IntroductionΒΆ

The goal of sciReptor is to be a comprehensive solution for the processing, use and storage of single-cell AIRR-seq (scAIRR-seq) data and its integration with flow cytometry (FC) and receptor affinity (RA) data.

sciReptor was originally developed [Imkeller_2016] to process and analyse data from Matrix PCR [Busse_2014] experiments. Note that sciReptor focuses exclusively on single-cell data, if you need to process bulk AIRR-seq data, you will find recommendations on the AIRR-C Software WG website.

sciReptor aims to comply to the AIRR Community standards for metadata [Rubelt_2017], exchange formats [VanderHeiden_2018] and programatic data access [Christley_2020].

It consists out of multiple components:

  • Database backend and schema

  • Data processing pipeline

  • API to access the database via HTTP

  • Tools for data import, export and analysis
