  • pc_key (str) – component key stored in adata.uns. Defaults to “PCs”.

  • n_top_genes (int) – number of top genes as valid top genes in each component. Defaults to 100.

  • pc_components (Optional[int]) – number of top principle components to use. Defaults to None.

  • adata_store_key (str) – the key for storing pca genes. Defaults to “top_pca_genes”.

Raises

Exception – invalid pc_key.

Return type

AnnData

Returns

The AnnData object with top genes stored as values of adata.var[adata_store_key].
