Side-by-side comparison of canonical splice junctions identified by each package, reconciling differences between SpliceGrapher and the other two packages for A. thaliana (top half) and V. vinifera (bottom half). For each species we show the number of canonical splice junctions each package found recapitulated in the RNA-Seq reads. For Supersplat and TopHat we also show the number of junctions each shares with SpliceGrapher and the number of novel junctions for which SpliceGrapher's classifiers identified either the donor site or the acceptor site as a false positive.
