r-biocneighbors 1.6.0 Nearest Neighbor Detection for Bioconductor packages
This package implements exact and approximate methods for nearest neighbor detection, in a framework that allows them to be easily switched within Bioconductor packages or workflows. The exact algorithm is implemented using pre-clustering with the k-means algorithm. Functions are also provided to search for all neighbors within a given distance. Parallelization is achieved for all methods using the BiocParallel framework.
