  "abstract": "<p>This repository contains a collection of three datasets we use to introduce the Gene Mover Distance in [1] and described below. The three datasets are exported with a basic text-based format (.csv file) like other public datasets largely used in the Machine Learning community.</p>\n\n<p>The three datasets are extracted from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database [2], where they appear, respectively,&nbsp;with access number&nbsp;GSE116256 (blood leukemia, [3]), GSE84133 (human pancreas, [4]), and GSE67835 (human brain, [5]). In GEO, the datasets are decomposed into several files, which contain much more details than those reported in this version.</p>\n\n<p>However, the proposed format should facilitate other researchers in using this data.</p>\n\n<p>The Gene Mover&#39;s Distance is a measure of similarity between a pair of cells based on their gene expression profiles obtained via single-cell RNA sequencing. The underlying idea of GMD is to interpret the gene expression array of a single cell as a discrete probability measure. The distance between two cells is hence computed by solving an Optimal Transport problem between the two corresponding discrete measures. The Gene Mover&#39;s Distance can be used, for instance, to solve two classification problems: the classification of cells according to their condition and according to their type.</p>\n\n<p>The repository contains a python script to check the basic statistics of the data.</p>\n\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p>[1] Bellazzi, R., Codegoni, A., Gualandi, S., Nicora, G., Vercesi, E. <em>The Gene Mover&#39;s Distance: Single-cell similarity via Optimal Transport</em>. <a href=\"\"></a></p>\n\n<p>[2] Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database, <a href=\"\"></a></p>\n\n<p>[3] van Galen, P., Hovestadt, V., Wadsworth II, M.H., Hughes, T.K., Griffin, G.K., Battaglia, S., Verga, J.A., Stephansky, J., Pastika, T.J., Story, J.L. and Pinkus, G.S., 2019. <em>Single-cell RNA-seq reveals AML hierarchies relevant to disease progression and immunity</em>.
