Hello All, I am having difficulty understanding and executing the tophat usage after looking up the help. its just not as simple as running other aligners like bowtie and I am needing help. below is the command I put together from what I understand. ( my reads are single end btw). can someone tell me what I am doing wrong and how the command is usually written so it execute without complain?

tophat --GTF Genome.Bw2.index.fa --library-type fr-unstranded --num-threads 24 Genome.Bw2.index Male.fastq --output-dir

Error message

Consider other alternative tools such as HISAT2 instead of Tophat.

Thanks for your responses and suggestions. I figured the command works if the last imputes on the command include a reference genome index folled by the fastq RNAseq file. Again thank you

here is a link to the manual for tophat TOPHAT2 MANUAL

I highly suggest you use hisat2 over tophat though. It is a much better option.

See if making the output directory (and tmp directory within it) changes your luck. Do this in a directory where your .fasta file is.

mkdir -p tophat_out/tmp
