Error in "getZScores()" while running FourCSeq package

I was able to run FourCSeq successfully till I hit the following error:

> getZScores(fcAce)
[1] "viewpoint_1"
Error in object[seqnames(object) == unique(colData(object)$chr), ] :
  error in evaluating the argument 'i' in selecting a method for function '[': Error in .Call2("Rle_constructor", values, lengths, check, 0L, PACKAGE = "S4Vectors") :
  Rle of type 'list' is not supported

Here's what I ran before getZScores():

>exptDataAce=SimpleList(projectPath=getwd(), fragmentDir='bams/', referenceGenomeFile='/home/user/ref/mm9/bt2/chr_fa/chr7.fa', reSequence1='GATC', reSequence2='GTAC', primerFile='Primers.fa', bamFilePath='bams/')
>colDataAce=DataFrame(viewpoint="viewpoint_1", condition=factor(c("WT","WT","KO","KO")),levels = c("WT1","WT2","KO1","KO2"), replicate = c(1,2,1,2), bamFile = c('wt1.bam','wt2.bam','ko1.bam','ko2.bam'), sequencingPrimer="first")
>colData(fcAce)$chr = vpFrag[2]
>colData(fcAce)$start = vpFrag[3]
>colData(fcAce)$end = vpFrag[4]
>fcAce=countFragmentOverlaps(fcAce, trim=4)

The error is probably coming from :

object <- object[seqnames(object) == unique(colData(object)$chr),]
of FourCSeq/R/functions.R (line 418).

Running this :
seqnames(fcAce) == unique(colData(fcAce)$chr)
produces the error : Error in .Call2("Rle_constructor", values, lengths, check, 0L, PACKAGE = "S4Vectors") :
  Rle of type 'list' is not supported


> seqnames(fcAce)
factor-Rle of length 160846 with 1 run
  Lengths: 160846
  Values :   chr7
Levels(1): chr7

> unique(colData(fcAce)$chr)
[1] chr7
Levels: chr7

are the input objects. It appears that all of our elements in seqnames(fcAce) are ALREADY limited to chr7 because of how we aligned.

Upon searching I also found similar errors thrown by some other packages. Is there another method called by getZScores() which is incompatible with RleList object? Any suggestions/fixes will be much appreciated.

Hello Maddie, thanks a lot for your detailed example. As you pointed out |unique(colData(fcAce)$chr |seems to return a list now. I will have a look into this on the weekend. In the meanwhile you could try to wrap this call in an unlist() statement by copying the code from the function and creating your customized function. Some function used inside getZScore might not be available in the NAMESPACE (-> function not found error). In these cases you can call the function specifically by FourCSeq:::FUNCTIONNAME.

Hi Felix,

Thanks for your response. I am posting this as an answer because I think we figured out the error we were making. Using the following,

>colData(fcAce)$chr = vpFrag[2]
>colData(fcAce)$start = vpFrag[3]
>colData(fcAce)$end = vpFrag[4]

was adding chr, start and end as "empty lists" to colData(fcAce) instead of factor, integer and integer respectively. We were not able to use fcAce <- addViewpointFrags(fcAce)as suggested because it was giving an error on our Ubuntu (which we still have to figure out why, but that's a separate issue). But anyways for now, when we run

colData(fcAce)$chr = as.vector(as.character(vpFrag[2][1,1]))
colData(fcAce)$start = as.integer(vpFrag[3])

colData(fcAce)$end = as.integer(vpFrag[4])

instead of previous versions, everything works including getZScores and the subsequent methods. Thanks again for your reply and please let me know if you have any further suggestions.

Hello Maddie, I am glad it is working now. In the vignette I describe in detail how the colData can be set up manually. Maybe you can have a look there which might help you as well. Best regards, Felix
