Table 1 Data sets considered in this work. The ’genes’ column lists the number of non-zero genes detected in the data set. The peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) data set from [2] appears twice in this table: ZHENGFILT contains a subset of the full data set ZHENGFULL. See experimental data for more information. ZHENGSIM is a collection of simulated data sets created with the Splatter R package; see the generating synthetic data in the Methods sections for more information
