Is smart-seq matrix human multiple cortical areas normalized?


Can someone clarify if the counts in the smart-seq matrices for human cell types have been normalized (CPM)? If not is this dataset also available for normalized values?



According to the readme: “Gene expression data matrices (matrix.csv): This file csv contains one row for every cell in the dataset and one column for every gene sequenced. The values of the matrix represent total reads (introns + exons) for that gene (column) for that cell (row).” This means that the data is not normalized. Data can be converted to CPM (or logCPM) using python or R (e.g., with a single line of code in the scrattch.hicat R library).
