scruff (Single Cell RNA-Seq UMI Filtering Facilitator) is a package for processing single cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq) FASTQ reads generated by CEL-Seq and CEL-Seq2 protocols. It demultiplexes scRNA-seq FASTQ files, aligns reads to reference genome using Rsubread, and generates UMI filtered count matrix.
This is a mirror to scruff Bioconductor 3.8 stable version.

Run time benchmarks for selected scRNA-seq preprocessing packages. FASTQ files from the example dataset (Van den Brink et al. 2017) were subsampled to have a total read number of 0.1, 0.5, 1.0, 5.0, and 10.0 million. Each of the subsampled datasets was processed by celseq2, scPipe, and scruff. All 3 packages were parallelized with 16 cores. The job was run on a cluster node with 2 eight-core 2.6 GHz Intel Xeon E5-2670 CPUs and 256 GB memory. For the subsampled dataset with 10 million reads, scruff took 34.9 minutes to finish while celseq2 and scPipe took 143.2 and 69.0 minutes.
The following selected QC plots are generated using data from (Van den Brink et al. 2017) and scruff package. Metrics and QC plots reported by scruff includes total number of reads, number of reads mapped to reference genome, number of reads mapped to genes, fraction of mapped reads to total reads, fraction of reads mapped to genes to reads mapped to genome, fraction of reads mapped to genes to total number of reads, total number of transcripts, number of mitochondrial transcripts, fraction of mitochondrial transcripts, number of transcribed genes, fraction of protein coding genes, fraction of protein coding transcripts, median and average number of reads per corrected and uncorrected UMI counts, and the number of detected genes divided by total number of reads sequenced per million.
These are boxplots with overlaid points. Each point represents a well (unique cell barcode) and is colored by the number of cells sorted in the well by FACS. Each boxplot denotes a different experiment (i.e. plate). Sample mouse c library 2 have similar number of total reads but much less fraction of aligned reads compared to other experiments, showing its poor quality.
scruff package provides functions to visualize gene isoforms and UMI tagged read alignments at specified genomic coordinates. 125 reads were mapped to the gene Fos in cell 30 of mouse b library 1 from the example CEL-Seq dataset (Van den Brink et al. 2017). Upper panel shows the visualization of read alignments. Reads are represented by arrows and are colored by their UMIs. The direction of the arrow represents the mapping strand of the read. Lower panel shows the visualization of gene isoforms. Gene isoforms are labeled by their transcript names. Grey rectangles represent exons.
scruff provides function to visualize read alignment quality of BAM files processed by Cell Ranger. BAM files for 6 PBMC datasets (3K, 6K, 4K, 8K, 1K, 10K) were downloaded from 10X Genomics website and processed by scruff to obtain (a) the number of reads aligned to reference genome, (b) the number of reads mapped to genes, and (c) the fraction of reads mapped to genes out of total number of aligned reads.
