At  single cell level a lot of studies is being carried out for gene expression analysis . There are many biases and artifacts  present in the data and it takes a huge amount  of time and effort to overcome these. Recently, Mc Carthy D.J. et al. have developed a package in R language which carries out normalization, quality control and preprocessing.

                  The package takes the raw  gene expression data and converts it into graphical plots. It also provides a flexible  data structure which can be used with existing graphical tools.

                  The open source code is can be obtained from the following website
