Download Land Data For Samples, For Selected Genes (Local analyses)
The function allows users to query the Land database with a list of gene and download them as OmicData/Table to Local Analysis project.
The available data types for download depend on the availability in the Land; descriptions for the data types can be found here.
- Land: the land data to query input genes
- Project: the target ArrayStudio project to store downloaded Land data
- SampleSet: specify a collection of samples (sampleSet) or get all samples
- VariableSet: specify a collection of columns (variableSet) or get none/all columns from sample meta data. Selected metadata will be downloaded as a table in the project. By default, only PrimaryGrouping and SecondaryGrouping columns are attached as design in each generated OmicData.
- Choose one or more data type to download: choose the land data type to download, each one will be a OmicData/Table in ArrayStudio project
- Data format
- Original data: the original data values as stored in Land, such as RNA-Seq FRKM at transcript level and microarray data at probeset level.
- Gene level data: data values are summarized at gene level
- Matrix data: data values are organized as feature * Samples in "microarray" format
- Full meta data: the full sample meta data will be downloaded as a table in the project. By default, only PrimaryGrouping and SecondaryGrouping columns are attached as design in each generated OmicData.
- Input genes: a list of genes to query. Gene can also be loaded from GeneSet
- Output name: name prefix for download data objects
Downloaded data will be listed in the targeted project. These omic data will be saved as in-file rather than in-memory. If majority of the data matrix are zeros, such as feature * sample matrix for fusion, mutation and junction, the Omic data will be saved as sparse matrix data. These improvements significantly reduce memory usage by sacrificing little performance (data loading speed).
