  • cuffcompare output statistic

    I got cuffcompare output something like below:

    # Query mRNAs : 250371 in 250079 loci (24778 multi-exon transcripts)
    # (282 multi-transcript loci, ~1.0 transcripts per locus)
    # Reference mRNAs : 39609 in 25783 loci (31869 multi-exon)
    # Corresponding super-loci: 14405
    #--------------------| Sn | Sp | fSn | fSp
    Base level: 53.1 38.8 - -
    Exon level: 0.7 0.5 20.3 15.7
    Intron level: 0.0 0.0 12.6 74.2
    Intron chain level: 0.0 0.0 0.2 0.3
    Transcript level: 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0
    Locus level: 0.0 0.0 0.3 0.0
    Missed exons: 97628/219296 ( 44.5%)
    Wrong exons: 164116/283022 ( 58.0%)
    Missed introns: 163909/193288 ( 84.8%)
    Wrong introns: 5780/32915 ( 17.6%)
    Missed loci: 10965/25783 ( 42.5%)
    Wrong loci: 154875/250079 ( 61.9%)

    Total union super-loci across all datasets: 170453
    (0 multi-transcript, ~0.0 transcripts per locus)

    I'd like to know the meaning of each statistic. Specifically, can I think that this data covers 14818 loci (calculated from 25783-10965 as shown in "Missed loci") at least one read?

    I tried to look around related thread, but I cannot find out. Sorry for redundant thread if there are already related ones.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have the same question. The 'base-level' Sn/Sp is reasonablly high, while the exon-level Sn/Sp is very low. Why like this?

      Dear sterding and yasu,

      Did any of you get the information about the topic you talk about above? I also confused about it.

        A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
        by seqadmin

        ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

        Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
        by seqadmin
        Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

        The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes

        AVITI from Element Biosciences: Latest Sequencing Technologies—Part 6
        by seqadmin
        Element Biosciences made its sequencing market debut this year when it released AVITI, its first sequencer. The AVITI System uses avidity sequencing, a novel sequencing chemistry that delivers higher quality data, decreases cycle times, and requires lower reagent concentrations. This new instrument reportedly features lower operating and start-up costs while maintaining quality sequencing.

        Read type and length
        AVITI is a short-read benchtop sequencer that also offers an innovative...
