Metadata Search

The Metadata Search allows you to input study, subject and/or sample filters to view information about your desired sequences. At the end, you can download these sequence results.

Metadata to Sequences

There are two stages to the metadata search.  The first is the metadata stage, where you can see information about sequences based on their metadata such as study, subject, and sample metadata.  The second stage is sequences, where you can filter based on sequence attributes like Junction AA and VDJ region, and download your results.  You can navigate between the two in the top navigation menu.

You can filter your search in the boxes on the left-hand side of the search page, either by study, subject, or sample.  For now, filters with free-text entries require an exact word match.  The more general you are, the more chance you have to get search results, for example, results will return for "cancer", but not "breast cancer". For more information on filters, hover over the blue question marks.

You can see your results from a filtered search here.


Individual Samples

Here you can see your results as individual samples with associated metadata.  When you press the blue arrows beside a metadata item, it is sorted by a metadata attribute.  To select individual samples for download, use the checkboxes to the left of the samples.

Sequences in Metadata search

Once you press the Browse sequences from selected samples button, you will view the sequences from your selected samples on a new page.  You  can still go back to the metadata page, and see and remove the filters you applied there.Description: Macintosh HD:Users:francesbreden:Desktop:documentation:screenshots:sequencesearch.png


Individual Sequences

You can see the first 25 individual sequences from your search results on this page.  You can choose which associated data you would like to view about your sequences, e.g. Annotatiol Tool, Junction Length (AA).
