HUMAN Microarray CEL file to candidate pathways

Created: 2007-10-03 18:35:55      Last updated: 2009-11-26 17:34:24

This workflow takes in a CEL file and a normalisation method then returns a series of images/graphs which represent the same output obtained using the MADAT software package (MicroArray Data Analysis Tool) []. Also returned by this workflow are a list of the top differentialy expressed genes (size dependant on the number specified as input - geneNumber), which are then used to find the candidate pathways which may be influencing the observed changes in the microarray data. By identifying the candidate pathways, more detailed insights into the gene expression data can be obtained. NOTE - You will also need to install R and Rserv on your machine and install the libaries required by the R script into you R library directory (see for basic info: The example inputs for this workflow are as follows: Samples1 = one or more CEL files for cross-correlating with Samples2 CEL files (new line separated including the .CEL): Liver_Day1_Mouse.CEL Liver_Day2_Mouse.CEL Samples2 = one or more CEL files for cross-correlating with Samples1 CEL files (new line separated including the .CEL): Kideny_Day1_Mouse.CEL Kidney_Day2_Mouse.CEL geneNumber = the number of differentialy expressed gene to be returned above a given p-value, e.g. 20 arrayTypeAffy = the name of the Mouse AffyMetrix array used, e.g. mouse4302, hgu133a... path = the direct path to the CEL file location, e.g. C:/Microarray_Data/CEL_FILES/ - note the forward slashes NormalizationMethod = the type of normalisation to perfrom, e.g. rma, gcrma or mmgmos testMethod = e.g. limma, mmtest or pplr p-value = the p-value cut-off value for the array data, e.g. 0.05 foldChange = the fold change value for the microarray data, e.g. 1 (means greater than 1 or less than -1)

Workflow Pathways and Gene annotations for QTL region (1)

This workflow searches for genes which reside in a QTL (Quantitative Trait Loci) region in rice, Oryza sativa. The workflow requires an input of: a chromosome name or number; a QTL start base pair position; QTL end base pair position. Data is then extracted from BioMart to annotate each of the genes found in this region. The Entrez and UniGene identifiers are then sent to KEGG to obtain KEGG gene identifiers. The KEGG gene identifiers are then used to searcg for pathways in the KEGG pathway d...
