Dear all, Today I used Tophat to map the reads from RNA-Seq, and had a look at the results using "visaulization" function. In some regions I can see splice junctions calculated by Tophat, but I don't see any reads mapping to this region. Is this a bit strange? I thought "splice junction" is calculated from the mapped reads. However, I think cufflinks only uses "accepted hits" as input, maybe it is not a big problem that "splice junction' is not accurate. Am I right? Was there something wrong when I mapped my reads with tophat? Hope you can help me figure it out. Looking forward to hearing from you. Jiwen

Hello Jiwen, It is possible to view both the TopHat and Cufflinks output together in Trackster. Are you doing this? Are you seeing that reads/transcripts are spanning the splice regions (align to one side, span the gap, then align to the other side)? This is what would be expected for RNA-seq data. It might help to import a known transcript track from UCSC or Biomart and visualize that, to get a better understanding of how genomic features are represented in the Trackster UI. If you have an error dataset from an RNA-seq tool, you can send in a bug report, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Rather, there is a question about how the calculation are done. For cases like that, the tool authors might be the best source for help. Contact info is in this wiki link "Example: unexpected results with RNA-seq analysis tools." Hopefully this helps, Best, Jen Galaxy team -- Jennifer Jackson
