This exercise can be completed on your own laptops, but in order to do that, you need to have the following tools/software installed,

  • Install R version 3.3 or later (R).
  • Install Rstudio.
  • Once you have R and Rstudio, go ahead and start Rstudio, then install Bioconductor since additional packages might be required (plus it is always a good idea to have bioconductor available if you are doing any sort of omics analysis using R).
  • Now within Rstudio, install Seurat by entering the commands below,


Now you should be set! Any missing libraries that you encounter along this tutorial can be installed from their relative bioconductor or CRAN pages (please search for these packages accordingly and follow their installation instructions).
