Highlights

The DANIO-CODE latest data freeze (freeze-03) is now available to the public.

A major extension to our previous data release is remapping to the latest zebrafish genome build (Genome Reference Consortium Zebrafish Build 11, GRCz11). We have also added new data, new assay types (Hi-C) and new pipelines (Hi-C, 3P-seq).

General information

The DANIO-CODE international consortium was established in 2014 in order to generate the most complete functional annotation of the zebrafish genome (Danio Rerio). While zebrafish is widely used in biomedical research, annotation of its reference sequence has fallen behind other important model organisms such as Mus musculus, C. elegans and D. melanogaster following the modENCODE and FANTOM projects.

To bridge this gap, the DANIO-CODE consortium established a Data Coordination Center (DCC) available at https://danio-code.zfin.org. Since 2016, we have collected a large amount of data: 1149 zebrafish sequencing samples, 61 series (55 accessible to public) across 38 developmental stages, 21 assay types and 34 tissue types, and obtained from 31 different research institutes around the world.

The DANIO-CODE DCC aims to provide the largest and most diverse collection of genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic data for the scientific community to use freely.

Please acknowledge us if you use this data in a publication: danio-code@zfin.org

Data freeze

Data changes with time, as they are replaced, processed and generated by new or updated processing pipelines. Data freezes allow us to capture the current state of the data in our system, including raw and processed data, so that in the future each freeze can be used as a reference point for ongoing analyses. Due to the evolution of the database structure, it is necessary to perform several freezes throughout the DANIO-CODE project to match future major updates; e.g. new data addition or pipeline updates. In short, a data freeze correspond to a referenceable version of our database at a designated stage of the project and that corresponding point of time.

Check the "Additional information" paragraph for the list of datasets (series) that have been included in freeze-03, as well as the main list of changes carried on the data annotation since freeze-02.

freeze-03 contains the following aspects:

  • Annotation of experiments and samples (known as metadata)
  • Sequencing raw data (e.g. in FASTQ format)
  • Data processing pipeline scripts
  • Feature tracks to be used in genome browsers e.g. UCSC
  • Processed data from our workflow

Please note that for freeze-03, all data uploaded to the DCC are shown, but not all the data is processed or have tracks available. Check the Additional information section for the list of series with processed data available.

Data processing

For each assay type in this freeze, we have developed processing pipelines in order to produce high-quality and standardized ready-for-analysis data. The pipelines are composed of different computational steps, from genome mapping to file formatting and quality control. While pipelines share the same general workflow, they differ in the tools used, the output formats, and the way the signal and peaks are called.

The DANIO-CODE processing workgroup has developed pipelines and processed data for the following assay types:

Note: As requested by our collaborator, the scripts for Hi-C data processing are not publicly available yet. The pipeline code is not yet publicly available but preliminary access is available by contacting Dr Juan M. Vaquerizas at jmv@mpi-muenster.mpg.de.

Mapping to Genome GrCz11

The GRCz11 complete genome assembly from UCSC/Ensembl contains alternate loci scaffolds (ALT_REF_LOCI). We decided to remove these alternative sequences prior to mapping in order to have more uniform coverage distribution.

The edited version of the GrCz11 genome used for our mapping is available at: https://danio-code.zfin.org/freezer/freeze-03/danRer11_1.fa.gz

The script used for removing the alternate loci scaffolds can be found at: https://danio-code.zfin.org/freezer/freeze-03/alt_loci_remove.sh

Data availability

The data available to public for freeze-03 includes:

  • Sequencing raw data (e.g. in FASTQ format)
  • Outputs from our processing pipelines
  • UCSC tracks (danRer10 and 11)

Experimental information (metadata) for each dataset is accessible via the data export page of the DCC. To select the data related to freeze-03, select the “freeze-03” Data Version option in the left panel.

Data annotation

With such amounts of data and information to provide, and the differences in how each sequencing sample and dataset are defined, named or structured between institutions, it is necessary to find a way to coordinate all data users working on the same data. Therefore, on the DCC each dataset has to be described following an unique metadata annotation standard, practical, informative and understandable by any DCC data user (https://danio-code.zfin.org/daniocode/help).

When uploading new datasets, the metadata annotation on the DCC is provided by the data provider or a specific annotator, either by importing a formatted csv file (https://danio-code.zfin.org/daniocode/batchUpload/), or via the DCC web interface (https://danio-code.zfin.org/daniocode/addSeries/). If the metadata information is ‘structurally’ complete, the dataset is then uploaded on the DCC with the corresponding metadata annotations associated.

However, successfully uploading the annotations doesn’t mean that the informations given are correct. For each new added dataset (serie) by a data annotator, the data sources are checked, and if there are some issues with the description or the structure that are confirmed, the corrections are applied as soon as possible. The data freeze is not only related to the upload and processing of new datasets; it also includes several metadata mis-annotation corrections carried by the data curator; from one freeze to another, the data can be the same, but described differently.

lease note that the DANIO-CODE DCC is a collaborative effort, and controlling the metadata annotation on the DCC is also based on peer-to-peer reviews. Therefore, if there are any discrepancies in the metadata annotation provided for the datasets, we invite you to contact us, and we will check and solve the issue as soon as possible for the next freeze. Thank you in advance for your support.

Annotations are available on the DCC, on the Data Export page: https://danio-code.zfin.org/dataExport/

Please note that an user account on the DCC platform is still necessary to view the data annotation on the DCC. If you haven't registered yet, we invite you to sign up and contact the administrator.

Trackhub and Tracks

Trackhubs are structured web-accessible genomic datasets that can be visualized online on genome browsers such as UCSC or Ensembl genome browsers. They are very efficient for visualizing large amounts of data without needing to download them.

Tracks for each processed data have been generated and linked to a single trackhub aggregating all the signal files available on the DCC. This allow multiple signal files to be displayed in a single custom track, therefore observing multiple types of data or specifically selected ones.

We built custom tracks based on the signal output files from our different processing pipelines. For each sample and/or biosample, a track has been built based on the processed files available, and linked to the trackhub.

Tracks for the following assay types are available:

  • RNA-seq (UCSC danRer10 & 11)
  • 3P-seq (UCSC danRer11)
  • CAGE-seq (UCSC danRer10 & 11)
  • ChIP-seq (UCSC danRer10 & 11)
  • BS-seq (UCSC danRer10)
  • ATAC-seq (UCSC danRer10)
  • MNase-seq (UCSC danRer10)
  • Hi-C (UCSC danRer10 & 11)

Certain tracks required additional conversions of our data. Conversion pipelines are available on Gitlab, in the same repository as the processing pipelines:

  • RNA-seq : RNA-seq_signal_conversion_pipeline_v1.0
  • CAGE-seq : CAGE-seq_signal_conversion_pipeline_v1.1

The tracks are organised such that a session will display either selected biosample stages consisting of diverse assay types, or selected assay types showing the differences in one biosample stage ( this one will depend on how it will be organised ). Track files associated with the trackhub are made available on DANIO-CODE DCC and can be viewed in the UCSC Genome Browser.

Tracks for DANIO-CODE freeze-03 are available on the DCC: https://danio-code.zfin.org/freezer/freeze-03

What's next ?

Data since now will be processed on both the Ensembl genome version GrCz10 / UCSC danRer10 and Ensembl genome version GrCz11 / UCSC danRer11 for the mapping steps.

New tracks and track hub version of our processed data are now open to the DCC members for genome visualization. Genome browser users can access and display our generated tracks using this specific format.

We are regularly expanding the range of development stages and biosample types available, by looking into publicly available datasets in the literature, and we also seek your help to complete and enrich the database; if you would like to provide us with more data, we would be glad to be contacted by you.

New pipelines currently developed and datasets will be implemented for freeze-04, as a conclusion for our project. We will also include processed data from ATAC-seq, MNase-seq and BS-seq, remapped to danRer11

If you would like to contribute to our efforts, need help, information or provide any comments or suggestions, we invite you to contact us at the following e-mail address: daniocode@gmail.com.

We would like to thank all the DANIO-CODE consortium partners and colleagues for their support, as well as the collaborators, for providing us with data, suggestions and help for this important stage of the project.

We are grateful for all your contributions. Be sure that we will make our best efforts in carrying this project forward.

  3. Annotation major changes:
    • We noticed that some series were associated to the same publication(s), and thus should be regrouped into the same dataset/series. Subsequently, the following metadata corrections have been applied:
      • Series DCD000232SR has been deleted. Related data and annotations have been re-associated to serie DCD000072SR.
      • Serie DCD000323SR has been deleted. Related data and annotations have been re-associated to serie DCD000321SR.
      • Series DCD000208SR and DCD000209SR have been deleted. Related data and annotations have been re-associated to serie DCD000207SR.
      • Serie DCD000206SR has been deleted. Related data and annotations have been re-associated to serie DCD000203SR.
      • Missing ATAC-seq data from serie DCD000072SR has been added.
    • Some of our data were marked as short RNA-seq. Therefore we added 2 new assay types to be more accurate to the description provided by the publications: micro RNA-seq (miRNA-seq) and small RNA-seq (small-RNA-seq). "short-RNA-seq" has been replaced by "small-RNA-seq". We also corrected some data types for the following series
      • DCD000140SR: short-RNA-seq changed to small-RNA-seq
      • DCD000309SR: RNA-seq changed to miRNA

freeze-02 (2018-06-01)

General information

During the past years, zebrafish has become an increasingly important model organism for research in many areas of biology and medicine. In order to organize and coordinate all the genomics data between different data users, the DANIO-CODE Data Coordination Center (DCC) has been created.

This DANIO-CODE DCC aims to create the largest collection of genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic data with a thorough annotation of the origins and treatment of samples. We are aiming to become the reference platform for all zebrafish-related data and data metadata, including tracking, storage, processing and distribution to community resources and the scientific community.

Until now, the DANIO-CODE DCC has been used as a platform to gather a large amount of sequencing data, not only from DANIO-CODE members, but also from other public sources.

Since the start of the project in 2016, we have collected 980 zebrafish sequencing samples, divided amongst 63 datasets (series) and 17 assay types, covering 38 developmental stages and 34 tissue types, and obtained from 28 different research institutes around the world (May 22th, 2018).

As the volume of data continously increases, we regularly perform data freezes to mark the important checkpoints on the timeline of the project.

Data freeze

Data changes with time, as they are replaced, processed and generated by new or updated processing pipelines. Data freezes allow us to capture the current state of the data in our system, including raw and processed data, so that in the future each freeze can be used as a reference point for ongoing analyses. Due to the evolution of the database structure, it is necessary to perform several freezes throughout the DANIO-CODE project to match future major updates; e.g. new data addition or pipeline updates. In short, a data freeze correspond to a referenceable version of our database at a designated stage of the project and that corresponding point of time.

After some manual data curation and quality control, we excluded corrupted, incomplete, mis-annotated or relatively low-quality data from the selection. We then pre-processed the raw data with our computational pipelines to obtain some upstream analysis results like mapping outputs against the reference zebrafish genome (Ensembl genome GrCz10). This ready-for-analysis data is made available on the DCC. The data freeze will also be subject of a declaration, through an announcement on the wiki. Each collaborator will then be notified by e-mail of the data freeze release.

See the Additional information section for the list of datasets (series) that have been included in freeze-02.

A freeze contains the following aspects:

  • Annotation of experiments and samples (known as metadata)
  • Sequencing raw data (e.g. in FASTQ format) [not included in freeze-02]
  • Data processing pipeline scripts
  • Processed sequencing data [not included in freeze-02]
  • Feature tracks to be used e.g. in genome browsers

Please note that for freeze-02, all data uploaded to the DCC are shown, but not all the data is processed or have tracks available. See the Additional information section for the list of series with tracks available.

Data processing

For each assay type in this freeze, we have developed processing pipelines in order to produce high-quality and standardized ready-for-analysis data. Those pipelines are composed of different computational steps, from genome mapping to file formatting and quality control. Those pipelines globally share the same steps, but differ in the tools used, the output formats, and the way the signal and peaks are called.

The DANIO-CODE processing workgroup has developed pipelines for the following assay types (follow the links for more details about each pipeline, their database labels are written after the colon):

The data have been processed on the DNAnexus cloud-computing platform and on our local servers.

All the pipelines used for processing the data use the same genome GrCz10 / UCSC danRer10 for mapping.

Data availability

The data available to public for freeze-02 includes:

  • The curated metadata annotation for each dataset
  • The TrackHub files for UCSC Genome Browser visualization

Data annotation related to freeze-02 are accessible via the data export page of the DCC. To select the data related to freeze-02, select the “freeze-02” Data version option in the left panel.

UCSC Trackhub / Tracks

Trackhubs are structured web-accessible genomic datasets that can be visualized online on genome browsers such as UCSC or Ensembl genome browsers. They are very efficient for visualizing large amounts of data without needing to download them.

Tracks for each processed data have been generated and linked to a single trackhub aggregating all the signal files available on the DCC. This allow multiple signal files to be displayed in a single custom track, therefore observing multiple types of data or specifically selected ones.

We built custom tracks based on the signal output files from our different processing pipelines. For each sample and/or biosample, a track has been built based on the processed files available, and linked to the trackhub.

Tracks for the following assay types are available:

  • RNA-seq
  • CAGE-seq
  • ChIP-seq
  • BS-seq
  • ATAC-seq
  • MNase-seq

Certain tracks required additional conversions of our data. Conversion pipelines are available on Gitlab, in the same repository as the processing pipelines:

  • RNA-seq: RNA-seq_signal_conversion_pipeline_v1.0
  • CAGE-seq: CAGE-seq_signal_conversion_pipeline_v1.0

The tracks are organised such that a session will display either selected biosample stages consisting of diverse assay types, or selected assay types showing the differences in one biosample stage (this one will depend on how it will be organised). Track files associated with the trackhub are made available on DANIO-CODE DCC and can be viewed in the UCSC Genome Browser.

Access to the DANIO-CODE Trackhub on UCSC

Go to the UCSC genome browser, click on the "trackhub” button underneath the tracks (or follow this direct link). There you enter the url of the danio-code trackhub: https://danio-code.zfin.org/trackhub/DANIO-CODE.hub.txt, which sends you back to the genome browser with a connection to the DANIO-CODE trackhub. To make the tracks visible follow these steps:

Informations about UCSC Trackhub: https://genome.ucsc.edu/goldenpath/help/hgTrackHubHelp.html

See the Additional information section for the list of accessible tracks that have been included in freeze-02.

Metadata annotation

Sequencing data by themselves are not descriptive. Each sequencing sample is defined by many characteristics (metadata), such as the type of sequencing data, the developmental stage / hours post-fertilization of the sample, the tissue, the treatments the biosample undergoes, the sequencing instrument used, the date at which it has been sequenced, or the library preparation protocol.

With such amounts of data and information to provide, and the differences in how each sequencing sample and dataset are defined, named or structured between institutions, it is necessary to find a way to coordinate all data users working on the same data. Therefore, on the DCC each dataset has to be described following an unique metadata annotation standard, practical, informative and understandable by any DCC data user (see https://danio-code.zfin.org/daniocode/help).

When uploading new datasets, the metadata annotation on the DCC is provided by the data provider or a specific annotator, either by importing a formatted csv file (https://danio-code.zfin.org/daniocode/batchUpload/), or via the DCC web interface (https://danio-code.zfin.org/daniocode/addSeries/). If the metadata information is ‘structurally’ complete, the dataset is then uploaded on the DCC with the corresponding metadata annotations associated.

However, successfully uploading the annotations doesn’t mean that the informations given are correct. For each new added dataset (serie) by a data annotator, the data sources are checked, and if there are some issues with the description or the structure that are confirmed, the corrections are applied as soon as possible. The data freeze is not only related to the upload and processing of new datasets; it also includes several metadata mis-annotation corrections carried by the data curator; from one freeze to another, the data can be the same, but described differently.

Please note that the DANIO-CODE DCC is a collaborative effort, and controlling the metadata annotation on the DCC is also based on peer-to-peer reviews. Therefore, if there are any discrepancies in the metadata annotation provided for the datasets, we invite you to contact us at the e-mail address indicated below, and we will check and solve the issue as soon as possible for the next freeze. Thank you in advance for your support.

Annotations are available on the DCC, on the data export page: https://danio-code.zfin.org/dataExport/

Data annotation tutorial: https://danio-code.zfin.org/daniocode/help/

Please note that an user account on the DCC platform is still necessary to view the data annotation on the DCC. If you haven't registered yet, we invite you to sign up and contact the administrator.

What is next...

The DANIO-CODE DCC is still a work in progress. You will notice the data available for the freeze is very unequal in terms of quantity and quality from one category to another.

Tracks and trackhub of our processed data are now open to the DCC members for genome visualization. Genome browser users can now access and display our generated tracks using this specific format.

The data available is still being expanded in terms of quantity and quality. Many stages and assay types will be added. We are regularly expanding the range of development stages and biosample types available, by looking into publicly available datasets in the literature, and we also seek your help to complete and enrich the database; if you would like to provide us with more data, we would be glad to be contacted by you.

New pipelines are also being currently developed and will be implemented for freeze-03, making more assay types available.

We also plan to process the data on the new zebrafish Ensembl genome version GrCz11 / UCSC danRer11 for the mapping steps (https://www.ensembl.org/Danio_rerio/Info/Annotation).

freeze-01 (2017-07-14)

First DANIO-CODE whole-genome data freeze completed

General Information

During the past years, zebrafish has become an increasingly important model organism for research worldwide, for many areas of biology and medicine. In order to organize and coordinate all the genomics data between the different data users, the DANIO-CODE Data Coordination Center (DCC) has been created.

This DANIO-CODE DCC aims to create the largest collection of genomic, epigenomic and transcriptomic data with a thorough annotation of the origins and treatment of samples, looking to become the benchmark platform for all zebrafish-related data and metadata validation, tracking, storage, processing and distribution to community resources and the scientific community.

Until now the DANIO-CODE DCC was used as a platform to gather a large amount of sequencing data, not only from our collaborators, but also from other public sources. Since the start of the project in 2016, we have collected 696 zebrafish sequencing samples, divided amongst 47 datasets (series) and 14 assay types, covering 38 developmental stages, and obtained from 21 different laboratories around the world. As the volume of data increases, it became necessary to perform a data freeze to mark the important checkpoints on the timeline of our project.

Data freeze

Data freezes allow us to capture the current state of the data in our system, including raw and processed data, so that in the future, each freeze can be then used as a reference point for ongoing analyses. Due to the evolution of the database structure, it is necessary to perform several freezes throughout the DANIO-CODE project to match future major updates; e.g. new data addition or pipeline updates.

After some manual data curation and quality control, we selected different sets of data amongst the first ones that have been submitted to the DCC to be part of the freeze; we excluded every corrupted, incomplete, mis-annotated or relatively low-quality data from our selection. We then pre-processed the raw data with our computational pipelines to obtain some upstream analysis results like mapping outputs against the reference zebrafish genome (Ensembl genome GrCz10). This ready-for-analysis data will be made available on the DCC. The data freeze will also be subject of a declaration, through an announcement on the wiki. Each collaborator will then be notified by e-mail of the data freeze release.

The assays for the processed data for freeze-01 range from ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, RNA seq, and BS-seq. For these assays, sequences have been processed and have been made part of this data freeze.

See the Additional information section for the list of datasets (series) that have been included in freeze-01.

Data processing

For each assay type in this freeze, we have developed processing pipelines in order to produce high-quality and standardized upstream ready-for-analysis data. Those pipelines are composed of different computational steps, from genome mapping to file formatting and quality control. Those pipelines globally share the same steps, but differ in the tools used, the output formats, and the way the signal and peaks are called.

Until now, the DANIO-CODE processing workgroup has developed pipelines for the following assay types (follow the links for more details about each pipeline, their database labels are written after the colon):

The data have been processed on the DNAnexus cloud-computing platform.

The raw scripts of each pipeline and their DNAnexus application counterpart are available at this repository: https://gitlab.com/danio-code/public

All the pipelines used for processing the data use Ensembl genome GrCz10 / UCSC danRer10 for mapping.

Access to the data

All the data related to freeze-01 are accessible via the data export page of the DCC, by selecting the “freeze-01” version option in the left panel.

Please note that an user account on the DCC platform is still necessary to view and download the data. If you haven't registered yet, we invite you to sign up and contact the administrator of the DCC.

Update 2017-08-04: Data is currently not available. Only fastq sequencing files, track files and counts per tag cluster will be available to public for freeze-01

Update 2017-10-16: The data for freeze-01 will include: the fastq sequencing files, The quality control / statistical analysis results of the data, the clustering outputs, the TrackHub files for UCSC Genome Browser visualization. Those data are currently under preparation.

What is next...

The DANIO-CODE DCC is still a work in progress. You will notice the data available for the freeze is very unequal in terms of quantity and quality from one category to another. Amongst the different developmental stages, the number of available RNA-seq samples is unevenly distributed, including stages without any RNA-seq data.

Our goal for the next data freeze (freeze-02) will be to expand the database to fill these gaps. We are now trying to widen the range of development stages and biosample types, by looking into publicly available datasets in the literature. We also seek your help to complete our data coverage; if you would like to provide us with more data, we would be glad to be contacted by you.

Last but not least, new pipelines will be developed and implemented for freeze-02, making more assay types available to public.

If you would like to contribute to this project, need help, information or have any comments or suggestions, we invite you to contact us at the following e-mail address: michael.dong@ki.se.

We would like to thank all the DANIO-CODE consortium partners and colleagues for their support, as well as the collaborators who provided us with data for this important stage of the project.

We are grateful for all your contributions. Be sure that we will make our best efforts in carrying this project forward.
