Table 1 Number and statistical significance of detected AS events using both RNA-seq and array technologies

From: Comparison of RNA-seq and microarray platforms for splice event detection using a cross-platform algorithm

Expression Threshold Detected Events Significant events FDR for significant
RNASeq
 Junction coverage > 6 FPKM 9277 4526 2.7e-4
 Junction coverage > 2 FPKM 34,961 13,780 4.7e-4
 Junction coverage > 2/3 FPKM 92,986 29,443 7.0e-4
Exon-junction arrays
 Signal > 50% 10,114 2385 9.2e-4
 Signal > 25% 31,506 6197 1.37e-3
 No threshold 92,405 11,761 3.45e-3
  1. for different expression thresholds, default filters are junction coverage greater than 2 FPKM for RNA-seq and probe-set signal greater than top 25% quantile for microarray
