Table 4 Alignment statistics of the NPC data

From: Are special read alignment strategies necessary and cost-effective when handling sequencing reads from patient-derived tumor xenografts?

  1. *For comparison, we also aligned all reads to the mouse reference.
  2. **These are the numbers of reads aligned to the human reference after discarding those aligned to the mouse reference.
