Single-cell chromatin accessibility sequencing has become a powerful technology for understanding epigenetic heterogeneity of complex tissues. However, there is a lack of open-source software for comprehensive processing, analysis, and visualization of such data generated using all existing experimental protocols. Here, we present scATAC-pro for quality assessment, analysis, and visualization of single-cell chromatin accessibility sequencing data. scATAC-pro computes a range of quality control metrics for several key steps of experimental protocols, with a flexible choice of methods. It generates summary reports for both quality assessment and downstream analysis. scATAC-pro is available at https://github.com/tanlabcode/scATAC-pro.
