Table 6 Distribution of percentage of fusion reads in nominated pro-neoplastic transcripts in breast cancer

From: De novo assembly and characterization of breast cancer transcriptomes identifies large numbers of novel fusion-gene transcripts of potential functional significance

Fusion type Min% Max% Average% Median%
Pro-neoplastic 0.55318 33.13 12.00 8.93
  1. Percent of fusion reads was calculated as using fusion (chimeric) transcript reads divided by total reads (fusion read count + wild-type (non-fusion) 5′-gene read count + wild-type (non-fusion) 3′-gene read count) (see Methods). RSEM estimated normalized read counts were used. Metrics shown in table are calculated using read counts of pro-neoplastic transcripts in breast cancer samples
