Hi all, I've been having trouble running my Arabidopsis thaliana NGS pipeline in galaxy. Specifically, tophat alignment to the built-in-index worked fine (visual assessment in IGV) but I couldn't get cufflinks/Cuffduiff to run using the same annotation.gtf file I'd used in the alignment. Error message = Error running cufflinks. return code = -11 cufflinks: /lib64/ Cufflinks/cuffdiff would run without the annotation file and give a differential expression output but without the annotation file the gene_id was meaningless (XLOC_000001 etc) and all I had was a locus for a region with differential expression. After a lot of frustration I re ran the alignment using a custom built genome and annotation file from Illumina: and hey presto, cufflinks/cuffdiff work fine. I did try altering using both chr1 and 1 for chromosome name as a discord between the chromosome naming seemed to frequently be a problem. Apart from this, what other reasons could there be for the built-in-index not working with annotation.gtf files? Is this an issue with the built-in-index (Mouse-ear Cress (Arabidopsis thaliana): Arabidopsis_thaliana_TAIR10)? Cheers, Tom SmithUniversity of York, UK

Hi Tom, A mismatch between chromosome identifiers can definitely be problematic. These have to be exact. The TAIR 10 genome in Galaxy has these identifiers: chr1 chr2 chr3 chr4 chr5 chrM chrC Comparing these to your GTF file would be the way to see if any mismatches remain. It is curious GTF file worked with Tophat, but then not with Cufflinks/Cuffdiff. Did you really use the Junction/Gene Annotation model option, and the GTF file worked OK with TopHat, then failed later with Cufflinks/diff? This may mean that the problem is not with the GTF file at all, but rather with something else in the method/settings. Did it work with Cuffcompare or Cuffmerge? There are no known issues with the index and it is the same index being used for all tools (Bowtie/Tophat/Cufflinks-merge-compare-diff), but if you continue to have problems after double checking the IDs and other methods (steps between Tophat and Cufflinks, if any, then steps between Cufflinks and Cuffdiff), please send in a bug report and we can try to provide feedback. Just for reference, this is our tutorial for RNA-seq analysis: Hopefully this helps, but if this does not fully resolve the issue, we can work together through the bug report, Best, Jen Galaxy team -- Jennifer Jackson
