Tn-Seq Analysis Service

Parameters

Strategy

This parameter determines whether the genes are determined to be essential in a single condition or by comparison to a control.

Essential

Runs the TRANSIT software. With this strategy selected TRANSIT will calculate the probability of being essential using the Gumbel or Extreme Value distribution.

Conditionally Essential

Runs the TRANSIT software. With this strategy selected TRANSIT will operate in "resampling" mode and use the difference between the sum of read-counts in each condition to calculate the probability of being essential.

Output Folder

The workspace folder where results will be placed.

Output Name

Name used to uniquely identify results.

Paired read library

Read File 1 & 2

Many paired read libraries are given as file pairs, with each file containing half of each read pair. Paired read files are expected to be sorted such that each read in a pair occurs in the same Nth position as its mate in their respective files. These files are specified as READ FILE 1 and READ FILE 2. For a given file pair, the selection of which file is READ 1 and which is READ 2 does not matter.

Condition

The group/condition specified will be used to determine contrasts in the conditionally essential mode. Reads assigned to the same group will be used as replicates. Choose whether the sample is a treatment or control.

Selected Libraries

Read files placed here will contribute to a single Tn-Seq analysis. Read files placed into this table under the same condition will be considered replicates.
