Setup of a Pipeline per Group/Condition
List of Pipelines
For setting up an overall batch processing load all the prepared pipelines into the List of Pipelines tab using the Set processing files and Add files buttons.
The Aggregate Statistics option enables the creation of an aggregate per pipeline, which summarizes the group results and is named according to the Group and Condition identifiers. Note the functionality for saving the whole definition and retrieving it at a later time.
Execution of Pipelines List
After setting the pipelines up or retrieving them, the batch can be launched with Start Processing. A dialog window appears which summarizes the tasks to be performed
and allows defining an R Workspace name. This is a convenience and only relevant if the R functionality is enabled. In that case, all group aggregates are imported into the R environment and saved as a workspace, which can directly be employed for the population analysis.
The example below illustrates the situation at the end of processing the configuration above: Four aggregates were created, transferred to the R console which automatically started, and the interface for the population statistics is opened.
The individual pipeline aggregates are also available and appear as the following entries in the database.
