I have been trying to understand the Seurat for analysing scRNA-seq data. It comes to my mind that the main data is organised in the Seurat object with rows as genes and columns as the cells, and the entries are the gene read count.
I am confused with the statement, "the connection between the detected genes in the cells and the read counts".
What is exactly the meaning of the detected genes in the cells biologically and its connection to the read counts? Can we say if the read count of gene A is 10 it means this gene is detected 10 times in a cell? How to interpret the detected genes biologically?
