Question Tophat Fusion Post Doesn't Report Fusions

Hi All,

I'm working on mouse transcriptome data, single end reads from Ion torrent system.

I wanted to identify fusion candidates with the help of tophat-fusion and executed the below commands.

1. tophat2 -p 10 -o ./tophat_out_against_chr_bowtie1_with_fusion --fusion-search --bowtie1 ../mouse_chr_seqs/index/mm_chr_index abc.fastq
2. tophat-fusion-post -p 10 -o ./tophat_fusion_out_chr --non-human --num-fusion-reads 1 --num-fusion-pairs 0 --num-fusion-both 5 ../mouse_chr_seqs/index/mm_chr_index

After running tophat2, I got few fusions, however after running tophat-fusion-post, I don't get anything the potential_fusions file or the result file.

Could some one help me in getting the issue resolved....???

Thanks a lot.!

1. I followed the directory structure identically as explained in tophat website and in the forums.
2. I tried changing num-fusion-pairs to zero, as my reads are NOT paired end.
3. Path to all the tools like bowtie, samtools, tophat, etc. are set properly
4. Folder naming conventions are properly followed (Beginning with tophat)
