  • Suspicious results from CuffDiff

    Hey folks
    I'm running CuffDiff from the release 0.9.2, for RNAseq. I use it with tophat, and Reference annotation for human data. Here's the simple running command:


    Code:
    cuffdiff --FDR 0.01 -N hg18_annotation01.gtf accepted_hits1.bam accepted_hits2.bam

    There are few points of concern

    first: over 90% of the genes with "status = OK" have "Significant = yes" which is kinda not so nice.

    second: that there are so many genes with very low FPKM that are among the significant ones, which can also lead to fold changes like: 1.7977e+308 !

    and third: There are genes with large FPKMs that have not been tested (status = NOTEST) , here's some sample, from the file "genes_expr.diff", with a "NOTEST gene with hight FPKM, and two low FPKM genes with test status "OK":


    Code:
    ttest_id	status	value_1	value_2	ln(fold_change)	test_stat	p_value	significant
    NR_036659	NOTEST	1119.85	6601.74	1.774 		-54.911 	0	no
    NM_001130440	OK	5.6E-09	5.7E-09	0.030 		-1.744 		0.081	no
    NM_001001977	OK	9.7E-09	1.2E-08	0.227	 	-18.416 	0	yes
    Does somebody have some idea? :-/

    thanks

    Hi Pejman,

    Any progress with the fact that so many of the genes with "status = OK" have "Significant = yes"? Kind of seeing the same thing.

      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...

      Strategies for Sequencing Challenging Samples
      by seqadmin


      Despite advancements in sequencing platforms and related sample preparation technologies, certain sample types continue to present significant challenges that can compromise sequencing results. Pedro Echave, Senior Manager of the Global Business Segment at Revvity, explained that the success of a sequencing experiment ultimately depends on the amount and integrity of the nucleic acid template (RNA or DNA) obtained from a sample. “The better the quality of the nucleic acid isolated...
