  • what command line options do you mean? stranded=yes is default behaviour, is it not? I'm using "-t exon" options and that's about it, really. Default strandedness and default "overlap" mode all work for me...

    • The default options are fine for doing this.

      • great, thank you!

        • Any idea about post #161???

          • flags 0/16 should be enough to tell the strand.

            did you try to visualize your bam (or small portion of it) in IGV or something like that? Make sure you have a picture you would expect to see.

              Be aware that there are two possible --stranded options: "yes" and "reverse". (I guess there's really 3 if you also count "no".) Which one is correct depends on the method used to create the strand specific RNA-Seq library. "yes" tells htseq that the first read for paired end reads (or only read for single end reads) will match the sense strand of the mRNA. "reverse" means that read 1 will match the anti-sense strand. If your libraries were prepared using an Illumina TruSeq Stranded RNA library prep kit (uses the dUTP method) then you should use '--stranded=reverse' for htseq. For other library prep kits/methods carefully check the manufacturer's documentation to determine which orientation the library is.

                Are you positive that the method/kit used to prepare the library is not strand-specific? The Life Tech SOLiD™ Total RNA-Seq Kit does generate strand-specific libraries. How was your library prepared?

                • Error: 'pair_alignments' needs a sequence of paired-end alignments

                  Hi Simon,

                  I'm new to HTSeq and encountered an error when analyzing our stranded paired-end RNA-seq data.

                  Let me describe the procedure of my analysis.
                  1. Use cutadapt to trim adapters and trim by quality
                  2. Use tophat2 to map to the mouse genome
                  3. Sort the accepted_hits.bam by name with samtools
                  4. Error reported when I was trying to count the read using htseq-count

                  'pair_alignments' needs a sequence of paired-end alignments.

                  I search the forum, this error is reported when combining paired-end and single end read accepted_hits.bam into one input file for htseq-count. I know htseq-count handles orphan reads from tophat output .bam file well. Is it possible cutadapt causes some problem in our case? Thanks.

                  Jason

                  • Hi everyone,

                    sorry for sneaking in this thread, but I guess you can definitively help and maybe it is also an easy one (- I am not a bioinformatician...yet I am trying to do my best!)


                    I am doing RNA-seq on human samples. I have run several samples on 2x75 Illumina HiSeq200, then processed raw reads with Tophat, run samtools to convert bam into sam files, sorted sam file and proceeded with Htseq. *flagstat results from samtools are all ok (excellent mapping and paired mapping rate).


                    Here my Htseq commands:

                    htseq-count -m HTSeq.scripts.count -m intersection-nonempty -s yes -i gene_id file.sam annotation.gtf > HTSeq_counts.txt 2> HTSeq_sterr.txt

                    Although HTSeq count provides the .txt file with all the ensemble ids and relative counts, the sterror file is a huge (3-4Gb) text file full of warnings:
                    Warning: Read HWI-ST1144:606:H9U7WADXX:1:2208:15447:12819 claims to have an aligned mate which could not be found. (Is the SAM file properly sorted?)

                    So I figured out that maybe I had to sort the sam file. I did it with this command, which I found in other threads:

                    sort -k 3,3 -k 4,4n hits.sam > hits.sam.sorted

                    Now I run HTSeq again (same commands, sorted sam file as input) and the sterror file comes out gigantic as before.

                    I really don't know how to proceed...
                    1) is this error file a relatively acceptable thing?
                    2) am I doing something terribly wrong which I am not aware of?

                    I appreciate any help...
                    thanks!!!
                    Manu

                      I'm not sure how the library was prepared but I was told that it was not stranded and when I look at my mapping file I see about half of the reads aligned to each of the strands which is what you'd expect for a no stranded protocol..

                        As I stated in the post previous to this one, it looks ok to me..

                          This sorts your alignment by genomic position. You want to sort by read name:

                          sort -k 1,1 hits.sam > hits.sam.sorted

                            Hi fanli,

                            thanks for your reply! Meanwhile I had done samtools sort -n on my .bam file, samtools view -h to create a .sam file and run HTSeq again.
                            I guess it worked, as the sterror file created was way way smaller, and contains this:
                            100000 sam line pairs processed.
                            200000 sam line pairs processed.
                            300000 sam line pairs processed.
                            500000 sam line pairs processed.
                            600000 sam line pairs processed.
                            700000 sam line pairs processed.
                            800000 sam line pairs processed.
                            900000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1000000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1100000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1200000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1300000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1400000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1500000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1600000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1700000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1800000 sam line pairs processed.
                            1900000 sam line pairs processed.
                            2000000 sam line pairs processed.
                            2100000 sam line pairs processed.
                            2200000 sam line pairs processed.
                            2300000 sam line pairs processed.
                            2500000 sam line pairs processed.
                            [...]
                            31936941 sam line pairs processed.

                            So I guess this is correct, right?
                            So I guess my question is: does it make any difference practically if you sort the .bam and then make it .sam or if you sort a .sam file with the command you suggested? I am too ignorant to appreciate the difference!

                            Thanks again!!!

                            • Yep, that output looks good.

                              samtools sort -n gives the same result as Unix sort -k 1,1 on the SAM file.

                                That's reassuring!!!
