Extracting selected protein families in comparison document


#1

Hi Daniel

I am trying to extract taxonomic information for certain protein families either from the SEED or KEGG tree. I am able to use the “Extract to new document” option on individual sample files, however it would be great if this feature is available in the comparison mode as well

Regards,
Aditya

I have implemented this, it will be available in the next release.

Hi @Daniel I noticed that when I do this from comparison mode (using 6.9.0) it seems to combine the data from the individual samples into one and creates one RMA file (not a new Comparison.megan). I can work around this for now by extracting per sample and then comparing (I only have six samples) but I can see this being an issue with a huge number. Is there a way to keep the samples separate?

Seems like a reasonable idea. I will look into this in the future. For now, unfortunately, you will have to process each file separately. (Note that the UE allows one to open a file, select nodes and extract to a new document in a script.)
