SCATE: Single-cell ATAC-seq Signal Extraction and Enhancement ==== ## Introductions Single-cell sequencing assay for transposase-accessible chromatin (scATAC-seq) is the state-of-the-art technology for analyzing genome-wide regulatory landscape in single cells. Due to data sparsity and discreteness, analyzing scATAC-seq data is challenging. Existing computational methods cannot accurately reconstruct activities of individual cis-regulatory elements (CREs) in individual cells. We present a new statistical framework, SCATE, that adaptively integrates information from co-activated CREs, similar cells, and publicly available regulome data to substantially increase the accuracy for estimating individual CRE activities in single cell and rare cell subpopulations. ## SCATE Installation SCATE software can be installed via Github. Users should have R installed on their computer before installing SCATE. R version needs to be at least 3.5.x or higher. R can be downloaded here: For Windows users, Rtools is also required to be installed. Rtools can be downloaded here: ( For R version 3.5.x, Rtools35.exe is recommended. Use default settings to perform the installation. For mac users, if there is any problem with installation problem, please try download and install clang-8.0.0.pkg from the following URL: To install the latest version of SCATE package via Github, run following commands in R: ```{r } if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install(c("GenomicAlignments","preprocessCore")) if (!require("devtools")) install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("zji90/SCATE") ``` <!--- In rare case where devtools cannot be installed, SCATE software package can also be downloaded from this link: After downloading the package, open R, type in the following commands: ```{r } if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install("GenomicAlignments") ``` After the installation process, go to 'Packages & Data' menu, go to 'Package Installer', choose 'Local Source Package' from the pull-down menu the top, click 'Install' button on the bottom, choose the path to the software package 'SCATE_1.0.tar.gz' just downloaded, and click 'open'. The installation process will be completed soon. ---> If there is any problem with the installation process, please make sure you have R version at least 3.5.x and you have installed Rtools (Windows users) or clang (mac users). If the problem still occurs, please contact the author (see below) ## User Manual Check the following page for PDF version of the user manual: Check below link for the R code of the user manual. ## Citation Zhicheng Ji, Weiqiang Zhou, Wenpin Hou, Hongkai Ji, [*Single-cell ATAC-seq Signal Extraction and Enhancement with SCATE*](, Genome Biol 21, 161 (2020). ## Contact Author: Zhicheng Ji, Weiqiang Zhou, Wenpin Hou, Hongkai Ji Report bugs and provide suggestions by sending email to: Maintainer: Zhicheng Ji (, Wenpin Hou ( Or open a new issue on this Github page
