Gene dependency score of RNAi screening data (DEMETER2)


The value of D2_combined_gene_dep_scores.csv seems to be a gene effect, not a gene dependency. Is there no gene dependency data with a value of 0 to 1 like the dependency score of CRISPR_gene_dependency.csv?


You can find more DepMap-like versions of the combined RNAi dataset (following the conventions of the CRISPR datasets for gene_dependency and gene_effect) at DEMETER 2 Combined RNAi.

@Joshua_Dempster Thanks for your answer. I have a question about the gene dependency of the link you provided. Like the dependency score of CRISPR, can this dependency score be considered dependent if it is 0.5 or higher?

As with the CRISPR data, 0.5 means an estimated 50% probability that the gene score represents a true dependency.
