That means you do have read permissions on the sequence file so that is not an issue. The error you are getting is misleading.

Can you tell me where you are trying to run this? On a stand alone server/cluster? Can you look at the directory to see if tophat wrote a log file and if it has any additional clues?

This may sound arcane but can you try to change "-o tophat-tumor-out" to "-o tophat_tumor_out" (underscores instead of hyphens) and see what happens?
