First of all, I would thank you for providing support to all STAR users.
I am interested on sensory receptor genes and I studied their expression by means of RNA-Seq in several insect vectors trying to identify if some of them are differentially expressed. Most of these genes have similar sequences due to their evolutive origin (mainly gene duplication events). For this reason, and in order to identify accurately those sensory genes that are differentially expressed, I usually use --outFilterMultimapNmax 1 during the mapping process. Do you think that is it correct or do you recommend other value for this parameter?
Thanks for your time and help.
