  • Error when bbmapping RNA-seq data


    I was using BBMap already for successful mapping of RNA-seq data (paired-end, Illumina) to a multi-FASTA transcriptome. Now I tried to map the very same data to the human GRCh38 genome (downloaded from NCBI human genome resources). I used the following command: ref=$mapping_ref build="$BBmap_ref_ID" in=$BBduked_reads1 in2=$BBduked_reads2 \
    outu=unmapped_"$name1"_"$date".sam outm=mapped_"$name1"_"$date".sam \
    maxindel=200k mdtag=true sam=1.4 subfilter=3 pairedonly=true
    Unfortunately, I got the following error:
    Retaining first best site only for ambiguous mappings.
    Writing reference.

    Would you have any idea, why this error comes up and how I could solve it?

    Thanks a lot in advance and have a great day,
