Hello,

I am using picard-tools CollectRNAMetrices to get the read statistics of mapping to exons, and UTRs etc. I am using

java -jar /software/shared/apps/x86_64/picard-tools/1.129/picard.jar  CollectRnaSeqMetrics REF_FLAT=formatted_chrALL.refflat2 STRAND_SPECIFICITY=NONE INPUT=out.prefix.bam OUTPUT=RNAMetrices.out

and the reflat file looks like

Ec-00_000010    Ec-00_000010    chr_00  -       149     6731    149     6731    10      149,897,1535,2091,2535,3474,4006,4702,6245,6709,        428,1100,1674,2268,3070,3557,4155,4968,6363,6731,

But I keep getting an output like

I am sure my reads are mapped to exons as well. Could anyone have any idea what could be going wrong?

Any suggestions will be helpful!

Please post the output of samtools view -H [your BAM file]

ADD REPLYlink written 4.8 years ago by Dan D7.1k

for that the output looks like

@HD VN:1.0 SO:coordinate
@SQ SN:Ec-00_000010 LN:1971
@SQ SN:Ec-00_000020 LN:195
@SQ SN:Ec-00_000030 LN:2802

And this is the same chromosome id in my refflat file too

The refFlat format specifies that the first two columns are for two types of gene names, while the third is for the chromosome/contig name. In your refFlat file, the contig names (chr_00, for example) don't match the contig names shown in the header of your BAM file. The entries in the first two columns of your refFlat file match them exactly, though.

You might have another problem in that the lengths of your contigs as shown in the header of the BAM file are shorter than the transcription start and stop locations in your refFlat file seem to indicate.

Hello Dan,

I just formatted the reflat file and the third column matches exactly as the contig name in bam file. But stil I get the same results. How will the length of the contigs screwing up the calculation? I did not understand your comment on that?

If you look at the output of the samtools view command I requested you to execute, you'll see several lines that start with @SQ. The LN: value at the end of each of those lines specifies the length of the contig in the reference file that was used for the creation of the BAM. Based on this, the longest contig in your reference is 2,802 bases.

Now check out your refFlat file. Look at columns 5 through 8. These are the coding start/end locations for the genes. Notice that these locations are well outside the length of you reference contigs. It doesn't seem like the refFlat file matches the reference you used.
