STAR-Fusion 1.4.0

STAR-Fusion uses the STAR aligner to identify candidate fusion transcripts supported by Illumina reads. STAR-Fusion further processes the output generated by the STAR aligner to map junction reads and spanning reads to a reference annotation set.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load STAR-Fusion/1.4.0-foss-2018a-Perl-5.26.0

An example command to include in your job script:

STAR-Fusion --genome_lib_dir </path/to/your/CTAT_resource_lib> \
       --left_fq <reads_1.fq> \
       --right_fq <reads_2.fq> \
       --output_dir <star_fusion_outdir>

Noting the use of the line continuation character \.

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.
