Hi,I understand that STAR aligner can recognise splicing junctions and are usually used for RNAseq data. But I'm also curious whether it will treat circular RNAs like a linear transcript and feature it in the sam file (output). Is this true? If not, then how exactly will it treat circRNA? Ty.

Hello csijst!

We believe that this post does not fit the main topic of this site.

The STAR aligner is not a Bioconductor package. Please contact the author of STAR if you have questions.

For this reason we have closed your question. This allows us to keep the site focused on the topics that the community can help with.

If you disagree please tell us why in a reply below, we'll be happy to talk about it.

Well, I do agree that STAR isn't part of the Bioconductor package. But I assumed that the 'star' tag was part of the said program. Thus the entry.

The developer does not reply promptly, and was actually thinking of getting a faster response from the experienced users.

I will understand if you wish to close the question.

Thank you for your consideration.
