Hi Jeremy,


I tried to run cufflinks to assemble transcripts after running Tophat against my own reference. This error was encountered.


What was wrong?  How to fix it?

Warning: Using default Gaussian distribution due to insufficient paired-end reads in open ranges.  It is recommended that correct paramaters (--frag-len-mean and --frag-len-std-dev) be provided.
