We build a software package scHiCNorm that uses zero-inflated and hurdle models to remove biases from single-cell Hi-C data. Our evaluations prove that our models can effectively eliminate systematic biases for single-cell Hi-C data, which better reveal cell-to-cell variances in terms of chromosomal structures. Availability and implementation scHiCNorm is available at Perl scripts are provided that can generate bias features. Pre-built bias features for human (hg19 and hg38) and mouse (mm9 and mm10) are available to download. R scripts can be downloaded to remove biases.
