# Welcome

This site contains the introductory chapters for the “Orchestrating Single-Cell Analysis with Bioconductor” book. This describes how to install R and Bioconductor packages, links out to some resources to learn R, describes how to load datasets into an R session, provides an overview of the SingleCellExperiment class, and performs a “quick start” demonstration for basic single-cell RNA-seq analyses. It is intended for readers with little-to-no computational background who are just getting started with analyses in R.
