How to ScanPy cluster already CPM normalized/log transformed data?

I have a publicly available dataset from Smart Seq2 scRNA seq run that i would like to cluster in ScanPy. The file contains already CPM normalized and log(CPM+1) transformed data, not raw counts.
How could i tell ScanPy that the data is already normalize and log transformed?! Skipping over sc.pp.normalize_total(adata, target_sum=1e4) and sc.pp.log1p(adata) steps produces errors down the line, while normalizing/log-transforming data twice seems like a wrong way to go about it.
Any insight would be amazing, thank you!

can you provide a full script? It should be the case that you can jump straight to the PCA step

Absolutely, thank you for your response :smiley:

import numpy as np
import pandas as pd
import scanpy as sc

sc.settings.verbosity = 3             # verbosity: errors (0), warnings (1), info (2), hints (3)
sc.settings.set_figure_params(dpi=120, facecolor='white')

!mkdir write_RenFiltered
results_file = 'write_RenFiltered/Ren2020_5HT_filtered.h5ad'

adata = sc.read_text('GSE135132_Adult_DR_GEO_counts_cpm.txt', delimiter=None).transpose()



sc.pp.normalize_total(adata, target_sum=1e4)  #data already CPM normalized, error without this step

sc.pp.log1p(adata)   #data already log transformed, error without this step 

sc.pp.highly_variable_genes(adata, min_mean=0.0125, max_mean=3, min_disp=0.35)  #ValueError: cannot specify integer `bins` when input data contains infinity when normalization/log steps are omitted

adata.raw = adata

adata = adata[:, adata.var.highly_variable]

sc.pp.regress_out(adata, ['total_counts'])

sc.pp.scale(adata, max_value=10), svd_solver='arpack'), log=True)

sc.pp.neighbors(adata, n_neighbors=10, n_pcs=50), resolution=0.9), color='leiden')

Is it clear that adata.X contains what you want? What happens if you print(adata)? The delimiter could be important here

I know that delimiter in the txt file is a space [’ '].

Can you also display output to np.all(np.isfinite(adata.X)) and change your data with data.X[~np.isfinite(adata.X)]=0 and check the pipeline with this modified data?
