How do I pick “hits” or a subset of samples in one step and pass them downstream to the next step?

There are two ways to do this:

  1. Select your runs with the desired samples in the first step, and then propagate them to the next step in “flow mode”
  2. Upload a data file to your downstream step that references the names or IDs of your desired “hit” samples in the upstream step.

Either approach will connect the runs for purposes of tracking sample genealogy or linked data analytics.

 

Approach 1: Select your runs with the desired samples in the first step, and then propagate them to the next step in “flow mode.”

Flow mode is a view of your experiment that shows the runs on two connected steps at once, and allows you to highlight connections between runs be selecting them. (Selected runs are highlighted in a yellow shade, the corresponding connected runs are highlighted in blue.)

You can use flow mode to propagate hits from one step to the next. To do that first select your hit runs as shown by the yellow-shaded checked runs below.

Note that if you have a lot of runs, we suggest you group the hits first by right-clicking on a relevant column marking the hits and then aggregate by that column. Once aggregated, you can select the entire hit group at once.

If you are wondering how to tag your hits, we suggest you try the Riffyn AddIn for JMP that harness the analytical power of JMP in direct connection with Riffyn. You can find hits and then tag those hits in Riffyn all from JMP.

Once you have selected your hit runs, then click on the anchor icon on your downstream step as noted by the red arrow in the screenshot above. That will put you into flow mode as shown below. Then click on the “Go” button indicated by the red arrow below to propagate those its to runs on the next step.

Now you will see you its appear in the downstream step, with your hit samples listed as inputs to those downstream runs, like so:

Approach 2: Upload a data file to your downstream step that references the names or IDs of your desired “hit” samples in the upstream step.

Alternatively, you can upload a file of data containing a list of the sample names or IDs of your hits. This file can optionally contain additional data about those hits you which to upload. For example, the following file would be used to upload the same hits shown above.

You would use Parsely (see here for Parsely help) to upload this data to the downstream step, create new runs for each row of data in the file, and use the name column to assign hits from the upstream step to the newly created runs. This will automatically connect your upstream and downstream runs just as shown above.
