MAESTRO returns an error

I came across MAESTRO(Model-based AnalysEs of Single-cell Transcriptome and RegulOme) and wanted to use it on my data.

I have used the instructions on github and created a conda environment for MAESTRO.

Github link for MAESTRO:

However, I am encountering an error. Such as:

[Tue Jun 15 16:24:03 2021]

Error in rule scrna_analysis:

jobid: 2

output: Result/Analysis/MAESTRO_DiffGenes.tsv, Result/Analysis/MAESTRO_cluster.png, Result/Analysis/MAESTRO_annotated.png, Result/Analysis/MAESTRO.PredictedTFTop10.


python /home/k/anaconda3/envs/MAESTRO/lib/python3.8/site-packages/MAESTRO/ --species GRCh38 --input /home/k/sam/RAID/chr/L_M/A_P/hg38_2.1.tar.gz; Rscript /home/k/anaconda3/envs/MAESTRO/lib/python3.8/site-packages/MAESTRO/R/scRNAseq_pipe.R --expression ../QC/MAESTRO_filtered_gene_count.h5 --species GRCh38 --prefix MAESTRO --signature human.immune.CIBERSORT --outdir Result/Analysis --thread 10

(one of the commands exited with non-zero exit code; note that snakemake uses bash strict mode!)

I tried updating MAESTRO, but I still got the error. I was wondering if anyone encountered similar errors and if so, what steps did you follow so that the pipeline takes place without errors?

Extra question: For annotating the cells, MAESTRO uses built-in signatures like [human.immune.CIBERSORT]. But for my data, the immune cell types won't really fit well. However, I would still like to know the list of cell types that MAESTRO is using. How can I obtain that?

Thank you! (This is my first time posting so if the format is not okay, apologies)

Hi again! My problem was solved with the new release of MAESTRO 1.5.0 :)
