I created a python 2.7 environment using conda, and installed tophat and bowtie. I'm trying the test data as specified here:

However, I get the following error:

Not what you ask for, but Tophat is no longer considered the best tool on the shelf for mapping, it's even deprecated. Instead, you should look at its successor hisat2 or alternatives such as STAR or BBmap.

Thanks. My group is discussing this right now. I'm actually not the fusion person, but I was trying to get a working conda recipe going for them. Turns out to be two things: 1) python 3 incompatibility in conda recipe and 2) bowtie2 + tophat version incompatibility. https://github.com/bioconda/bioconda-recipes/issues/3510

But your comment is definitely in the right direction.

I have a pull request to implement the changes. Can you confirm that using the correct version of bowtie2 still doesn't work under python3?

ADD REPLYlink written 2.7 years ago by Devon Ryan91k

I get the usual I/O error with using python 3

I've merged the fix for this, thanks for letting everyone know about the issue!

ADD REPLYlink written 2.7 years ago by Devon Ryan91k

Hi @Devon--that's great! Just to clarify: is this for the tophat code, the bowtie2 code, or the conda recpie?

ADD REPLYlink written 2.7 years ago by ariel.balter140

This is the conda recipe, so what you get with conda install tophat. This will hopefully no longer work at all in python3 (you should get some sort of "no such package" error), though I haven't checked.

Looks like it is still trying:

I've asked one of the bioconda core people to check into this. My update isn't even appearing yet under python 2.7!

ADD REPLYlink written 2.7 years ago by Devon Ryan91k

OK, the normal python3 sorts of errors. I'll fix my PR and merge it in today after talking to the core folks about what to do with the python3 packages already available in conda.
