This page explains the content of the column ContrastType in the Excel file, which works as a mapping file in the second step of Build ComparisonLand From Raw Data

See Comparison Categories for definitions of the terms, as used by the Land curation team.

The content in this column must be one of them in the column of Recognized term in the following table, which are recognized by our land tools.

The content of the ContrastType will be stored in TLV file, and when these TLV files get published to the land, they will show these content as ComparisonCategory corresponding to the second column here:

Warning.png WARNING: When user specify certain ContrastType in the ContrastMapping.txt file, there might be some limitations for the corresponding column in the design table (the Sample sheet in the Excel file used in step 1 for Build ComparisonLand From Raw Data), which means that certain ContrastType, for instance, if user specify treatment vs. control, it will require some specific column name in the design table including Treatment; SubjectTreatment; TreatmentStatus; Transfection; Infection; SubjectInfection; AllergenChallenge; Stimulation

Here is information to show which column name is required for each ContrastType, so user can follow the principle from the very beginning.

  • "Disease vs. Normal": DiseaseState or OLandDiseaseState or MaternalDisease
  • "CellType1 vs. CellType2": CellType or OLandCellType
  • "Treatment vs. Control": Treatment or SubjectTreatment or TreatmentStatus or Transfection or Infection or SubjectInfection or AllergenChallenge or Stimulation
  • "Responder vs. Non-Responder": Response and (Treatment or SubjectTreatment or TreatmentStatus)
  • "Disease1 vs. Disease2"
  • "Treatment1 vs. Treatment2"
  • "Tissue1 vs. Tissue2"
  • "Healthy vs. Control"
  • "Genotype vs. Wild Type"
  • "Genotype1 vs. Genotype2"
  • "Phenotype1 vs. Phenotype2"
  • "Disease Stage1 vs. Stage2"
  • "Dosage1 vs. Dosage2"
  • "Strain1 vs. Strain2"
  • "Resistant vs. Sensitive"
  • "Other"
