ID: transcript (mRNA) ID that the program predicted LENGTH: transcript length Z: the number of expected fragments that the program assigned to the transcript FPKM: normalized expression level (Fragments Per Kilobase of exon per Million mapped fragments) THETA: estimated parameter (transcript abundance), essentially Z divided by total mapped reads.
You can visualize the optimized alignment by ASE-TIGAR as follows: samtools sort sample_out.txt.opt.bam sample_opt_sorted samtools index sample_opt_sorted.bam Please start IGV_2.3.14 or later, and load refMrna.fa as Genome, and sample_opt_sorted.bam. You can look at the optimized alignment of reads on each transcript isoform.
