# Integration of CITE-seq and scRNA-seq data#

Here we demonstrate how to integrate CITE-seq and scRNA-seq datasets with totalVI. The same principles here can be used to integrate CITE-seq datasets with different sets of measured proteins.

[1]:

!pip install --quiet scvi-colab
from scvi_colab import install
install()


[2]:

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import plotnine as p9

import scanpy as sc
import scvi

sc.set_figure_params(figsize=(4, 4))

%config InlineBackend.print_figure_kwargs={'facecolor' : "w"}
%config InlineBackend.figure_format='retina'

Global seed set to 0


Here we focus on two CITE-seq datasets of peripheral blood mononuclear cells from 10x Genomics and used in the totalVI manuscript. We have already filtered these datasets for doublets and low-quality cells and genes.

The quality of totalVI’s protein imputation is somewhat reliant on how well the datasets mix in the latent space. In other words, it’s assumed here the datasets largely share the same cell subpopulations.

[3]:

adata = scvi.data.pbmcs_10x_cite_seq()

Now we hold-out the proteins of the 5k dataset. To do so, we can replace all the values with 0s. We will store the original values to validate after training.

held_out_proteins = adata.obsm["protein_expression"][batch == "PBMC5k"].copy()

Important

scvi-tools will automatically detect proteins as missing in a certain batch if the protein has 0 counts for each cell in the batch. In other words, to indicate a protein is missing in a certain batch, please set it to 0 for each cell.

## Analyze outputs#

Again, we rely on Scanpy.

[11]:

adata.obsm["X_totalVI"] = model.get_latent_representation()

rna, protein = model.get_normalized_expression(transform_batch="PBMC10k", n_samples=25, return_mean=True)


Note

transform_batch is a power parameter. Setting this allows one to predict the expression of cells as if they came from the inputted batch. In this case, we’ve observed protein expression in batch “PBMC10k” (batch categories from original adata object), but we have no protein expression in batch “PBMC5k”. We’d like to take the cells of batch “PBMC5k” and make a counterfactual prediction: “What would the expression look like if my batch “PBMC5k” cells came from batch “PBMC10k”?”

Note

The following is for illustrative purposes. In the code blocks above, we have the denoised protein values for each cell. These values have the expected protein background component removed. However, to compare to the held out protein values, we must include both protein foreground and background. We recommend using the values above for downstream tasks.

## Imputed vs denoised correlations#

[18]:

from scipy.stats import pearsonr
imputed_pros = protein_means[batch == "PBMC5k"]
held_vs_denoised = pd.DataFrame()
held_vs_denoised["Observed (log)"] = np.log1p(held_out_proteins.values.ravel())
held_vs_denoised["Imputed (log)"] = np.log1p(imputed_pros.to_numpy().ravel())
protein_names_corrs = []
for i, p in enumerate(parsed_protein_names):
protein_names_corrs.append(parsed_protein_names[i] + ": Corr=" + str(np.round(pearsonr(held_out_proteins.values[:, i], imputed_pros.iloc[:, i])[0], 3)))
held_vs_denoised["Protein"] = protein_names_corrs * len(held_out_proteins)

[18]:

Observed (log) Imputed (log) Protein
0 3.258097 3.602617 CD3: Corr=0.788
1 5.105945 6.071169 CD4: Corr=0.869
2 2.833213 3.470926 CD8a: Corr=0.835
3 6.546785 7.191322 CD14: Corr=0.912
4 2.995732 4.782370 CD15: Corr=0.056

We notice that CD15 has a really low correlation (imputation accuracy). Recall that imputation involves a counterfactual query – “what would the protein expression have been for these cells if they came from the PBMC10k dataset?” Thus, any technical issues with proteins in CD15 in PBMC10k will be reflected in the imputed values. It’s the case here that CD15 was not captured as well in the PBMC10k dataset compared to the PBMC5k dataset.
