    Errors in cuffdiff genes.fpkm_tracking file

    I have an mRNA-Seq experiment with a number of samples. After running them through tophat and cuffcompare I then proceeded to run the data through cuffdiff. I wasn't particularly interested in any specific differential expression testing, I just wanted to re-estimate gene level relative expression. I ran cuffdiff providing a curated combined.gtf generated by cuffcompare and four accepted_hits.sam files. According to the cufflinks manual the genes.fpkm_tracking file should contain 4 sets of qX_FPKM, qX_conf_lo and qX_conf_hi data. I was expecting q0 - q3 which is what I see in the isoforms, tss_group tracking files, but in the genes tracking file the first row (headers) lists 12 sets, q0 - q11. What's more, not all rows (loci) have the same number of data points. Many have 12 sets, consistent with the header row, some have only 4 sets which is the expected number and I've even found some rows with as many as 36 sets of FPKM and conf values.

    I am using version 0.8.2 of cufflinks. This result occurs with both the prebuilt x86_64 binaries and binaries I compiled myself.

    Has anyone else observed this behavior when providing more than two samples to cuffdiff?

    Update:

    I have now observed this behavior when only providing 2 input sam files to cuffdiff. The genes.fpkm_tracking file has q0 - q5 data sets.

    Current Approaches to Protein Sequencing
    by seqadmin


    Proteins are often described as the workhorses of the cell, and identifying their sequences is key to understanding their role in biological processes and disease. Currently, the most common technique used to determine protein sequences is mass spectrometry. While still a valuable tool, mass spectrometry faces several limitations and requires a highly experienced scientist familiar with the equipment to operate it. Additionally, other proteomic methods, like affinity assays, are constrained...
