flotilla 0.3.2

Embark on a journey of single-cell data exploration.


``flotilla`` is a Python package for visualizing transcriptome (RNA expression) data from hundreds of
samples. We include utilities to perform common tasks on these large data matrices, including:

* Dimensionality reduction
* Classification and Regression
* Outlier detection
* Network graphs from covariance
* Hierarchical clustering

And common tasks for biological data including:

* Renaming database features to gene symbols
* Coloring/marking samples based on experimental phenotype
* Removing poor-quality samples (technical outliers)

Finally, ``flotilla`` is a platform for active collaboration between bioinformatics scientists and
traditional "wet lab" scientists. Leveraging `interactive widgets <https:"" ipython="" ipython="" tree="" master="" examples="" interactive%20widgets="">`_
in the `IPython Notebook <http:"" notebook.html="">`_,
we have created tools for simple and streamlined data exploration including:

* Subsetting sample groups and feature (genes/splicing events) groups
* Dynamically adjusting parameters for analysis
* Integrating external lists of features from the web or local files

These empower the "wet lab" scientists to ask questions on their own and gives bioniformatics
scientists a platform and share their analysis tools.

What flotilla is **not**

``flotilla`` is not a genomics pipeline. We expect that you have already generated
data tables for gene expression, isoform expression and metadata. ``flotilla`` only makes
it easy to integrate all those data parts together once you have the pieces.
