Droplet sequencing data analysis software tools
Droplet sequencing (Drop-seq) is an emerging technology to analyze gene expression from thousands of individual cells simultaneously. Drop-seq uses microfluidics and molecular barcoding to encapsulate individual cells in droplets and analyze their mRNA transcripts. This technology can be used to create molecular atlases of gene expression or characterization of novel cell types, which has applications in cancer or immunology. Software tools are used for quality control and data analysis and representation.
