So I inspected the GTF and surfing BioC I found the issue of gene_id being equal to transcript_id in Ensembl_UCSC gtfs, and I remembered you advised us to use the one from Ensembl ftp, hence, If I understood well the error, that meant we were counting only genes with just one transcript, hence all the others, ht-seq count (-m union -t exon) with overlapping exons, were losing those reads, or at least they were given only the reads of the "unique" exons. Indeed, the histogram looked very left shifted with most of the features with a mean (in 9 samples, 3 groups) less than 10. > > Then I downloaded the new GTF from Ensembl, and I encountered the second problem. Again discussed in the past here and elsewhere about chromosome names not beginning with 'chr'.

However I realised looking at one of our genes of interest, which "had" to be expressed, that the counts were 0. [snip] This does not answer your question, but perhaps you might like to try an alternative "all-bioc" approach to counting reads over genes. This is outlined in the vignette to the parathyroidSE data package here: http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/data/experiment/vignettes/par athyroidSE/inst/doc/parathyroidSE.pdf Look at section 4 (counting reads in genes), which uses the GenomicRanges::summarizeOverlaps method. You should also read through how the different summarizeOverlaps parameter affect the total number of reads that are tallied per "feature," which is outlined here: http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/vignettes/GenomicRanges/ inst/doc/summarizeOverlaps.pdf HTH, -steve -- Steve Lianoglou Computational Biologist Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Genentech

Hi Jose not sure what is going on. The best might be to take one of these reads (find the read ID in IGV, then grep for it in the SAM file) and first check whether it might be multiply aligned ("NH" field). Then, make a mini SAM file with only this read and feed it to hseq-count, with the "--samout" option, to see what the script does with it. Simon
