Default How to name samples in CummeRbund?


Problem: I cannot figure out which sample is which in Cummerbund or how to name them.

I used Galaxy to run Cufflinks, Cuffmerge, and Cuffdiff. I then downloaded files, renamed them to Cufflinks convention and am trying to visualize my data with CummeRbund in RStudio. I cannot figure out which sample is which and how to name them. For example, my density plot just shows samples as q1, q2.

Can someone please help me out?

It seems possible that the only way to do this is to rename sample names from Sample1/q1, Sample2/q2, etc. in cuffdiff output. I understand from Cufflinks manual that the first sample input into cuffdiff is Sample1/q1 and the second is Sample2/q2.

For example,

285: control.bam
287: test.bam
414: cuffmerge.gtf

425: Cuffdiff on data 285, data 287, and data 414: transcript FPKM tracking

Sample 1= q1 = 285 = control.bam
Sample 2 = q2 = 287 = test. bam

Can someone confirm this and touch on whether this is normal workflow? Is there a way to enable Galaxy to keep original sample names?

N.B. I'm not familiar with Galaxy. Cuffdiff will set q1/q2 in the order of the files given to it. That is, if you execute "cuffdiff OPTIONS transcripts.gtf control.bam test.bam" or similar then control is usually q1. In the future, use the "-L Label1,Label2,..." switch to make your life easier. I would assume there's a way to do that in Galaxy.

Default sed replacment

If you run the experiment with several samples

ie. cuffdiff -o cuffdiff/all REF.gff SAMPLE1.bam,SAMPLE1a.bam,SAMPLE1b.bam SAMPLE2.bam,SAMPLE2a.bam,SAMPLE2b.bam SAMPLE3.bam,SAMPLE3a.bam,SAMPLE3b.bam

you can rename them by entering cuffdiff output directory and running:

sed -i.bak -e 's/q1/SAMPLE1/g;s/q2/SAMPLE2/g;s/q3/SAMPLE3/g' *.diff *.info *_tracking
