I'm using ballgown to analyze the data and got an error.

pheno_data <- read.table(pheno_data_file, sep="\t", header=T)


Samples Group

Sample_male_1 Group1

Sample_male_2 Group1

Sample_male_3 Group1

Sample_female_1 Group2

Sample_female_2 Group2

Sample_female_3 Group2

bg <- ballgown(dataDir = "ballgown", samplePattern="Sample", pData=pheno_data)

Error in ballgown(dataDir = "ballgown", samplePattern = "Sample", pData = pheno_data) : first column of pData does not match the names of the folders containing the ballgown data.

In addition: Warning message:

In ballgown(dataDir = "ballgown", samplePattern = "Sample", pData = pheno_data) : Rows of pData did not seem to be in the same order as the columns of the expression data. Attempting to rearrange pData...

Execution halted

It seems that the order in phone_data should be exactly the same in the folder of ballgown.

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

Looks fine. Can you confirm that the data directory name and location is accurate? You can try samplePattern="" without pData = pheno_data.

Hi, I think you can reorganize the pheno_data. You can first test :

all(pheno_data$ids == list.files("./Ballgown"))

If you got FALSE, then you can re-order your rows:

row_order <- (list.files("./Ballgown"))
pheno_data2 <- pheno_data[row_order,]

This will reorder your pheno_data dataset, then you can test again:

all(pheno_data2$ids == list.files("./Ballgown"))

Hope this works.

This should have been a comment on the 3 year old answer, as you're adding code that does exactly what that answer says. Please do not add answers unless you're recommending a new approach. If you're adding value to someone else's answer, add a comment instead.

hi I recently got the same err.through reading the protocal,I find a solution: To make sure that the file names match the IDs in the phenotype file, run the following R command:

all(pheno_data$ids == list. files("ballgown"))

I guess your pheno_data's order maybe not match the sample file order. You can reorder your pheno_data_file's Samples as list. files("ballgown")) to solve this problem.
