Pipeline for single cell multi-omic data pre-processing

Bioconductor version: 3.16

A preprocessing pipeline for single cell RNA-seq/ATAC-seq data that starts from the fastq files and produces a feature count matrix with associated quality control information. It can process fastq data generated by CEL-seq, MARS-seq, Drop-seq, Chromium 10x and SMART-seq protocols.
