  • Tophat v1.1.4 bug - cannot handle non-numeric versions of Samtools

    Hi,

    I was just using the new version of Tophat with Samtools-0.1.12a and got the following error:

    [Wed Dec 8 16:56:42 2010] Beginning TopHat run (v1.1.4)
    -----------------------------------------------

    File "/share/apps/alignment/tophat/default/bin/tophat", line 877, in check_samtools
    samtools_version = get_samtools_version()
    File "/share/apps/alignment/tophat/default/bin/tophat", line 864, in get_samtools_version
    samtools_version = [int(x.split('-')[0]) for x in version_val.split('.')]
    ValueError: invalid literal for int(): 12a


    Tophat v1.1.4 does work with the previous version of Samtools (Samtools-0.1.11).

    Hopefully this bug will be solved.

    Yes, I am having the same problem after upgrading to "samtools-0.1.12a". I guess it should be an easy fix, just hope the TopHat guys can find time to do it soon (or if the samtools guys can stick to the old convention). Thanks!

      Comment out check samtools in tophat script

      I ran into this problem and I just commented the relevant lines out in the get_samtools_version() and check_samtools() functions of the tophat script and it seems to work fine now.

        i just edited the version number in bamtk.c in the samtools folder to 1.12 and did a:

        make clean

        make

        and we seem to be all set.

            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...
