Structure learning for zero-inflated counts, with an application to single-cell RNA sequencing data

by   Thi Kim Hue Nguyen, et al.

The problem of estimating the structure of a graph from observed data is of growing interest in the context of high-throughput genomic data, and single-cell RNA sequencing in particular. These, however, are challenging applications, since the data consist of high-dimensional counts with high variance and over-abundance of zeros. Here, we present a general framework for learning the structure of a graph from single-cell RNA-seq data, based on the zero-inflated negative binomial distribution. We demonstrate with simulations that our approach is able to retrieve the structure of a graph in a variety of settings and we show the utility of the approach on real data.
