Using airway2 (https://github.com/mikelove/airway2/tree/master/inst) salmon transcript level count files, this is supposed to remove the versioning of Ensemble gene IDs:


srrs = list.files(path = "~/Downloads/airway2-master/inst/extdata/quants/", full.names = TRUE)

txm_raw = tximeta(file.path(srrs, "quant.sf.gz"), type = "salmon") 
txm_con = summarizeToGene(txm_raw, ignoreTxVersion = TRUE)

loading existing TxDb created: 2019-07-02 20:01:47
obtaining transcript-to-gene mapping from TxDb
Error in .local(object, ...) : 

  None of the transcripts in the quantification files are present
  in the first column of tx2gene. Check to see that you are using
  the same annotation for both.

Example IDs (file): [ENST00000456328, ENST00000450305, ENST00000488147, ...]

Example IDs (tx2gene): [ENST00000456328.2, ENST00000450305.2, ENST00000473358.1, ...]

  This can sometimes (not always) be fixed using 'ignoreTxVersion' or 'ignoreAfterBar'.

Similarly, the operation fails using mapIds of AnnotationDbi (for which it might be nice to have as well an option like ignoreTxVersion ).

Current work-around:

names(GRanges_object) <- sapply(names(GRanges_object), function(x) unlist(strsplit(x, "\\."))[[1]])

I think the files do have the version ending, and so it works just with defaults (here with airway2 files):

Thank you, Michael. I didn't know about the tximeta::addIds() function.

A minor point with regards to this solution:

Given, I've run a DESeq2 analysis on gse (or txm) and I would like to add the ENTREZID afterwards, the addIds(dds_results, "ENTREZID") function will not work with an object of DESeqResults class (even if metadata(txm)$txomeInfo -> metadata(dds_results)$txomeInfo. I can imagine this holds true for a variety of objects derived from SummarizedExperiments that end up as data.frame or similar.

In this case, I still would have to do something like

mapIds(org.Hs.eg.db, keys = row.names(dds_results), keytype = "ENSEMBL",
   column = "SYMBOL")

and given that row.names(dds_results) are versioned, this would throw an error.

Of course, one can work around as specified in the original question by stripping off the versioning ... however, it would be nice to harmonize tximeta::addIds and AnnotationDbi::mapIds for such cases. Maybe a good feature request for AnnotationDbi? (Or a request to allow mappings via addIds() for any vector given a valid metadata(obj)$txomeInfo?)

DESeqResults is a DataFrame, coming from the S4Vectors package.

So far, I've just built out tximeta functions for SummarizedExperiments, and so one could add the IDs upstream of DESeq2 or I think on a DESeqDataSet.

I can look into changing the code to support GRanges and/or DataFrames.
