Table 3 Comparison of coverage estimates obtained using different methods

From: Estimation of CpG coverage in whole methylome next-generation sequencing studies

  Mean SD Ratio Correlation
Paired-end 6.168 3.282 100.0% 1.000
Read count (50 bp) 1.824 1.357 29.6% 0.608
Read count extended (150 bp) 5.385 3.036 87.3% 0.934
Individual kernel function 6.207 3.287 100.6% 0.999
Mean paired-end function 6.202 3.331 100.6% 0.986
Mean kernel function 6.251 3.356 101.4% 0.986
  1. Note: Ratio is mean divided by mean of paired-end data and Correlation is the correlation between coverage calculations with the method listed in the row versus those obtained from the paired-end data.
