I ran Tophat and near the end of the run it gave the following error:

[2012-09-28 15:51:58] Mapping left_kept_reads.m2g_um to genome mm9 with Bowtie 
[2012-09-28 16:08:04] Searching for junctions via segment mapping

[2012-09-28 16:15:08] Processing bowtie hits
[2012-09-28 16:26:43] Reporting output tracks

It then warned that it couldn't remove all the temporary files. Any idea what might be happening? I have no idea what the "open: No such file or directory" error means. It must not be finding some files but I cannot tell which.

Really sorry for hijacking this thread, but I am facing the exact same error. Tried using relative or fullpath for the output destination but without any change. This error is persistant. The only relevant log I think is this:

bowtie.left_kept_reads.m2g_um_unmapped.log

Warning: Could not find any reads in "-"

reads processed: 0

reads with at least one reported alignment: 0 (0.00%)

reads that failed to align: 0 (0.00%)

No alignments

Any ideas?

Thank you very much in advance

You have the answer in your post already. The very next line after "open: No such file or directory", tells you exactly which file is missing

Error: bam2fastx failed to open BAM file /mydata/leftkeptreads.m2gumunmapped.bam

Your file

leftkeptreads.m2gumunmapped.bam

is missing.

OK, but since this file is generated by Tophat and not by me, how can I detect why it is missing and how to fix it?

Tophat is trying to find this missing file in /mydata folder. Can you give the fullpath of the folder from where you are running Tophat? Are you on Unix or windows machine?
