​ Because the upstream analysis is done by the company , But I found that I sent the wrong sample name when I told them , I want to change each one later orig.ident and groups Name , Baidu asked if there were any similar problems , As expected seurat A similar problem was found on the official website of (

##You can add metadata columns using AddMetaData, the [[ operator, or the $ operator. For your specific case, I would create a character vector of 'ctrl' or 'patient' based on testing the value of your metadata column, then add it in like I did above.

Because we need to add addmetadata This function , So I remembered that I used this function when I did the reproduction a few days ago , So prepare for direct handling , Change the author's code .

First you need a xlsx A table of formats , Fill in the information you want , Similar to the following format .

xlsx Table example

One column needs to be the same as the information in your own matrix , Because we're going to use left_join A merger , What I choose here is orig.ident.

##load library, First load a bunch of packages that are not available , Prevent the following code from finding the function , I can't get it 
## Read first xlsx A table of formats 
metatable <- read_excel("id_change.xlsx")
metadata <- FetchData(seu_obj, "orig.ident")
metadata$cell_id <- rownames(metadata)
metadata$sample_id <- metadata$orig.ident
##left_join: Left connection , Retain X All observations in , In this way, the original table data can be retained 
metadata <- left_join(x = metadata, y = metatable, by = "orig.ident")
rownames(metadata) <- metadata$cell_id
##AddMetaData: Add metadata column ;AddMetaData() The content passed to the metadata parameter in must have the same as the data The data frame of the row name that matches the row name in 
seu_obj <- AddMetaData(seu_obj, metadata = metadata)
## Check the matrix 
## Found more original、sample_id、cell_id、Groups Several columns , Need to put original Replace with orig.ident
## If it is cell_id And sample_id Self research is no longer needed , You can skip those two lines of code 
## delete orig.ident That's ok , Reference resources seurta Code for answering questions on the official website 
seu_obj$orig.ident <- NULL
## New generation orig.ident A list of 
seu_obj$orig.ident <- seu_obj$original
## delete original Column 
seu_ob$original <- NULL
## see seurat The situation of the object 
## Select the newly given group for test, See if there can be a picture , It shows that the change is reasonable 
DimPlot(seu_obj, = "orig.ident",  pt.size = 0.1)

The test of umap chart


At present, no problem is found by manually changing the columns of the matrix , Tomorrow, we need to discuss with the company about the feasibility of this method , But it can draw a picture , Part of the basic guarantee is still correct , There may be a need for barcode Make another modification .
