Cuffmerge2 merges together several Cufflinks assemblies. It also handles running Cuffcompare. The main purpose of this script is to make it easier to make an assembly GTF file suitable for use with Cuffdiff.

Cuffmerge2 provides an interface to Cuffmerge 2+ to merge reference GTF files for multple Cufflinks outputs. This step is recommended by the authors of the Cufflinks package.
