Hi everybody.

I solved the problem by explicitly specifying the version of python to run (python2.7 ..). This puzzles me as I created a specific conda environment for rMATS with python version 2.7. It now works properly.

Later I found this site:

It seemed to be a problem with the installation of rMATS through conda that has already been solved, so the solution now is to reinstall.

conda install -c bioconda rmats
