PHATE - Visualizing Transitions and Structure for Biological Data Exploration
If you would like to get started using PHATE, check out our guided tutorial in Python.
If you have loaded a data matrix
data in Python (cells on rows, genes on columns) you can run PHATE as follows:
import phate phate_op = phate.PHATE() data_phate = phate_op.fit_transform(data)
PHATE accepts the following data types:
PHATE (Potential of Heat-diffusion for Affinity-based Trajectory Embedding) is a tool for visualizing high dimensional data. PHATE uses a novel conceptual framework for learning and visualizing the manifold to preserve both local and global distances.
To see how PHATE can be applied to datasets such as facial images and single-cell data from human embryonic stem cells, check out our publication in Nature Biotechnology.
