Quartet RSeQC Report is a quality assessment tool for RNA-seq data. It contains two subcommands: workflow and report. The workflow command takes raw reads (in FASTQ format), produces a set of qc result files from them (More details on RNA-Seq QC for Quartet). and you can use report command to report the results finally (More details on QC Report for Quartet RNA-Seq).

Assuming your data files are in the /your-dir directory.

  1. Prepare a set of subdirectories

    mkdir -p /your-dir/fastq_screen /your-dir/hisat2 /your-dir/gtf /your-dir/results /your-dir/raw-data /your-dir/report
  2. Download the dependency files

    # 1. Download reference genomes for `fastq_screen` (More details on
    wget -O /your-dir/fastq_screen/
    unzip /your-dir/fastq_screen/ -d /your-dir/fastq_screen
    # 2. Download GTF file (More details on
    wget -O /your-dir/gtf/Homo_sapiens.GRCh38.93.gtf
    # 3. Download Hisat2 index files (More details on
    wget -O /your-dir/hisat2/
    unzip /your-dir/hisat2/ -d /your-dir/hisat2
  3. Place your data files into /your-dir/raw-data directory

  4. Pull docker image

    More versions on Docker Registry

    docker pull
  5. Generate qc result files by workflow command

    docker run -d -v /your-dir:/data -it workflow -i /data/hisat2 -g /data/gtf/gencode.v36.annotation.gtf -s /data/fastq_screen/fastq_screen.conf --output-dir /data/results --r1 /data/raw-data/example_R1.fq.gz --r2 /data/raw-data/example_R2.fq.gz
  6. Report the results

    docker run -d -v /your-dir:/data -it report -d /data/results -m /data/metadata.csv --output-dir /data/report
  7. Find your QC report in /your-dir/multiqc_report.html
