We compared the splice junctions that each package identified in RNA-Seq data to splice junctions inferred from ESTs aligned to A. thaliana and V. vinifera. Numbers represent the number of splice junctions from spliced alignments of RNA-Seq data that were also identified from alignments of ESTs (excluding junctions that are annotated in TAIR9). Despite performing a step of filtering of false positives, SpliceGrapher achieves a higher level of recall than TopHat, and only slightly lower than SuperSplat.
