates is proposed.
Accurate estimation of cell composition in bulk expression through robust integration of single-cell information
Bisque implements a regression-based approach that utilizes single-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq) data to generate a reference expression profile and learn gene-specific bulk expression transformations to robustly decompose RNA- seq data, which significantly improve decomposition performance compared to existing methods.
Seaborn: Statistical Data Visualization
seaborn is a library for making statistical graphics in Python. It provides a high-level interface to matplotlib and integrates closely with pandas data structures. Functions in the seaborn library
Comprehensive evaluation of transcriptome-based cell-type quantification methods for immuno-oncology
It is demonstrated that computational deconvolution performs at high accuracy for well-defined cell- type signatures and proposed how fuzzy cell-type signatures can be improved, and suggested that future efforts should be dedicated to refining cell population definitions and finding reliable signatures.
Bulk tissue cell type deconvolution with multi-subject single-cell expression reference
A new method for estimating cell type proportions from bulk tissue RNA-seq data guided by multi-subject single-cell expression reference, which enables the characterization of cellular heterogeneity of complex tissues for understanding of disease mechanisms.
Determining cell-type abundance and expression from bulk tissues with digital cytometry
The utility of CIBERSORTx is evaluated in multiple tumor types, including melanoma, where single-cell reference profiles were used to dissect bulk clinical specimens, revealing cell-type-specific phenotypic states linked to distinct driver mutations and response to immune checkpoint blockade.
Robust enumeration of cell subsets from tissue expression profiles
CIBERSORT outperformed other methods with respect to noise, unknown mixture content and closely related cell types when applied to enumeration of hematopoietic subsets in RNA mixtures from fresh, frozen and fixed tissues, including solid tumors.
Simultaneous enumeration of cancer and immune cell types from bulk tumor gene expression data
An efficient algorithm to simultaneously estimate the fraction of cancer and immune cell types from bulk tumor gene expression data is presented, which provides a unique novel experimental benchmark for immunogenomics analyses in cancer research.
