Chromium Single Cell Immune Profiling

Understanding Output

The Cell Ranger software strives to maintain compatibility with common analysis tools by using standard output file formats whenever possible. For example, the barcoded BAM files can be viewed in standard genome browsers such as IGV to verify assembly quality and other features. The Chromium-specific data, including cellular and molecular barcodes, can be accessed via any third-party tools or scripts that can parse the additional elements utilized by Cell Ranger.

All pipelines produce all of their output in a single pipeline output directory, whose name depends on the pipeline:

Output files will appear in the outs/ subdirectory within this pipeline output directory. For example, a typical cellranger vdj run may look like:

$ cd /home/jdoe/runs
$ cellranger vdj --id=sample345 \
                 --reference=/opt/refdata-cellranger-vdj-GRCh38-alts-ensembl-2.0.0 \
                 --fastqs=/home/jdoe/runs/HAWT7ADXX/outs/fastq_path \
                 --sample=mysample \
