  1. Spearman’s Rank Correlation was calculated between gene model expression values in synthetic read data and ‘Bowtie’-based methods for estimation of gene model expression levels. Three ‘Bowtie’-based methods for gene model expression were considered, using gene model expression values from synthetic RNAseq data of 50, 25, 10, 1, and 0.5 million total 46-mer sequence reads.
