Filtering out genes

I am interested in removing erythrocytes (enriched hemoglobin genes) from my dataset. Is there a way to do this with current pipeline and/or is it possible to filter out hemoglobin genes?


Once you’ve identified the erythrocytes, you can create a subset of the experiment from the Cell sets and Metadata panel in Data Exploration. This subset would include everything except the erythrocytes. The platform will then generate another project containing only the subset cells, allowing you to proceed with your analysis without the unwanted cells.

Unfortunately, it’s not currently possible to directly remove hemoglobin genes from the dataset within the platform. A workaround would be to filter out these genes from the count matrices before uploading them to the platform. This can be done using tools like R or Python.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
