    Ah, it looks like tophat needs to seek() in the fastq file which means streamed input won't work at all. Sorry, looks like this does need to be uncompressed to disk after all.

    Hm, that's giving me the same error that the process substitution did. Let me know if it works for you. Is this a shell-specific thing?

    A trick for using pipes with programs that don't normally accept anything on standard input is to specify the input file as /proc/self/fd/0. So for tophat that would be:

    Code:
    gzip -dc foo.fastq.gz | tophat genome /proc/self/fd/0
    Of course you're out of luck if you have paired-end reads.

    Note that this is Linux-specific. It won't work on MacOS and I'm not sure about other Unixes.

    I would also like to know... I tried some bash process substitution, nothing seems to be working.

    Does TopHat support Unix piping?

    Hi,

    I know Bowtie supports piping (although not so convenient to use for paired-end reads), and I am wondering if TopHat does the same. I tried something like "gzip -dc $fq | tophat $genome -" but it doesn't work. Did I do anything wrong? Or if there are other ways to run TopHat without decompressing the sequence files first? Please feel free to share your tips/suggestions. Thanks a lot!

    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...
