Global validation

In this section you can validate all the results in your study in a single step.

Different strategies can be followed:

If all the genotypes in your study are of the same kind (eg. they are all from autosomic chromosomes or from the Y chromosome) you can validate them all without adding further information. The different options are:

- Autosomes:

All genotypes are converted to a diploid form in case they are in haploid form (A -> AA) and they status is changes to "validated".

- Y chromosome or Mitochondrial DNA:

All genotypes are converted to a haploid form in case they are diploid (AA -> A). If heterozygous genotypes are found, they are reported as errors in the validation report that appears in the User Results section.

- X chromosome:

In this case you will need to have sex information in the Samples Table.  In the present section you will have to determine which value defines male and which female using the boxes that will appear:

All genotypes in males will be converted to haploid form and the genotypes in females will be converted to diploid forms.

Genotypes will be validated according to the information in the "Chromosome" field of the SNPs Table. If this field contains the "X" value, information of the "Sex" field of the Samples Table will also be needed.

For each SNP, depending on the value found in the SNPs and Samples Tables, genotypes will be validated according to the following the criteria:

- Autosomes:

All genotypes of the SNP are converted to a diploid form in case they are in haploid form (A -> AA) and they are validated.

- Y chromosome or Mitochondrial DNA:

All genotypes of the SNP are converted to a haploid form in case they are diploid (AA -> A). If heterozygous genotypes are found, they are reported as errors in the validation report that appears in the User Results section.

- X chromosome:

Genotypes of the SNP are converted to diploid form in female samples and to haploid form in males.

In this case you will need to have sex information in the Samples Table.  In the present section you will have to determine which value defines male and which female using the boxes that will appear:

This option will leave all the genotypes in their current form (either haploid or diploid) and will change their validation status to "Validated" so that the user will be able to perform analysis with them.

This option has to be performed only when we have absolute certainty that the genotypes are in the correct form. For example, if using the Backup / XML Download option we create an backup file from a study whose genotypes have already been validated, and then we upload this file as a plate in another study, we probably don't need to check the validation again and we can consider the genotypes to be correct as they are.
