  • Empty FPKM estimates after cuffcompare

    I ran cufflinks on several BAM files and get tracking.gtf files looking like (truncated lines):

    Code:
    Chr1    Cufflinks   transcript  22746   23685   1000    +   .   gene_id "CUFF.8"; transcript_id "CUFF.8.1"; FPKM "32.3697173163"; frac "1.000000"; conf_lo "28.299584"; conf_hi "36.439851"; cov "52.362831";
    Chr1    Cufflinks   exon    22746   23020   1000    +   .   gene_id "CUFF.8"; transcript_id "CUFF.8.1"; exon_number "1"; FPKM "32.3697173163"; frac "1.000000"; conf_lo "28.299584"; conf_hi "36.439851"; cov "$
    Chr1    Cufflinks   exon    23096   23685   1000    +   .   gene_id "CUFF.8"; transcript_id "CUFF.8.1"; exon_number "2"; FPKM "32.3697173163"; frac "1.000000"; conf_lo "28.299584"; conf_hi "36.439851"; cov "$
    Chr1    Cufflinks   transcript  79944   80186   1000    +   .   gene_id "CUFF.3"; transcript_id "CUFF.3.1"; FPKM "3077.9273423595"; frac "1.000000"; conf_lo "1765.494714"; conf_hi "4390.359971"; cov "2714.84$

    and then run cuffcompare to compare with a merged gtf file as
    Code:
    cuffcompare -o myprefix -r merged.gtf transcripts.gtf
    but, the myprefix.tracking only gives me FPKM estimates equal zero for all genes:

    Code:
    TCONS_00000001  XLOC_000001 XLOC_000001|TCONS_00000001  c   q1:CUFF.8|CUFF.8.1|100|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|-
    TCONS_00000002  XLOC_000002 XLOC_000002|TCONS_00000002  =   q1:CUFF.11|CUFF.11.1|100|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|-
    TCONS_00000003  XLOC_000003 XLOC_000003|TCONS_00000003  =   q1:CUFF.2|CUFF.2.1|100|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|-
    TCONS_00000004  XLOC_000004 XLOC_000004|TCONS_00000004  =   q1:CUFF.4|CUFF.4.1|100|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|-
    TCONS_00000005  XLOC_000005 XLOC_000005|TCONS_00000006  c   q1:CUFF.16|CUFF.16.1|100|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|0.000000|-
    T
    note that CUFF.8 in the transcripts.gtf has a non-zero FPKM estimate but this does not propagate to the myprefix.tracking file.

    Any ideas why? Grateful for answers.

    Have you tried running it with Cufflinks-1.1.0? (released last week)

    I noticed a similar problem with the .tmap files generated by cuffcompare in release 1.0.3, however that problem seems to have been corrected in the most recent release.

      Thanks for the tip, I tried Cufflinks-1.1.0 and indeed this solves the problem!

        Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
        by seqadmin




        The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

        Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
        by seqadmin


        In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
