The spaceranger pipeline outputs an HDF5 file containing per-molecule information for all molecules that contain a valid barcode and valid UMI and were assigned with high confidence to a gene. This HDF5 file contains data corresponding to the observed molecules, as well as data about the libraries, feature set(s), and barcode lists used for the analysis.
The following HDF5 datasets in the molecule info file correspond to columns of a table. Each row of that table corresponds to a unique (UMI, spot-barcode, feature) tuple indicating the feature best supported by the reads (i.e., including PCR duplicates) assigned to that UMI and spot-barcode. (If two or more features are tied for the number of supporting reads, as may happen for genes with very low mappability, then one row is output for each of the tied features.)
|uint64||A zero-based index into the |
|uint32||Number of reads associated with this putative molecule that were confidently mapped to the assigned feature.|
|uint32||A zero-based index into the feature list (see next section), indicating the feature to which this putative molecule was assigned.|
|uint16||Integer label that is currently one (1) for all Space Ranger output.|
|uint16||A zero-based index into the |
|uint32||2-bit encoded (see note below) processed (i.e. corrected) UMI sequence.|
In addition, the molecule info file has datasets corresponding to information about the libraries, barcode list(s), and feature set(s) that were used in the analysis.
At the top level of the HDF5 file hierarchy, the
library_info datasets provide information about the experiments contained in this analysis:
|string||A list of all spot-barcodes associated with this experiment (including those that were not observed). The |
|string||A JSON-formatted array of objects, where each object contains metadata for a single library. Each library will at a minimum contain the metadata |
The HDF5 group
barcode_info gives information regarding the barcodes that were detected as under the tissue during the analysis. This HDF5 group contains two columns
|string||A list of all genome references used for gene expression libraries in this analysis.|
|uint8||A matrix with three columns that contains one row per passing spot-barcode. Each row is a tuple |

Please note that the spot-barcode sequences do not have this encoding; they are stored as plain strings in the
library_info HDF5 group.
metrics group is intended for internal use by the Space Ranger pipeline; users should view metrics using the Space Ranger metrics outputs.
The attributes of
metrics group contain pipeline metrics stored as serialized Python objects (using
