Question: Can I run Cell Ranger on my Mac or Windows machine?
Answer: No, Cell Ranger only runs on Linux systems. Please see Cell Ranger System Requirements.
However, if you are based in the US or Canada, you can run analysis on 10x Genomics Cloud. You can sign up for a free account and perform Cell Ranger analysis on the cloud. This can be accessed via browsers like Chrome and Safari.
You can upload files using Mac/Windows too using our simple web uploader here. Please find more details to sign up here and more details on creating Cell Ranger analysis on Cloud here.
