Annotating Gene IDs -local-DESEQ2 rats AnnotateMyIDs

Hi there, I have seen several posts pertaining to annotation of the DESEQ2 output GeneID with gene name (ENSRNOG00000046834 etc) and for mice and humans it works easily with the AnnotateMyIDs tool. I work with rat tissue. I have installed this AnnotateMyIDs on our server, but it does not support rats. I have tried to fiddle with the code to get it to accept rats too, but have failed so far and am worried about stuffing the server!
Is there a way to add rat support to this, as admin? IF not is it possible to make a feature request somewhere for this? …It was developed by IUC. I don’t know who that is. I ran Uniprot mapping and this gives a list of the converted gene names, but not in the same file (unless I did it wrong). Is there an easier way? Thanks.

I have written a program to do this in Python outside of Galaxy. Be nice to all be inside though!

Found a way to do this around the houses; uniprot ID mapping (creating a standalone dataset) followed by “find in reference” tool, followed by some text clean-up. Would still be brilliant if annotateMYIDs would do rats though.

I think this is possible, it just means that we need to store and download another GB of annotation. I will look at this asap, promised.

@bjoern.gruening …sorry, try what/which? Did you alter annotateMYids? The Galaxy ToolSched AnnotateMYids does seem to have updated (for my installation) and when I tried annotatemyids on usegalaxy.org it still just has humanoids, mice, flies and zebras… I am assuming I have missed something… sorry…

Try it at the Galaxy EU https://usegalaxy.eu server.

If it works there, then the other usegalaxy.* servers will be updated as well.

Ah! EU Galaxy :grinning:
Yes, so I created an account there, uploaded a rat DESEQ2 and it worked beautifully.
If you do update on other Galaxies, any chance you could pop up simple instructions for setting that up through our local installations too?
Thank you guys so much!!!

@bjoern.gruening thanks, so yes that did work. Is it possible to install this tool on our own installations?

@RichardBJ, @bjoern.gruening will see your reply and give instructions.

The tool itself has not been updated yet to include Rat for use in a local Galaxy. He was probably waiting for your feedback first, then is finding time to update the tool itself so everyone can update (public + local).

Update: I also ping’d the IUC (tool authors) to see if they can offer more help/advice soon-ish. Feel free to join in on the conversation: https://gitter.im/galaxy-iuc/iuc?at=5d0be4c91e35ef14b687c982

I’ve added rat to annotatemyids and submitted a PR to the IUC repo here, let’s see if it’s accepted https://github.com/galaxyproject/tools-iuc/pull/2462

By the way there is also this deg_annotate tool that can annotate deseq2 output with a GTF so maybe that’s another option? https://toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu/repository?repository_id=e33c4ee81be2b1b4
