  • Cuffcompare and cuffmerge using the genocode annotation file

    Hi All,
    I am trying to perform the cuffmerge operation on a couple of samples after cufflnks. I am using the gencode.v12.annotation.gtf as the reference file. My command is as follows
    cuffmerge -o CN_cuffmerge -g gencode.v12.annotation.gtf Assembly_GTF_list.txt

    Cuffmerge fails with the following error
    [Sun Oct 28 23:39:46 2012] Comparing against reference file gencode.v12.annotation.gtf
    Warning: Could not connect to update server to verify current version. Please check at the Cufflinks website (http://cufflinks.cbcb.umd.edu).
    Error: duplicate GFF ID 'ENST00000361547.2' encountered!
    [FAILED]
    Error: could not execute cuffcompare

    Curiously, when i run cuffcompare separately using the same gtf file and it works (from another thread on seqanswers it appears that this might be because of cuffmerge does a RABT).

    Same issue was posted here http://seqanswers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21364 by somebody else, but there were no replies to it. Hence trying one more time. Help greatly appreciated.

    What is gencode gtf? I have used ensembl or iGenome's gtf, but not aware of gencode. Can you explain? thanks

      Gencode is the gene definitions from the ENCODE project, so an alternative to Ensembl, UCSC, etc.

      JQL: I am having the exact same problems. Doing some grepping on the file I don't see duplicate IDs, or at least it isn't apparent to me that they are actually duplicated. Similar errors people seem to have solved by either finding and deleting duplicate IDs from the annotation file.

      Have you solved this yet? I am thinking on just switching to Ensembl but other people seem to be using GENCODE annotations just fine.

        Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
        by seqadmin


        The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

        Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
        by seqadmin




        The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
