Welcome to the new bioconductor.org!


This is the development version of sparseMatrixStats; for the stable release version, see sparseMatrixStats.

Summary Statistics for Rows and Columns of Sparse Matrices

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

High performance functions for row and column operations on sparse matrices. For example: col / rowMeans2, col / rowMedians, col / rowVars etc. Currently, the optimizations are limited to data in the column sparse format. This package is inspired by the matrixStats package by Henrik Bengtsson.
