Hi All,

I am struggling with importing kallisto output into tximport in order to afterwards use DESeq2 for differential expression at gene level. I just reinstalled R, Bioconductor, tximport, tximportData, as I saw in some of the previous posts this solved the issues. I simply can't figure out why the code below works for salmon but not for kallisto... For my own data, I only have kallisto output and I get the same result with file.exists, 'FALSE', the files are not visible. Please see the code and output below.

sessioninfo()

library(tximportData)

library(tximport)

dir <- system.file("extdata", package = "tximportData")

list.files(dir)

[1] "alevin" "cufflinks" "kallisto"
[4] "kallisto_boot" "refseq" "rsem"
[7] "sailfish" "salmon" "salmon_dm"
[10] "salmon_ec" "salmon_gibbs" "samples.txt"
[13] "samples_extended.txt" "tx2gene.csv" "tx2gene.ensembl.v87.csv" [16] "tx2gene.gencode.v27.csv" "tx2gene_alevin.tsv"

samples <- read.table(file.path(dir, "samples.txt"), header = TRUE)

files <- file.path(dir, "salmon", samples$run, "quant.sf.gz")

names(files) <- paste0("sample", 1:6)

all(file.exists(files))

[1] TRUE

files <- file.path(dir, "kallisto", samples$run, "abundance.tsv")

names(files) <- paste0("sample", 1:6)

all(file.exists(files))

[1] FALSE

list.files(dir, recursive = TRUE) shows all the kallisto files are present.

Any help is highly appreciated. Thank you.

Presumably you aren't putting your files in the extdata subdir of the tximportData package, which if you are, don't do that. Also, if you are using kallisto data, use the HDF5 file instead. Here's how to get the example data from tximportData.

> library(tximportData)
> thedir <- system.file("extdata", package = "tximportData")
> samples <- read.table(file.path(dir, "samples.txt"), header = TRUE)
> dirs <- paste0(thedir, "/kallisto/", samples$run)
> thefiles <- sapply(dirs, dir, pattern = "tsv", full.names = TRUE)
> length(thefiles)
[1] 6
> all(file.exists(thefiles))
[1] TRUE

## but use the h5 files
> thebetterfiles <- sapply(dirs, dir, pattern = "h5$", full.names = TRUE)
> all(file.exists(thebetterfiles))
[1] TRUE

Hi James,

Thanks a million!!

I very much appreciate your time and help. The issue was indeed the "don't do that" part... Your code fixed this, it works perfect and I just managed to adapt it to process my data.

Thank you,

Anna
