failed executing genemark

Post by Ambreen »

I am trying to run braker for my mouse data. i have got my .fa file from ensemble and have bam files. when i run braker, the following error shows up:
NEXT STEP: execute GeneMark-ET
failed to execute: perl /media/ambreen/D206B4E906B4CFA9/gm_et_linux_64/gmes_petap/ --sequence=/home/ambreen/braker/newone7/genome.fa --ET=/home/ambreen/braker/newone7/hintsfile.gff --cores=4 1>/home/ambreen/braker/newone7/GeneMark-ET.stdout 2>/home/ambreen/braker/newone7/errors/GeneMark-ET.stderr

gmes.log file created shows error at the following line:
/media/ambreen/D206B4E906B4CFA9/gm_et_linux_64/gmes_petap/ : [Thu Oct 5 12:20:25 2017] /media/ambreen/D206B4E906B4CFA9/gm_et_linux_64/gmes_petap/ --cfg /home/ambreen/braker/newone6/GeneMark-ET/run.cfg --section start_ATG --format INI

/media/ambreen/D206B4E906B4CFA9/gm_et_linux_64/gmes_petap/ : [Thu Oct 5 12:20:25 2017] error

when i tried to run seperately, it showed the following error:
perl --ET /media/ambreen/D206B4E906B4CFA9/Mouse/TG_TS_RNA/ali
gnment/TS9/hints.gff --sequence /media/ambreen/D206B4E906B4CFA9/Mouse/genome/mousechr2.fa --et_score 10
error, no valid sequences were found
error on call: /media/ambreen/D206B4E906B4CFA9/gm_et_linux_64/gmes_petap/ --cfg /media/ambreen/D206B4E906B4CFA9/gm_et_linux_64/gmes_petap/run.cfg --section donor_GT --format DONOR

i am stuck here. Any help will be appreciated. T

For issues that reproducibly exist with running GeneMark outside of BRAKER, please contact the GeneMark team (, directly.
