  • Trinity segmentation fault

    Hi there,

    I would like to use the transcript assembler Trinity to assemble RNAseq data while using a reference genome as a guide. I aligned my reads on the reference genome with Tophat, sorted the obtained bam file and then used the following command:

    Code:
    ~/Software/Trinityrnaseq-v2.6.6/Trinity --genome_guided_bam accepted_hits_sorted.bam --genome_guided_max_intron 32000 --max_memory 10G --CPU 10 &
    The command returns a Segmentation fault error without any further details
    Can someone help me with this please?
    thanks!

    That 10G is a guide (I assume you took that from the example command line). What size is your BAM file? You may need to assign more RAM for this job.

      Hi there,

      thanks for your e-mail. I do not think it is a matter of amount of memory. The bam file is under 100 Mb, very small actually. Also Trinity version I am using is the latest. I really can not understand what is going on. Any ideas?
      thanks a lot

        Have you run trinity with other data successfully? if not test it with something else. Did you compile the program yourself?

          Yes it returns a segmentation fault also with other paired end data. I compiled directly with the make command as stated in the manual. It fails also if I provide only arguments --left and --right.
          Actually I just checked the installation with make test_trinity and this failed with the following message

          Code:

          thanks

            Ok. So it is your compiler that may be the problem. What version of GCC did you use to compile this? You may need to use a newer version.

              Recent Advances in Sequencing Analysis Tools
              by seqadmin


              The sequencing world is rapidly changing due to declining costs, enhanced accuracies, and the advent of newer, cutting-edge instruments. Equally important to these developments are improvements in sequencing analysis, a process that converts vast amounts of raw data into a comprehensible and meaningful form. This complex task requires expertise and the right analysis tools. In this article, we highlight the progress and innovation in sequencing analysis by reviewing several of the...

              Essential Discoveries and Tools in Epitranscriptomics
              by seqadmin




              The field of epigenetics has traditionally concentrated more on DNA and how changes like methylation and phosphorylation of histones impact gene expression and regulation. However, our increased understanding of RNA modifications and their importance in cellular processes has led to a rise in epitranscriptomics research. “Epitranscriptomics brings together the concepts of epigenetics and gene expression,” explained Adrien Leger, PhD, Principal Research Scientist...
