I'm following a modified version of the pipeline outlined at Except, that I have a reference genome.

Thus, I'm using kissplice2refgenome (and also I skip the trinity/transdecoder steps).

I've generated my .psl file through blat, and downloaded the annotations file in gtf format from

With the following command,

kissplice2refgenome myPSLfile.psl myAnnotationsFile.gtf -o myOutputFile

I get the following error:

Maybe this is a command-line error, I am not sure. Could you please try the following run:

kissplice2refgenome -a myAnnotationsFile.gtf -o myOutputFile myPSLfile.psl

If this still does not work, maybe it is a good idea to try with a .sam file. Transform your psl to sam using samtools/misc/ ( and try:

kissplice2refgenome -a myAnnotationsFile.gtf -o myOutputFile mySAMfile.sam

If it does not work even like this, please tell us.

Kind regards.
