0.1 Introduction

The bodymapRat package contains gene expression data on 652 RNA-Seq samples from a comprehensive rat transcriptomic BodyMap study. These samples include the sequence identifier information provided in the header of the FASTQ files which can be used as a surrogate for batch. These samples have not been normalized or pre-processed.

The data are provided in a SummarizedExperiment. The phenotypic information can be extracted using the colData() function and a description of the phenotypic data is listed in the table below:

Title Description
sraExperiment SRA Experiment ID
title Title of sample provided by the authors
geoAccession GEO Accession ID
BioSample BioSample ID
avgLength Average read length
instrument Machine identifier (from FASTQ header)
runID Run ID (from FASTQ header)
fcID Flow cell ID (from FASTQ header)
fcLane Flow cell lane (from FASTQ header)
tile Tile (from FASTQ header)
xtile xtile (from FASTQ header)
ytile ytile (from FASTQ header)
organ Body organ
sex Gender
stage Stage
techRep Technical replicate number
colOrgan Column of colors to help with plotting
rnaRIN RIN number
barcode barcode number

The data can be accessed as follows:

library(SummarizedExperiment) 
library(bodymapRat)

We use the bodymapRat() function to download the relevant files from Bioconductor’s ExperimentHub web resource. Running this function will download a SummarizedExperiment object, which contains read counts, as well as the metadata on the rows (genes) and columns (cells).
