scDiffCom infers cell type to cell type communication signals from scRNA-seq Seurat objects, and more particularly investigates how these interactions change between two biological conditions. The package relies on a internal collection of ligand-receptor interactions (available for human and mouse) retrieved from seven public and curated databases.
