so this will be the workflow:

2) the using tophat 2 to create a "transcriptome-only" subset using the whole genome index flie created in step 1

3) point the tophat 2 to the directory containing "transcriptome-only" subset using

--transcriptome-index <directory containing "transcriptome-only" subset>

for subsequent runs
