  1. Dear Yanting,

    I think the error is related to the issue reported BARNA-288 - Getting issue details... STATUS

    Please see if running the program with a fully qualified path removes the error.



    1. Dear Micha,
      Thanks very much for your quick reply.
      I have tried to run the astalavista with a fully qualified path, like this:
      [ytshen@IGDBTIANLAB bin]$ /home/ytshen/tools/astalavista-3.1/bin/astalavista -t asta -i /home/ytshen/analysis_data/cufflinks/2013-4-9/coty_default/final_parameter/transcripts.gtf -o test.asta
      but I got the same errors again.
      Please pay attention to that do not like the reporter you quote before, it seems that I can launch the astalavista and get the result finally. It just some error warnings before launch the astalavista.
      Look forward for your help! Thank you very much!
      All the best
      Yanting Shen
      1. Hi,

        turns out it is indeed another problem. We are looking into this right now ( BARNA-304 - Getting issue details... STATUS )

        1. Hi,

          Thank you very much, Maybe you can inform me when the problem resolved. 

  2. Hi Yanting,

    yes indeed, the phenomenon was actually introduced when integrating the splice site scorer functionality in AStalavista version 3.1. However, in my tests the warning had no influence on the results produced by the program. If you do not use splice site scoring ou may equivalently also use version 3.0 of the program which does not show the warning.

    As ticket BARNA-304 has been resolved, we are to build an update release soon. 

    1. Hi Micha,

      Thank you very much! Looking forword to the updata release.
