Examples

# Get an Assay key
Key(pbmc_small[["RNA"]])
#> [1] "rna_"

# Set the key for an Assay
Key(pbmc_small[["RNA"]]) <- "newkey_"
Key(pbmc_small[["RNA"]])
#> [1] "newkey_"

# Get a DimReduc key
Key(object = pbmc_small[["pca"]])
#> [1] "PC_"

# Set the key for DimReduc
Key(object = pbmc_small[["pca"]]) <- "newkey2_"
Key(object = pbmc_small[["pca"]])
#> [1] "newkey2_"

# Show all keys associated with a Seurat object
Key(object = pbmc_small)
#>        RNA        pca       tsne 
#>  "newkey_" "newkey2_"    "tSNE_"
