I have this error when I try to use DESeq2 1.8.2 from iuc team :
I guess there is a special character in one of the htseq-count output because the gff file contains it. I tried to clean the gff file to regenerate the htcount outputs, but I still have the same issue (but I could have "forget" one special character)
I would like to find the good place to make things work, like by adding something to decode/encode the string that create this error. First, I wonder if the issue comes from python, the DB (in postgresql which is in UTF8) or from R script. The error suggests that it is in python, but i'm not that sure about that.
Any guidance would be very appreciated, did you already met this error ?
Thank you !
