Using the oneSENSE package

Rational of One-SENSE

One-SENSE measures cellular parameters assinged to manually predefined
catergories, and a one-dimensional map is constructed for each catergory
using t-SNE. Each dimension is informative and can be annotated through
the use of heatplots aligned in parallel to each axis, allowing for
simultaneous visualization of two catergories across a two-dimensional plot.
The cellular occupancy of the resulting plots alllows for direct assessment
of the relationships between the categories.
