Question: Mapping Trinity assembled transcript back to reference genome with annotation

Hi, I am new to RNA-seq, I am using Trinity genome guided assembly, and I could really use some help. I'd appreciate that a lot.

My pipeline is the following:

1) map my raw fastq data to mm10 using STAR.

2) feed trinity with the file STAR generated, using genome guided assembly

3) Trinity spit out assembled transcript like this :

>TRINITY_GG_1_c0_g1_i1 len=456 path=[0:0-455]

4) Then I use gmap to map those reads back to reference genome, it gave me:

Alignments: Alignment for path 1:

+chr1:4147901-4147963  (1-63)   100% <-   ...648...  0.994, 0.859
+chr1:4148612-4148744  (64-196)   100% <-   ...15110...  0.999, 0.984
+chr1:4163855-4163941  (197-283)   100% <-   ...6263...  0.996, 0.999
+chr1:4170205-4170377  (284-456)   100%

My Question GMAP didn't give me which transcript is this, but only the genomic coordinate, my goal is to find de-novo transcript which is not presented on the reference GTF file, therefore, I hope there is some tools, which I can annotate my transcript, then whichever left (those didn't get to map to a reference transcript, I can investigate them more)

This is my first time post question here, I apologize in advance if there is anything inappropriate.

If you have a reference annotated genome and want to discover new transcripts, then you should be using Stringtie.

Thank you very much for your kind reply. Can I feed StringTie the transcript assembled by trinity? Or it is better use HISAT2 + StringTie?

I am not sure if you can feed a mapping of the Trinity transcripts to StringTie. But even if possible, I would think it is better to follow the documented workflow of mapping raw reads - I am sure StringTie can use the information of mapping depth and quality to access transcript support, and this information would be lost if you mapped the assembled Trinity transcripts.
