Simulated contamination of RNA-Seq reads. Sample contamination was simulated by mixing RNA-Seq reads from two different samples in controlled ratios. These intentionally contaminated samples’ RNA genotypes were then compared back to the DNA genotypes from which they were mixed. Specifically, a Purity Percentage of ‘10’ indicates that 10% of the reads in that RNA genotype file were sampled from the DNA sample to which it was compared.
