Cuffdiff takes several cufflinks results merged by cuffmerge and computes differential expression in the context of the merged data.

# a typical cuffdiff command.

cuffdiff -p 8 -q -u -N -o name-diff_out -b mm9.fa -L G1,G2 merged_asm/merged.gtf g1-s1/accepted_hits.bam,g1-s2/accepted_hits.bam g2-s1/accepted_hits.bam,g2-s2/accepted_hits.bam

In this example, 8 threads max are attributed to the job, the output is set to quiet, multi-read-correction is applied (-u), and upper-quartile-norm is requested (-N). For clarity, two groups are here compared and labelled (-L) 'G1' and 'G2'. Each group comprizes two samples (replicate) named g?-s1 and g?-s2 and their corresponding 'accepted_hits.bam' files are provided as a comma-separated list.

Note that no-space are added near the comma and that the two groups are separated by one space.

The result will be a new folder named 'name-diff_out' and containing a number of files describing the result of computing differential expression between the two sample groups.
