  • Different FPKM values of cufflinks and cuffdiff in latest version

    Hi all,
    This problem has been addressed here http://seqanswers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=4606. And I noticed that in Cufflinks release 0.9.1, the problem of inconsistent FPKM values returned by cufflinks and cuffcompare had been claimed to be solved. Unfortunately, I inspected the FPKM values of many of the reconstructed transcripts and found they have different FPKM values. I am just curious: is it due to slightly different way of estimating FPKM in cufflinks and cuffdiff? Hope this problem will be eventually solved.

    Thanks.

    I don’t know if this could be the same problem, but I have observed problems with the calculated FPKM values from cufflinks. I don’t know if it is a bug, but the values for a transcript can change, dependent on the size of the GTF file.
    I have for example made a small bam file containing only reads from the AVEN gene in the region (chr15:31,945,720-32,118,595 in hg18).
    If I run cufflink with a gtf file containing ONLY that gene it will give FPKM of 668896.
    If I run cufflink with a gtf file containing AVEN and the overlapping gene CHRM5 it will give FPKM of 655518.
    If I run cufflink with a large gtf file containing all or maybe 10.000 genes it will give FPKM of 0.
    How can this be?

    I attach the relevant files.

      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...
