Visualisation workflow heatmap x-axis error

Hi, I am trying to run the biobakery workflows tutorial using the biobakery/workflows Docker image. I used the sample output files to run the visualisation workflow but the x-axis of the heatmaps in the final report are all numbers instead of the sample names. I don’t know what’s the issue since all the other graphs are fine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!




Hello, Thank you for the detailed post and sorry for the slow reply. The heatmaps are generated with hclust2. Can you double check your hclust2 version and if needed upgrade to the latest version?

Thank you,
Lauren

Hello Lauren,

Thanks for your reply. The hclust2 version I am using is 1.0.0.

Thank you for the reply. Can you try upgrading your version of the workflows? I think this should resolve the issue with the heatmaps when using the latest hclust2.

Thank you,
Lauren

Hello Lauren,

Thank you for your reply. I have been using the latest version of workflows as well. The problem still persists.

Thank you for the reply. Can you double check the formatting of the input files? If those are okay can you post the workflows version you are using?

Thank you,
Lauren

Hi Lauren,

Thank you for your reply. I realised that I have not been using the latest version of biobakery workflows after all, and the heatmaps problem was solved after I updated to the latest ver (3.0.0.a.7). However, another problem has occurred. When I try to redownload the wmgx databases, I get this error message:

I have tried redownloading it many times but the same thing happens. I hope to receive your assistance again, thank you!

Hello - Thank you for the follow up. I am glad to hear the version upgrade resolved the issue. Is it possible you are running out of disk space? If not, you might try again today to see if it was just a temporary issue. Occasionally due to server load large downloads of the databases might be slow.

Thank you,
Lauren

Dear Lauren,

Thank you once again for your help. After clearing up the disk space, I managed to download the databases. However, I’ve run into another error for the visualisation workflow.

i tried adding --format html and it worked, but i would like to get the pdf version of the report because I managed to get pdfs for other runs that I did. I hope to get some help again, thank you so much.

Hello, I am glad to hear you got the database issue fixed. The latest issue looks like it is coming from your LaTex install. You might try installing LaTex again or try a different package. We use the texlive package for our Ubuntu builds.

Thank you,
Lauren

Dear Lauren,

Thank you for your suggestion. I tried running it with other samples and it is fine, but the one sample that generated the error in the first place is still failing.

I have also encountered another error when running the visualisation workflow:

so far this error has only occurred for samples that do not have 8 input files (eg 3 or 5 sets of paired end reads). do let me know if there’s a solution for this, thank you again!
