I have a naive question: what happens if I add "fr-firststrand" option when I run Tophat but don't add it for Cufflinks?
If your data is stranded, then you'll get slightly more accurate alignments and novel genes assembled by cufflinks won't have a meaningful strand assigned to them.
Ok, makes sense. Thank you!
