A Wellcome Sanger Institute team has developed a new method to cluster cells by genotype using the genetic variants detected within the single-cell RNA sequencing reads. As reported in Nature Methods this week, the technique — called souporcell — uses sparse mixture model clustering with explicit ambient RNA modeling. In benchmarking experiments, souporcell outperforms existing methods, its developers write, and is robust across a range of parameters.
