Add ability to catalog and map expression-only datasets
Add ability to catalog a dataset and map it to an existing assembly. This is the first step in implementing within the Agalma workflow the analyses described at:
A typical use case would be:
- The investigator would assemble paired-end long read data for multiple species and perform phylogenetic analyses, as is currently possible.
- Multiple replicated short-read data will be available for several tissues for a subset of the species in the phylogenetic analyses.
- Each of these expression datasets will be mapped to the full set of isoforms from the corresponding species (as specified by the load_id), and the abundance of each isoform and gene for this dataset determined with rsem.
- These counts will be loaded into an expression table in the database for subsequent analysis. This table will include columns for the reference sequence name (gene names should be the same as those in the trees), the id of the dataset of mapped reads, and the count.
