Figure 2

The effect of a gene model on the mapping summaries for 16 tissue samples (read length=75 bp). The RefGene and UCSC consistently have the highest percentage of uniquely mapped reads; while the percentage of non-uniquely mapped reads is much higher in Ensembl. Without a gene model (indicated in pink) in the mapping step, a constant 6% of reads become unmapped.
