Hi everybody, I got a cufflink file like following, with most of the rows have been mapped from XLOC ID to gene symbol, but some of the rows not. Do you know how to map those unmatched ones? Does this mean those unmatched ones are some novel regions without gene name yet? Thanks!

Yes, if you used reference annotation and some transcripts were assigned to a known gene/transcript and some were not, those that were not are novel with respect to that annotation source. Check the tracking files for more details (status, etc): Cufflinks manual link

There are several data providers that curate annotation, so you might want to run the analysis using a few different annotation sources (if available for your genome) and compare. Each models the gene bounds/transcripts a bit differently.

Thanks! Jen, Galaxy team
