This often produces technical biases that can lead to incorrect results in the downstream analysis. BatchQC is a software tool that streamlines batch preprocessing and evaluation by providing interactive diagnostics, visualizations, and statistical analyses to explore the extent to which batch variation impacts the data. BatchQC diagnostics help determine whether batch adjustment needs to be done, and how correction should be applied before proceeding with a downstream analysis. Moreover, BatchQC interactively applies multiple common batch effect approaches to the data, and the user can quickly see the benefits of each method. BatchQC is developed as a Shiny App. The output is organized into multiple tabs, and each tab features an important part of the batch effect analysis and visualization of the data. The BatchQC interface has the following analysis groups: Upload Data, Experimental Design, Variation Analysis, Heatmaps, Dendrograms, PCA Analysis, Differential Expression Analysis, and Data Download. The package includes: 1. Upload Data; apply desired Normalization and Batch Effect Correction (incl.  ComBat and ComBat-Seq) 2. Experimental Design to view summary of data 3. Variation Analysis 4. Heatmap plot of gene expressions 5. Median Correlation Plot 6. Circular Dendrogram clustered and colored by batch, condition, and covariates 7. Principal Component Analysis and plots 8. Differential Expression Plots and Analysis using DESeq2 9. Data Download to export any corrections or normalizations as an SE object `BatchQC()` is the function that launches the Shiny App in interactive mode. ## Installation ### Bioconductor Version When pushed to Bioconductor (aka not yet possible, this will download the old version of BatchQC): To begin, install [Bioconductor]( and then install BatchQC: ``` r if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly=TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install("BatchQC") ``` ### Github Version To install the most up-to-date version of BatchQC, please install directly from github. You will need the devtools package. You can install both of these with the following commands: ``` r if (!require("devtools", quietly = TRUE)) { install.packages("devtools") } library(devtools) install_github("wejlab/BatchQC") ``` ### Load BatchQC and Launch Shiny App You should now be able to load BatchQC and launch the shiny app.
