  • Cufflinks/cuffdiff: is this a bug?

    I was surprised to see that in the cuffdiff output "gene_exp.diff" there are more than one row for several genes:

    For example, in the results below the gene "Znhit6" has two estimated different from each other.

    I thought that the file with the gene-level summary will have one row per gene, and the isoform_exp.diff can possibly have multiple row (i.e. isoforms) for the same gene.

    Is this a bug or am I misunderstanding the output content?

    THanks!

    I haven't seen this behavior before in my files, so I don't have an answer for your original question. However, I notice that your data shows the same problem as mine--the ln(fold change) column is incorrect. As i understand it, this is just supposed to be the log2 of one score divided by the other score. But it's clearly not. For instance, in your first row the two FPKM scores are almost exactly a 2:1 ratio. but the ln(fold change), instead of being -1, is only -0.68.
    Does anyone have an explanation for this?
    EDIT: Duh, never mind, I mixed up log2 and ln. Sorry.

      Hello,
      I have the same issue as you and I am also interested if anyone has a solution or an explication ....
      I have another question, I found this same question on the forum but no answer: Why FPKM cufflinks are different from those of cuffdiff?

      Thanks!

        It looks like this is a known "bug" occurring when transcripts do not overlap.

          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...

          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...
