“celda” stands for “CEllular Latent Dirichlet Allocation”. It is a suite of Bayesian hierarchical models and supporting functions to perform gene and cell clustering for count data generated by single cell RNA-seq platforms. This algorithm is an extension of the Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) topic modeling framework that has been popular in text mining applications. This package also includes a method called DecontX which can be used to estimate and remove contamination in single cell genomic data.
