Environment settings and input data
Typically, the user wants to record here the sources and versions of the
reference genome sequence along with the corresponding annotations. In
the provided sample data set all data inputs are stored in a
subdirectory and all results will be written to a separate
systemPipeRNAseq.Rmd script and the
targets file are expected to be located in the parent
directory. The R session is expected to run from this parent directory.
To run this sample report, mini sample FASTQ and reference genome files can be downloaded from here. The chosen data set SRP010938 contains 18 paired-end (PE) read sets from Arabidposis thaliana (Howard et al., 2013). To minimize processing time during testing, each FASTQ file has been subsetted to 90,000-100,000 randomly sampled PE reads that map to the first 100,000 nucleotides of each chromosome of the A. thalina genome. The corresponding reference genome sequence (FASTA) and its GFF annotion files (provided in the same download) have been truncated accordingly. This way the entire test sample data set is less than 200MB in storage space. A PE read set has been chosen for this test data set for flexibility, because it can be used for testing both types of analysis routines requiring either SE (single end) reads or PE reads.
The following loads one of the available NGS workflow templates (here RNA-Seq) into the user’s current working directory. At the moment, the package includes workflow templates for RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, VAR-Seq and Ribo-Seq. Templates for additional NGS applications will be provided in the future.
library(systemPipeRdata) genWorkenvir(workflow="rnaseq") setwd("rnaseq")
Alternatively, this can be done from the command-line as follows:
Rscript -e "systemPipeRdata::genWorkenvir(workflow='rnaseq')"
Now open the R markdown script
systemPipeRNAseq.Rmdin your R IDE (e.g.
vim-r or RStudio) and run the workflow as outlined below. If you work under
Vim-R-Tmux, the following command sequence will connect the user in an
interactive session with a node on the cluster. The code of the
script can then be sent from Vim on the login (head) node to an open R session running
on the corresponding computer node. This is important since Tmux sessions
should not be run on the computer nodes.
# push `F2` on your keyboard to open interactive R session q("no") # closes R session on head node srun --x11 --partition=intel --mem=2gb --cpus-per-task 1 --ntasks 1 --time 2:00:00 --pty bash -l R
Now check whether your R session is running on a computer node of the cluster and not on a head node.
system("hostname") # should return name of a compute node starting with i or c getwd() # checks current working directory of R session dir() # returns content of current working directory
