About data import in EaSeq
Typically for an analysis or visualization, you will need at least one ‘Dataset’ and one ‘Regionset’. EaSeq also operates with a third type of data, ‘Genesets’, but that is not requirement for most visualization modes.
Datasets will have to be mapped/aligned before import, and we have some suggestions of how to obtain Datasets, Genesets, and Regionsets and how to map unmapped Datasets.
EaSeq supports several Dataset formats that can generally be divided into two groups: Read-based Datasets and Coverage-based Datasets. Whenever possible we recommend using Read-based datasets, which holds a number of advantages. When importing this type of data EaSeq will ask on how to process the data during import, for most cases the default options are fine, but it is useful to know a little more about the processing and options. EaSeq will try to keep track on the chromosome names in the imported data and help keeping chromosome naming consistent.
