Scanvi best practices


I’ve been reviewing the latest changes in SCANVI. I noted the removal of pretraining scvi and that the option to do pretraining was moved to the from_scvi_model() method.

Could you elaborate on whether it is still best practice to pretrain with scvi, or whether just using scanvi on its own is better?

It is still best practice to pretrain a SCVI model and then instantiate SCANVI with the from_scvi_model class method. We moved this around for API reasons.
