Hi all,

I am working on RNA-seq data of Arabidopsis plant. I have a list of Deferentially Expressed Genes obtained from DESeq2. Now I would like to do further analysis using GSEA. I prepared the rank file by using the code below:

x <- read.csv("DEG-B_vs_A.csv")
attach(x)
x$fcSign=sign(log2FoldChange)
x$logP=-log10(pvalue)
x$metric= x$logP/x$fcSign
y<-x[,c("Gene", "metric")]
head(y)`
write.table(y,file="DE_genes.rnk",quote=F,sep="\t",row.names=F)

This rnk file looks like this:

   Gene   metric
  

1 AT1G01060 2.743735 2 AT1G01100 3.372178 3 AT1G01180 -3.800650 4 AT1G01240 -7.978849 5 AT1G01280 3.131964

1.) Now when I try to load this file on GSEA 3.0, it shows some error:

There were errors: ERROR(S) #:1 Parsing trouble

Could you please help me in this regard?

2.) I also tried to use this file on WebGestalt link. It shows the error:

ERROR: All IDs in the uploaded list are not annotated to any category of the functional database.

R error (1555065730).

I am using the default parameters and I am selecting genesymbol for Select Gene ID Type in input file. Can you please tell me if the code I used for .rnk file is right or I did some mistake. Any help from you will be very helpful for me.

Thank you

For GSEA, check the example file formats to get an idea of the formatting. I recently used the JAVA implementation of GSEA for the first time and got it working.

cls file

Contains information on factors in our data. 35 7 means, in this case, 35 samples and 7 unique levels for the listed factor. On the third line of the file, we list the actual levels as they relate to our samples - these should line up to the columns in the gct file.

NB - these are space-delimited.

35 7 1
# d0 d1 d2 d4 d6 d8 d10
d0 d1 d2 d4 d6 d8 d10 d0 d1 d2 d4 d6 d8 d10 d0 d1 d2 d4 d6 d8 d10 d0 d1 d2 d4 d6 d8 d10 d0 d1 d2 d4 d6 d8 d10

gct file

This contains the expression values. You need a NAME and DESCRIPTION column before the counts values actually start. Description can be just na. Again, note the header information, here, 18062 genes X 35 samples.

NB - these are tab-delimited.

Thank you @Kevin. I am new for this kind of analysis. In total I have 8 samples (4 treated and 4 untreated) with 3 replicates.

countdata <- read.table("NewTotalCounts.txt", header=TRUE, row.names=1)
countdata <- countdata[ ,6:ncol(countdata)]
countdata <- as.matrix(countdata)
library(DESeq2)
dds <- DESeqDataSetFromMatrix(countData=countdata, colData=coldata, design=~genotype*treatment)
dds
dds <- DESeq(dds)
matrix(resultsNames(dds))

"2" "genotype_C_vs_A"   
"3" "genotype_D_vs_A"

"5" "treatment_Post.HL_vs_Mock"
"6" "genotypeC.treatmentPost.HL"
"7" "genotypeD.treatmentPost.HL"
"8" "genotypeB.treatmentPost.HL"

I am confused now which expression values I have to give in the gct file? Please help me in this regard.

Hey, you should go one step more to produce the rlog or vst counts, and then use those in the gct file.

ADD REPLYlink written 5 months ago by Kevin Blighe48k

Thank you. I have used this code:

rld <- rlogTransformation(dds)
head(assay(rld))
hist(assay(rld))
write.table(assay(rld), file="gsea.txt")

I obtained this file:

Thank you Kevin, It is working now. I have downloaded the gene data sets files for Arabidopsis thaliana from the website enter link description here. Is this right to use that? It shows error when the GMT formatted file for all gene sets is uploaded. But works well when some of individual data sets are uploaded.

The GMT files through that link that you posted do not look correct, to be honest. Take a look at the format and compare to the one that I posted, above.

Are you using GSEA JAVA version from the command line?

ADD REPLYlink written 5 months ago by Kevin Blighe48k

I am not using the command line but GSEA Desktop Application. The format of these files looks different from the one you posted. I do not know from which source I can get the gene data sets for Arabidopsis. I could not find Arabidopsis on gsea/msigdb. Could you please suggest some link? Other thing I would like to be clear, I am using ATH1_121501.chip for Chip platform in GSEA analysis. Is this the right chip to use for Arabidopsis thaliana plant RNA-seq data?

ADD REPLYlink written 5 months ago by umeshtanwar210

I think that it may involve some searching. For example, I found this and they gene sets are in the correct format: http://www.go2msig.org/cgi-bin/prebuilt.cgi?taxid=3702

It is also easy to create custom gene sets.

looks like Arabidopsis

Yes, its Arabidopsis.

Thank you for the response. These are the official gene symbols for Arabidopsis.
