bsub [LSF options] "STAR [STAR options]"
Here you need to replace [STAR options] with STAR command line options (please have a look at the STAR manual for getting a list of all command line options) and [LSF options] with LSF parameters for the resource requirements of the job. Please find a documentation about the parameters of bsub on the wiki page about the batch system.
