    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The three datasets are extracted from the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database [2], where they appear, respectively,&amp;nbsp;with access number&amp;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;However, the proposed format should facilitate other researchers in using this data.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The Gene Mover&amp;#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&amp;#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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The repository contains a python script to check the basic statistics of the data.&lt;/p&gt;
