scRecover for imputation of single-cell RNA-seq data

Bioconductor version: 3.17

scRecover is an R package for imputation of single-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq) data. It will detect and impute dropout values in a scRNA-seq raw read counts matrix while keeping the real zeros unchanged, since there are both dropout zeros and real zeros in scRNA-seq data. By combination with scImpute, SAVER and MAGIC, scRecover not only detects dropout and real zeros at higher accuracy, but also improve the downstream clustering and visualization results.
