cellxgene_census.experimental.get_embedding_metadata_by_name(embedding_name: str, organism: str, census_version: str, embedding_type: str | None = 'obs_embedding') dict[str, Any]

Return metadata for a specific embedding. If more embeddings match the query parameters, the most recent one will be returned.

  • embedding_name – The name of the embedding, e.g. “scvi”.

  • organism – The organism for which the embedding is associated.

  • census_version – The Census version tag, e.g., "2023-12-15".

  • embedding_type – Either “obs_embedding” or “var_embedding”. Defaults to “obs_embedding”.


A dictionary containing metadata describing the embedding.
