Getting started

This tutorial provides a walkthrough for how to work with dee2 expression data, starting with data searches, obtaining the data from dee2.io and then performing a differential analysis with DESeq or edgeR.

To use search and obtain dee2 data in R, you will need to source the 'getDEE2' script as follows:

> source("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/markziemann/dee2/master/getDEE2.R")

Searching for datasets of interest starting with accession numbers

The first step is to download the list of accession numbers of available datasets with the 'getDee2Metadata' function, specifying a species name. The options for species currently are:

  • athaliana
  • celegans
  • dmelanogaster
  • drerio
  • ecoli
  • hsapiens
  • mmusculus
  • rnorvegicus
  • scerevisiae

If the species name is incorrect, an error will be thrown.

If we have a GEO series accession number in mind already (eg: GSE33569) then we can see if the datasets are present.

Dee2 data is centred around SRA run accessions numbers, these SRR_accessions can be obtained like this:

> mdat1<-mdat[which(mdat$GSE_accession %in% "GSE33569"),]
> SRRlist<-as.vector(mdat1$SRR_accession)
> SRRlist
[1] "SRR363796" "SRR363797" "SRR363798" "SRR363799"

Fetching dee2 data using SRA run accession numbers

The general syntax for obtaining dee2 data is this:

> getDEE2(species,SRRlist,outfile="NULL")

First, the function downloads a copy of the metadata, then runs a query to make sure that the requested datasets are present. It then downloads the requested expression data as a zip archive that contains the following:

  1. a gene-wise count expression matrix,
  2. a transcript-wise count expression matrix,
  3. a matrix of quality metrics, and
  4. a folder of run logs detailing the processing of the data including base quality scores, alignment rates, etc.

If 'outfile' is defined, then files will be downloaded to the current working directory. If it is not defined, then the files are downloaded to the temporary directory of R and deleted immediately after use.

The SRR numbers need to exactly match those in SRA.

Here is an example of using the SRRlist as defined above.

You can directly specify the SRR accessions in the command line, but be sure to type them correctly. In case SRR accessions are not present in the database, there will be a warning message.

Warning, datasets not found: 'SRR3581689,SRR3581692'

In this case the accessions SRR3581689 and SRR3581692 are A. thaliana accessions and therefore not present in the C. elegans accession list. The list of absent accessions is provided in case you need these for your records.

Keyword searching metadata

Here I'll demonstrate two ways to query SRAdbv2 (Docs).

You will need to install, then load the library.

#installation
install.packages('BiocManager')
BiocManager::install('seandavi/SRAdbV2')
#load library
library(SRAdbV2)

The first method is to download all the transcriptome metadata for a particular species (taxid:6239 is for C. elegans).

#new query
> oidx = Omicidx$new()
> query=paste(
>  paste0('sample_taxon_id:', 6239),
>  'AND experiment_library_source:transcriptomic')
> z = oidx$search(q=query,entity='full',size=100L)
> s = z$scroll()
> res = s$collate(limit = 10000L)

Next, you will want to filter these results for those that have dee2 datasets available. Couple of ways to do this but the best might be to attach a logical value for whether there is data available for the runs.

#get the C. elegans metadata if not already obtained
> mdat<-getDee2Metadata("celegans")
#next attach logical value to SRAdb metadata
> res$dee2data<-res$run_accession %in% mdat$SRR_accession
#Check that it has been added
> head(cbind(res$run_accession,res$dee2data))
     [,1]         [,2]   
[1,] "SRR1557807" "TRUE" 
[2,] "SRR2537196" "TRUE" 
[3,] "SRR1658975" "TRUE" 
[4,] "SRR087429"  "TRUE" 
[5,] "SRR7443620" "TRUE" 
[6,] "SRR6002322" "FALSE"

You can also see how complete the dee2 coverage is:

> length(which(res$dee2data==T))
[1] 8721
> length(which(res$dee2data==F))
[1] 1246

You can then browse and make targeted searches of this metadata locally with grepl. In this case I will search for studies with "PAR-CLIP" in the abstract.

> res[grep("PAR-CLIP",res$study_abstract),]

#   experiment_library_layout_length <dbl>,
#   experiment_library_layout_sdev <chr>, dee2data <lgl>

Now check that the runs have corresponding dee2 datasets:

> res2<-res[grep("PAR-CLIP",res$study_abstract),]
> cbind(res2$run_accession,res2$dee2data)
      [,1]         [,2]  
 [1,] "SRR363980"  "TRUE"
 [2,] "SRR1176664" "TRUE"
 [3,] "SRR1207392" "TRUE"
 [4,] "SRR363797"  "TRUE"
 [5,] "SRR363796"  "TRUE"
 [6,] "SRR1207390" "TRUE"
 [7,] "SRR1207391" "TRUE"
 [8,] "SRR1207395" "TRUE"
 [9,] "SRR1176669" "TRUE"
[10,] "SRR363981"  "TRUE"
[11,] "SRR363798"  "TRUE"
[12,] "SRR1176645" "TRUE"
[13,] "SRR1207389" "TRUE"
[14,] "SRR1207394" "TRUE"
[15,] "SRR1176665" "TRUE"
[16,] "SRR1176644" "TRUE"
[17,] "SRR1176646" "TRUE"
[18,] "SRR1176670" "TRUE"
[19,] "SRR1176666" "TRUE"
[20,] "SRR363799"  "TRUE"
[21,] "SRR1207393" "TRUE"

The drawback of this approach is that it could be very slow for species like human and mouse with hundreds of thousands of RNA-seq datasets. A more targeted search can be performed with a keyword for one of the fields. In this case, we'll search for datasets with the term "PAR-CLIP" in the study abstract. This is definitely a faster approach.

Stand-alone functions for downloading and loading dee2 data

In case you want to download the data once, then reuse it many times, using the standalone scripts can be faster. Data is saved in zip format as follows:

> x<-getDEE2("celegans",SRRlist,outfile="DEE_count_data.zip")

Loading data from previously downloaded zip files is done as follows

> myGeneCounts<-loadGeneCounts("DEE_count_data.zip")
> myTxCounts<-loadTxCounts("DEE_count_data.zip")
> myQcMx<-loadQcMx("DEE_count_data.zip")
> head(myGeneCounts)

Aggregating runs data

In case you need to aggregate runs that are technical replicates, these can be aggregated easily in R. This SO thread provides some examples. Here is one way:

#Here's a data frame of two datasets

Running a differential analysis

In this example, I'll demonstrate a complete workflow for a GEO series accession (GSE93236) starting with SRAdb metadata query then differential expression analysis.

> library(SRAdbV2)
> oidx = Omicidx$new()
> query=paste(
+ paste0('sample_taxon_id:', 9606),
+ 'AND experiment_library_source:transcriptomic',
+ 'AND study_GEO:GSE93236')

> z = oidx$search(q=query,entity='full',size=100L)
> s = z$scroll()
> res = s$collate(limit = 100L)
> head(res)
