Table 1 Differences between two clustering methods

From: RECLU: a pipeline to discover reproducible transcriptional start sites and their alternative regulation using capped analysis of gene expression (CAGE)


Original Paraclu


Threshold to discard clusters

Number of tags in the cluster

Tag per million (TPM) per base

Algorithm to calculate stabilities

Ratio of the maximum d to the minimum d

Sum of stabilities of accumulated clusters at the site

Evaluation of reproducibility



Consensus cluster

Extracting the largest cluster at each site

Clusters at the top and bottom of the hierarchy
