### Rphenograph

Posted:

**Wed Oct 31, 2018 3:22 pm**I've been testing Rphenograph, but I have a few doubts:

In what way this is "simple" implementation of the PhenoGraph algorithm? Are there main differences compared to the Matlab and Python implementations described in the original paper (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26095251)?

In fact, I noticed that compared to those implementations, that have a component of randomness and it is necessary to set a seed to reproduce the results, every time I run the algorithm in R, the results are absolutely identical. I even tried to explicitly set a different seed, but there is no change. Why is this the case?
