The field of single-cell genomics has proven to be invaluable in investigating complex cell populations. Although data at the single-cell resolution has been revolutionary to genomic research, measuring the transcriptome alone does not provide any information on genotype to phenotype associations. However, quantitatively measuring both the transcriptome inside a cell and the protein markers expressed on its surface, a wet-lab technique called CITE-seq, may bridge this gap. To make sense of this high-dimension multimodal data, researchers must be confident in the quality of the data. Currently, there are no free, single-source bioinformatic tools available dedicated to the quality control of CITE-seq data. The citeseQC R package aims to be the first tool developed with the singular goal of assessing quality of multimodal data. The package is built in a low-code environment making it accessible to users with little to no programming aptitude. The package takes a file directory pathway as input and transforms the CITE-seq out files into interpretable figures to investigate the data quality in markdown report format. It utilizes the power of the Seurat v4.0 package inside its custom functions while retaining an approachable user interface. This paper discusses the current state of the citeseQC package, desired functionality for future version releases, barriers encountered, and successes achieved during its build.
