This upload consists of a dataset that can be used as a CHETAH reference to classify any single-cell RNA-sequencing dataset, but is made for tumor micro-environment data.

CHETAH_TME_reference.Rdata is a dataset that consists of four pubically available (see below) tumor micro-environment single-cell RNA-sequencing datasets. All data was downloaded in the TPM or FKPM format. Each dataset was normalized to 400.000 reads per cell and all values transformed into the log2 space. Only the genes that were present in all datasets were kept.

ribosomal.txt contains ribosomal protein genes from GO-term 'cytosolic ribosome' 0022626, which could be discarded from a CHETAH reference dataset.

The data of the CHETAH_tumor_reference were obtained from the following publications:
