Tophat: Warning: Encountered reference sequence with only gaps
 
Hi,
I have encountered one problem listed as follows. The results are not influenced by this Warning. But I don't know if there are other influences. Could any one can tell me? Thanks.

Hi pengchy,

Try to upgrade to the latest versions of Bowtie and Tophat. In particular Bowtie <0.12.7 seem to have issues with all-gap sequence (see http://bowtie-bio.sourceforge.net/index.shtml).

Having said this, I'm also finding the warning "Warning: Encountered reference sequence with only gaps" and I'm using the latest versions. Curiously, I get the warnings when I align 57 bp reads but no warnings with 35 bp reads.

so I'm also interested in knowing why this warnings occur and if they affect the results.

Here's my tophat log file:

Yes, as you say, the warning still output when we upgrade the bowtie to version 0.12.7.

I see this when my input Fasta has only Ns
