Hi !

After version 2.5 of KisSplice, the new version of KisSplice2RefGenome seems nice, but I can't manage to launch it. Typically, I would launch the previous version with :

kissplice2refgenome \
    -a /media/***/gencode.v19.annotation.gtf \
    -o /media/***/event.txt \
    --pairedEnd True \
    --readLength 76 \

(** obviously to hide the path)

With the 1.2.3 version, it worked perfectly. But exact same command with 2.0 give me :

kissplice2refgenome: error: unrecognized arguments: /media/***/MDS_mapped2GRCh37Aligned.out.sam

I tried to move the sam to the same repertory as KisSplice2RefGenome (to remove the path), remove the ".out", put the command on a single line, but no.

Maybe I have missed something really obvious, but the --help doesn't indicate any change to how to indicate the input file, so I don't really know.

Does anybody have the same problem ?

Thanks in advance for your time and help !

EDIT: I should mention that this happened after I have installed 2.0.0 with python, and NOT python3. Which might be why this doesn't work. Still, it doesn't work either with python3, and as I am absolutely not fluent in python... :

Hi Audric,

I have effectively missed something, guess I wasn't attentive enough ! Not only does it work, but it is also far quicker and the number of (standard) events has increased by a good 20% (compared to the 1.2.3 version) on one of my smallest cohort. I definitely need to check that.

Thank you very much !

Hi David !

The problem is the --pairedEnd parameter. Since version 2.0.0, users should not explicitly set this parameter to True, adding --pairedEnd is enough. The following command line should work :

kissplice2refgenome \
-a /media/***/gencode.v19.annotation.gtf \
-o /media/***/event.txt \
--pairedEnd \
--readLength 76 \

Does this fix solve your problem ?
