Interactive single cell RNA-Seq analysis with Single Cell Toolkit (SCTK)


Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine present the Single Cell Toolkit (SCTK), an R package and interactive single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-Seq) analysis package that provides the first complete workflow for scRNA-Seq data analysis and visualization using a set of R functions and an interactive web interface. Users can perform analysis with modules for filtering raw results, clustering, batch correction, differential expression, pathway enrichment, and scRNA-Seq study design. The toolkit supports command line or pipeline data processing, and results can be loaded into the GUI for additional exploration and downstream analysis. The researchers demonstrate the effectiveness of the SCTK on multiple scRNA-seq examples, including data from mucosal-associated invariant T cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, and breast cancer tumor cells. While other scRNA-Seq analysis tools exist, the SCTK is the first fully interactive analysis toolkit for scRNA-Seq data available within the R language.
