Hello,

I am trying to eventually run CollectRnaSeqMetrics using PICARD, with the following command:

find UWN_t2.bam -exec echo java -jar ~/workspace/rnaseq/student_tools/picard.jar CollectRnaSeqMetrics I={} O=picard/{}.RNA_Metrics REF_FLAT=$RNA_HOME/refs/sacCer3.ncbiRefSeq.ref_flat.txt STRAND=SECOND_READ_TRANSCRIPTION_STRAND RIBOSOMAL_INTERVALS=$RNA_HOME/refs/ref_ribosome.interval_list \; | sh

but I one of the lines of the output gave me the following warning:

WARNING CollectRnaSeqMetrics    The RIBOSOMAL_INTERVALS file, /home/user/workspace/rnaseq/refs/ref_ribosome.interval_list does not contain intervals

I looked back through some of the files, and noticed that my .dict file looks just like my ref_ribosome.interval_list file:

cat sacCer3.dict

I'm guessing this is not what the .dict file is supposed to look like. The yeast fasta file sacCer3.fa seems fine, and so I'm wondering why when I create the .dict file with:

java -jar ~/workspace/rnaseq/student_tools/picard.jar CreateSequenceDictionary R=sacCer3.fa O=sacCer3.dict

the output is

... and a strange file is created.

Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks

Why do you think that? The dict file looks fine to me.

Ok, I didn't realize that was what it was supposed to look like. But is the .interval_list file supposed to look the same?

When I create that file:

java -jar ~/workspace/rnaseq/student_tools/picard.jar BedToIntervalList I=ref_ribosome.bed O=ref_ribosome.interval_list SD=sacCer3.dict
INFO    2020-10-14 11:22:58 BedToInte

Is this right? Just wondering where I've gone wrong here

The interval list is supposed to contain all intervals from the source BED file. Do the chromosome names match between the BED and DICT files?

I think it's a problem with my ref_ribosome.gtf file, which I create before converting it to a .bed file. The original yeast reference gtf file (sacCer3.ncbiRefSeq.gtf) looks fine, but when I try to extract the location of the ribosomal sequences:

grep --color=none -i rrna sacCer3.ncbiRefSeq.gtf > ref_ribosome.gtf

...the file that gets created looks empty. Is there a problem with this command?

Thanks,

The command is fine, but if it results in an empty output, all that tells me is that there is no rrna string in the gtf file. Are you sure rRNA entries definitely contain the string rrna? I'm assuming you're looking for rRNA entries - let me know if that is not the case.

You were right - looking in the .gtf file, there were no rrna strings. I had to specifically pull out the gene names:

grep "RDN37\|ETS2\|RDN2\|ITS2\|RDN5\|ITS1\|RDN18\|ETS1\|RDN3" sacCer3.ncbiRefSeq.gtf > ref_ribosome_1.gtf

Thanks for your help with this. By the way, if this is not too much of a departure from this thread, what is the most common way to view the CollectRnaSeqMetrics output, for instance, in an Excel file? Thanks
