Table 1 Description of the simulation parameters

From: Pooling across cells to normalize single-cell RNA sequencing data with many zero counts

Symbol Description
θ j Cell-specific bias for cell j
λ is Expected number of transcripts for gene i in subpopulation s
ϕ is DE fold change for gene i in subpopulation s
λ i0 Baseline expectation for the number of transcripts
  (i.e., without DE) for gene i
φ i NB dispersion for gene i
ϕ s DE fold change for all upregulated genes in subpopulation s
G Number of unique DE genes in each subpopulation
p s Proportion of DE genes that are upregulated in subpopulation s
  1. DE differentially expressed, NB negative binomial
