Question: Create a sample file /tab delimited file in QuasR

Hi Chris, The problem is that "sampleFile" should not contain any sequences; it is just the file name of a plain text file, which in turn lists all sequence files to be processed by QuasR. QuasR comes with a few example files. Since your dataset is single read (see http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sra?term=SRX220452), the following would be a good starting point: system.file("extdata","samples_chip_single.txt",package="QuasR") The easiest is to copy this file and then edit it in a plain text editor, such as Notepad or Textedit, replacing the file paths and sample names with the ones from your analysis. Alternatively, the following code should create such a file in your current working directory with the name "mysamples.txt" (you'll need to replace "path/to/seqs" with the correct path, and you can use "/" as the directory separator): tab <- data.frame(FileName=c("C:/path/to/seqs/SRR653521.fastq"), SampleName=c("Sample1")) write.table(tab, "mysamples.txt", quote=FALSE, row.names=FALSE, col.names=TRUE, sep="\t") One more comment to the Ecoli BSgenome object that you intend to use as a reference: This BSgenome contains several genomes from different E.coli strains: library("BSgenome.Ecoli.NCBI.20080805") help(package="BSgenome.Ecoli.NCBI.20080805") seqlengths(Ecoli) NC_008253 NC_008563 NC_010468 NC_004431 NC_009801 NC_009800 NC_002655 4938920 5082025 4746218 5231428 4979619 4643538 5528445 NC_002695 NC_010498 NC_007946 NC_010473 NC_000913 AC_000091 5498450 5068389 5065741 4686137 4639675 4646332 QuasR will treat these genomes as if they would be seperate chromosomes of a single genome, which may not be what you want. For example, reads mapping to regions that are identical in the separate genomes will be randomly assigned. It is probably preferrable to select one of the genomes as a reference, save it to a fasta file, and use that instead for your "genomeName": singleGenome <- as(Ecoli[["NC_008253"]], "DNAStringSet") names(singleGenome) <- "NC_008253" writeXStringSet(singleGenome, "Ecoli_genome_NC_008253.fa") genomeName <- "Ecoli_genome_NC_008253.fa" I hope this helps, Michael On 31.10.2013 17:30, chris [guest] wrote: > > I am somewhat new to R and am trying to load a file into QuasR. I downloaded the file e coli chip-seq data set SRR653521.sra from NCBIs SRA database (SRA accession number: SRX220452, GEO accession number: GSM1072327). I used ncbi sratoolkit to convert this to SRR653521.fastq. I am trying to load this into R using QuasR to do alignment, GO/pathway analysis, etc, but first need to get the fastq data into R for use with QuasR. I am using Windows 7, with current R, Bioconductor, and required packages. > > I followed the vignette found with browseVignettes(), and opened "An Introduction to QuasR".

Also, I am not sure if my fastq file is for single end read, or paired end read. The examples listed in the vignette are only for files found in the "extdata" folder, and I don't know how to proceed. As soon as I get a sample file, I can probably figure out the rest. I hope this question isn't too basic, and thanks in advance for any help! > > -- output of sessionInfo(): > >> sessionInfo() > R version 3.0.2 (2013-09-25) > Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit) > > locale: > [1] LC_COLLATE=English_United States.1252 LC_CTYPE=English_United States.1252 LC_MONETARY=English_United States.1252 LC_NUMERIC=C > [5] LC_TIME=English_United States.1252 > > attached base packages: > [1] grid parallel stats graphics grDevices utils datasets methods base > > other attached packages: > [1] BSgenome.Ecoli.NCBI.20080805_1.3.17 BiocInstaller_1.12.0 Gviz_1.6.0 GenomicFeatures_1.14.0 > [5] AnnotationDbi_1.24.0 Biobase_2.22.0 rtracklayer_1.22.0 BSgenome_1.30.0 > [9] ShortRead_1.20.0 Rsamtools_1.14.1 lattice_0.20-24 Biostrings_2.30.0 > [13] QuasR_1.2.0 Rbowtie_1.2.0 GenomicRanges_1.14.3 XVector_0.2.0 > [17] IRanges_1.20.3 BiocGenerics_0.8.0 > > loaded via a namespace (and not attached): > [1] biomaRt_2.18.0 biovizBase_1.10.0 bitops_1.0-6 cluster_1.14.4 colorspace_1.2-4 DBI_0.2-7 dichromat_2.0-0 Hmisc_3.12-2 > [9] hwriter_1.3 labeling_0.2 latticeExtra_0.6-26 munsell_0.4.2 plyr_1.8 RColorBrewer_1.0-5 RCurl_1.95-4.1 rpart_4.1-3 > [17] RSQLite_0.11.4 scales_0.2.3 stats4_3.0.2 stringr_0.6.2 tools_3.0.2 XML_3.98-1.1 zlibbioc_1.8.0 > > -- > Sent via the guest posting facility at bioconductor.org. >
