Project description


Scripts for using scanpy from the command line

In order to wrap scanpy's internal workflow in any given workflow language, it's important to have scripts to call each of those steps. These scripts are being written here, and will improve in completeness as time progresses.


conda install scanpy-scripts
# or
pip3 install scanpy-scripts
