dropEst - Pipeline¶
Pipeline for estimating molecular count matrices for droplet-based single-cell RNA-seq measurements.
General processing steps¶
- dropTag: extraction of cell barcodes and UMIs from the library. Result: demultiplexed .fastq.gz files, which should be aligned to the reference.
- Alignment of the demultiplexed files to reference genome. Result: .bam files with the alignment.
- dropEst: building count matrix and estimation of some statistics, necessary for quality control. Result: .rds file with the count matrix and statistics. Optionally: count matrix in MatrixMarket format.
- dropReport - Generating report on library quality.
- dropEstR - UMI count corrections, cell quality classification
