Bioconductor Workflow for Microbiome Data Analysis: from raw reads to community analyses.
If you're new to GitHub, please note that this README is shown on the repository front page by convention and for convenience. Please click on the download or clone buttons to access the complete repository, and pay attention to any instructions about installing required packages that you may not have yet. The workflow is completely reproducible, if run from within this repository, after you have downloaded it to your computer.
Generate output documents
To generate the output pdfs from the .Rnw documents in this repository (eg):
The three Rnw files can be executed independently.
PartIdada.rnw is the read/bioinformatics processing and is fairly time-consuming, (it can take 3-6 hours on modern laptops). In addition, an internet connection is required, as the fastq files being processed are not included in this repository but must be downloaded.
PartIIphyloseq.rnw performs a few analyses with phyloseq and is quite fast.
PartIIIanalysis.rnw performs all the statistical analyses and the machine learning components can take about 10
If may be of more use to run this workflow interactively inside an R session. To do that, the .rnw files may be ignored, as all necessary code is contained in the .R script files.
Before running the commands in the .R files, your working directory must be set to the base directory of this repository (i.e. the directory containing the .rnw files):
setwd("/path/to/F1000_workflow/") # CHANGE ME
The code for the analysis portion of the workflow is broken up into a number of different component .R files: analysis-setup.R, preprocessing.R, ordinations.R, supervised.R, graph-testing.R, linear-modeling.R, hierarchical-test.R and multitable.R. After the code in the first two files (analysis-setup.R and preprocessing.R), the code in the remaining files can all be run independently of the others.
