The fast development of single cell RNA sequencing (scRNAseq) presents new challenges in data analysis and opportunities for protocol development. To address challenges in data preprocessing, I developed scPipe, an R/Bioconductor package that integrates barcode demultiplexing, read alignment, UMI-aware gene-level quantification and quality control of raw sequencing data generated by multiple protocols. Results from scPipe can be used as input for downstream analyses and can be easily incorporated into R-based pipelines with other tools. In order to compare different computational methods for scRNAseq data, I generated a realistic benchmark experiment that included single cells and admixtures..
