Scirpy: single-cell immune receptor analysis in Python#
Scirpy is a package to analyse T cell receptor (TCR) or B cell receptor (BCR) repertoires from single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) data in Python. It seamlessly integrates with scanpy and mudata and provides various modules for data import, analysis and visualization.
Scirpy is part of the scverse project (website, governance) and is fiscally sponsored by NumFOCUS. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help the project pay for developer time, professional services, travel, workshops, and a variety of other needs.
Please refer to the documentation. In particular, the
You need to have Python 3.9 or newer installed on your system. If you don’t have Python installed, we recommend installing Mambaforge.
There are several alternative options to install scirpy:
Install the latest release of
pip install scirpy
Get it from Bioconda:
First setup conda channels as described here. Then install scirpy:
conda install scirpy
