Table 2 Number of AS events detected per technology, alongside statistical significance of events against distinct thresholds

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

Matched Events

Expression Threshold Detected Events FDR Expression Threshold Detected Events FDR for significant
Junction coverage > 6 FPKM 2973 2.44e-4 Signal > 50% 1016 1.46e-3
Junction coverage > 2 FPKM 10,617 4.56e-4 Signal > 25% 3297 1.99e-3
