Hi

I have an urgent question about running rMATs, I usually running rMATs after running STAR alignment with original fastq files.

However, I'm unable to find the original fastq files recently, and I need to use the bioinformatic tools to detect novel and annotated events, I'm wondering if I can use the pseudoalignments bam file from Kallisto to run rMATs? or if there are any suggestions?

Thank you!!

No, you can't do that with kallisto's bam files. For one, kallisto (by default) doesn't map to introns which is required by rMATs.

You could probably use some exon-based/transcript-based method for differential exon usage or isoform switching. See https://bioconductor.org/packages/devel/bioc/vignettes/IsoformSwitchAnalyzeR/inst/doc/IsoformSwitchAnalyzeR.html#are-there-different-approaches-to-analysis-of-alternative-splicing

Honestly though, just try to get the original FASTQ files ASAP.
