  • .gtf file issue - Error at parsing .tlst line (invalid strand):

    I'm trying to align my reads to a genome + transcriptome, which is in the form of a .gtf file. It gets half way through and then runs this error:

    Running that error tells me this:

    Error at parsing .tlst line (invalid strand):
    	31958 TCONS_00032473 scaffold40. 5-1634
    (ERR): bowtie2-align exited with value 141
    Which suggests that there is something wrong with the .gtf file at point 00032473. Some googling revealed its something to do with missing strand info, but nobody seemed to provide any solutions. Can anyone help me modify the file or something to make it work? Thanks
