What is scRNA-tools?
scRNA-tools is a catalogue of software packages designed for the analysis of single-cell RNA-sequencing data. We aim to record details of all tools for working with this data type.
Where is my tool?
If you have a tool that we are missing please fill in our submission form or submit an issue to our GitHub repository. We would love to add it!
That's not right, can you fix it?

I'm on Safari, why do things look funny?
The site has been developed using Chrome. While we try to accommodate other browsers this can be difficult and there are some known issues with Safari. If you run into problems try loading scRNA-tools.org in Chrome.
Who are we?
scRNA-tools.org was created by the Oshlack lab, a bioinformatics lab based in Melbourne, Australia.

The resource is now maintained by a team of volunteers around the world including at the Institute of Computational Biology in Munich, Germany.
How can I get involved?
We encourage and welcome contributions from the community via our submission form and GitHub repository.

We are always look for volunteers to join the scRNA-tools team. If you are interested in becoming involved in a more formal way please contact us.
