  • mdata – MuData object

  • n_neighbors (int (default: 20)) – Number of neighbours to be used in the K-nearest neighbours step

  • neighbor_keys (Keys in .uns where per-modality neighborhood information is stored. Defaults to "neighbors".) – If set as a dictionary, only the modalities present in neighbor_keys will be used for multimodal nearest neighbor search. If set as a string, has to exist in all modalities.

  • key_added (If not specified, the multimodal neighbors data is stored in .uns["neighbors"], distances and) – connectivities are stored in .obsp["distances"] and .obsp["connectivities"], respectively. If specified, the neighbors data is added to .uns[key_added], distances are stored in .obsp[key_added + "_distances"] and connectivities in .obsp[key_added + "_connectivities"].

  • n_iterations (int (default: 20)) – Number of iterations for the diffusion process

  • sigma (float (default: 0.5)) – Variance for the local model when calculating affinity matrices

  • eps (Small number to avoid numerical errors.) –

  • copy (Return a copy instead of writing to mdata.) –
