This is human data and I have used the same GTF / genome data throughout, so why are so few genes labeled? Only about 3% of the total 6284 differentially expressed genes have labels.
I have followed the protocol in the nature paper (tophat -> cufflinks -> cuffmerge -> cuffdiff)

Still looking through this data set. I have 194 named differentially expressed genes. What is the 'normal' amount of differentially expressed genes that you would expect? I know it can vary a lot based on how different the conditions are, but is this in the range of possibility? A lot of the unnamed bits are small chunks or exons. Does this sound like it might be a true result instead of an error in annotation?
