Import input files

Once the pipeline is configured, you will need to import your desired files to the Input folder using the the following steps:

  1. In the PipelineView, right click on the Input folder under the Data folder, then select the import (figure below). A pop-up menu appears which lets you select the files that you want to import.

  5. Click the checkbox for the files that you want to run the pipeline on; currently the CLAMP-Cancer pipeline can only process files with the .txt extension. Also, CLAMP-Cancer assists you in selecting your desired files in three different ways: Filter Types, Select All and Deselect All.
    Filter Types: Allows you to define the type of files that will be imported. For example, you may only want to import files with the .txt extension
    Select All: Allows you to choose all displayed files
    Deselect All: Allow you to deselect the files that have already been selected
  6. Click on the Browse button next to the "Into folder" field to choose the folder that you want to import your files to. Here, we keep the default directory.
  7. Click on the Finish button.

Now, you can double click on the Input folder to see the imported files
