Schex avoids overplotting for large single cell RNA-sequencing datasets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


SUMMARY: Due to the scale and sparsity of single cell RNA-sequencing data, traditional plots can obscure vital information. Our R package schex overcomes this by implementing hexagonal binning, which has the additional advantages of improving speed and reducing storage for resulting plots.

AVAILABILITY: schex is freely available from Bioconductor via and its development version can be accessed on GitHub via
