  • isoforms.fpkm_tracking also contains genes?

    Hello,

    I can't solve a problem with my cufflinks/cuffnorm output.
    I'm using gencode v19 GTF file. Read were aligned to genome using STAR.

    I have problems with the output in isoforms.fpkm_tracking file.
    While I have a correct genes.fpkm_tracking output where only the genes are listed, in isoforms.fpkm_tracking I have both the transcripts (ENST*) AND the genes (ENSG*) listed and quantified.
    But fpkm values of the genes are not the sum of the single isoforms, and in some cases transcripts have higher fpkm values then the associated genes.

    Why do you think this happens?
    Thank you
    Marco

    Hi Marco,

    I encountered the same problem as you when I was trying to use cuffnorm on gencode v19 gtf file. There could be two issues.

    1. There are some additional fields that are required by cuffdiff/cuffnorm. They can be added using cuffcompare according to the cufflinks manual page.

    2. Somehow cuffnorm does not recognize the entries for genes in the gtf file (3rd field as "gene"). It will treat these entries as transcripts. Perhaps you can remove them first.

    Hope this help.

      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...
