tasic2016data

Data from Tasic, et al., Nature Neuroscience (2016).

Overview

This package is intended as a convenient way to load the scRNA-seq dataset published in Tasic, et al. (2016) in R for analysis.

It contains data for all cells released on GEO for this article, deposited at accession GSE71585

There are only 3 data objects in this package, and no functions. They are:
tasic_2016_anno: A data.frame with annotations for each sample. See ?tasic_2016_anno for descriptions of each column.
tasic_2016_counts: A matrix of read counts from RSEM analysis for each gene used in Tasic, et al. (2016).
tasic_2016_fpkm: A matrix of FPKM values for each gene used in Tasic, et al. (2016).

Installation

The package can be installed from Github using the devtools package:

devtools::install_github("AllenInstitute/tasic2016data")

Once installed, the dataset will be placed in the user's R LazyLoad database, and can be easily retrieved:

library(tasic2016data)

annotations <- tasic_2016_anno
counts <- tasic_2016_counts

Getting clustered samples

Note that this dataset has all cells from GSE71585, including those that failed QC, those from retrograde virus injections, and those that fell into outlier clusters.

To obtain the set of cells that was used for clustering in Tasic, et al. (2016), you can filter annotations on the core_intermediate and cre_driver_1 columns

clustered_samples <- tasic_2016_anno$core_intermediate != "unclassified" & tasic_2016_anno$cre_driver_1 != "CAV2-Cre"
clustered_anno <- tasic_2016_anno[clustered_samples, ]
clustered_counts <- tasic_2016_counts[clustered_anno$sample_name, ]
