What is Cell Ranger DNA?

Cell Ranger DNA is a set of analysis pipelines that process Chromium single cell DNA sequencing output to align reads, identify copy number variation (CNV), and compare heterogeneity among cells.


Cell Ranger DNA includes two main pipelines:

Output is delivered in standard HTML, CSV, BED, BAM and HDF5 formats.


Throughout the documentation, you will see references to samples, libraries, sequencing runs, Martian and pipestance. We define these as follows:

Note that a single library may be sequenced across multiple flowcells, and then combined as if all the reads came from one sequencing run. Additionally, a single flowcell may contain multiple libraries, separated using different lanes and / or sample indices.

Cell Ranger DNA allows for the analysis of a single 10x-barcoded sequencing library prepared from a sample that is sequenced across one or more flowcells. The analysis of multiple libraries generated from the same sample, for example using multiple channels on a chip, is not currently supported.
