Moana: A robust and scalable cell type classification framework for single-cell RNA-Seq data
This repository contains a Python implementation of the Moana framework for predicting cell types in single-cell RNA-Seq data (Wagner and Yanai, 2018).
Step 1: Install Python and the Python packages that Moana depends on
Moana requires Python version 3.5, 3.6, or 3.7, as well as the Python packages pandas, scikit-learn, and plotly.
The easiest way to install Python as well as these packages is to download and install Anaconda. Anaconda is a distribution of Python that already includes a lot of packages, including pandas, scikit-learn, and plotly. Alternatively, you can download and install Miniconda, and use the conda command to create a new Python 3 environment and install the required packages. The latter option takes up less disk space but also requires some knowledge of how to use conda, the package/environment manager that underlies both Anaconda and Miniconda.
Step 2: Install Moana
To install Moana, make sure you have activated/selected the correct conda environment, and then type:
$ pip install moana
10/30/2018 - Version 0.1.1 released
This is the initial release of Moana. We used this version to construct the cell type classifiers described in our preprint. Additional documentation is forthcoming.
