FPKM distributions of complete and partial transcripts. The ‘=’ classcode is originally assigned to the transcripts that have complete match intron chain with a reference transcript and they can be treated as complete transcripts while the ‘c’ classcode is attached to the transcripts contained by reference and they are defined as partial assemblies. The complete (‘=’, red curve) and partial (‘c’, blue curve) transcripts assembled from the read alignments represent distinguishable FPKM distributions from each other (∼29.67 vs ∼4.86).
