Default tophat indexing

Hi,

I have a couple of questions regarding the input files for tophat.I am aligning RNA-Seq reads with canfam2(dog) genome.

1.Do I have to create an index file for the RNA-seq reads like creating an index file for canfam2 genome or should I just use the fastq file directly as input.

Thanks,
Joji
