Table 2 Pairwise platform gene classification based on susceptibility to alternative splicing

From: A detailed transcript-level probe annotation reveals alternative splicing based microarray platform differences

Platform A Platform B Common Genes Equal A = B Disjoint A B = Ø A\B ≠ Ø B\A ≠ Ø

  1. Let A be the set of transcripts a probe(set) on platform A targets
  2. Let B be the set of transcripts a probe(set) on platform B targets
  3. Equal A = B : Number of genes in which platform A and B target equal transcript sets.
  4. Disjoint A B = Ø: Number of genes in which platform A and B target disjoint transcript sets.
  5. A\B ≠ Ø: Platform A and B target the same gene, but platform A targets extra transcripts that B does not.
  6. B\A ≠ Ø: Platform A and B target the same gene, but platform B targets extra transcripts that A does not.
  7. Note: The total number of classified genes can exceed the number of common genes because a gene may be a member of both A\B = Ø and B\A = Ø.
