Test-drive the GATK tools and Best Practices pipelines on Terra

Check out this blog post to learn how you can get started with GATK and try out the pipelines in preconfigured workspaces (with a user-friendly interface!) without having to install anything.

Everything looks "fine" when running RNA-SeQC, but RPKMs of all genes are zero! Could anyone help me

Could anyone help me? I used STAR to do mapping and got the orded BAM file, and have added RG tag, Markdupicate and Index by picard successfully. But encounter problem when running RNA-SeQC(1.19).Everything in log file looks "fine" , but RPKMs of all genes are zero! I check the gtf and reference carefully, but they look good. Could anyone see any error in my log information? Thanks in advance!
