Edit user-defined matrix library


[Introduction] [View matrix library] [Modify matrix library] [Matrix Subsets]

Introduction

This task allows users to manage their user-defined matrix library. It is available by selecting "Projects & Accounts -> Pattern Libraries: Personal Matrix Library & Subsets" from the navigation bar. The following subtasks are available:


Subtasks

Matrix Library
Current Status

Click the "user-defined Matrix Library" link to get the list of your user-defined matrix families and matrices. If you click on one of the family or matrix names from the list, more details on the family or matrix (e.g.nucleotide distribution matrix) are shown.

Modify Matrix Library The following library modifications are provided:
  • Delete families:

    Select one or several families from the list of your user-defined matrix families and press the button "Delete selected families" in order to delete them. You are asked to confirm the deletion of these families before they are really deleted.

    Warning: Please note that deleting matrix families that are part of user-defined models can lead to error messages when searching for user-defined models with ModelInspector.

  • Delete matrices from families:

    Select one or several matrices from the list of your user-defined matrices and press the button "Delete selected matrices" in order to delete them. You are asked to confirm the deletion of these matrices before they are really deleted. Deleting all matrices of a family leads to deletion of the corresponding matrix family.

    Warning: Please note that deleting matrices that are part of user-defined models can lead to error messages when searching for user-defined models with ModelInspector.

  • Edit a family:

    Select a matrix family from the list of your user-defined matrix families and press the button "Edit family" to change the matrix family name and/or the family description.

  • Edit a matrix:

    Select a matrix from the list of your user-defined matrices and press the button "Edit matrix" to change the matrix name and/or the matrix description or add references/comments to the matrix.

  • Add a matrix/family:

    Upload a binary matrix file (e.g. generated by the command-line version of CoreSearch) to your user-defined matrix library.
    The extension of binary matrix files is ".lib". Only correctly formatted matrix files are accepted. Once the binary matrix file has been uploaded, the list of matrix families from this file is displayed.

    Example:

    Selection of matrices from uploaded file

    You can select the matrix families that should be included in your user-defined matrix library. The name of the matrix families and matrices can be changed. You can also add a matrix from the file to an already existing family of your user-defined matrix library by entering the name of an existing family. Optionally, the matrices can be reverse complemented before including them into the library.

Matrix Subsets

Click the "Edit matrix subsets" link to view the list of your family/matrix subsets and/or edit selected family/matrix subsets. Further available tasks are deletion and creation of family and matrix subsets. Select the task you want to use (e.g. "Edit a family subset") and press the "Continue" button.

Matrix subsets

Generation of family/matrix subsets is also possible via MatInspector.
