cuffmerge error
 
Hi, All

I was trying to run the cuffmerge for my two samples. However, there is warning message point to the mitochondrial genome, however, i could not figure out the exact problem, could you please give some hints? I directly download the Saccharomyces cerevisiae/Ensembl/EF4, ref genome.

Thank you very much!

The fasta sequence for "Mito" is missing from the genome.fa file.

Hi, GenoMax

I should have mentioned that i did some initial troubleshooting, you are right that "Mito" is missing in the genome.fa file. It was named as "MT" instead. So I renamed this file, and reran it, the same error occurred again. Maybe something else has to be done besides renaming, or it is a totally different thing?

Best,

So the chromosome names in your genes.gtf are not matching what you had in the original reference file (your alignments inherited those names).

Compare these two commands:
Code:

awk -F "\t" '{print $1}' genes.gtf | uniq
and

Code:

cat genome.fa | grep ">"

If that is true then you could rename the "Mito" from the genes.gtf to "MT" and then try a re-run.

Thank you so much! The error does go away when I rename the "mito" to "MT". It just never came to me that the two files' name are inconsistent. Really appreciate your help!
