I am working on ScRNAseq and am using Saurat package. On the page http://satijalab.org/seurat/pbmc3k_tutorial.html there is mention of mitochondrial genes- mito.genes <- grep(pattern = "^MT-", x = rownames(x = pbmc@data), value = TRUE)

Is there a list of mitochondrial marker genes? Any pointer will be helpful.

Thanks

Based on the code, they are just searching for genes that start with "MT-".

Alternatively, you can search for search for genes on "chrM" in your GTF.
