We had compared Aro to two published methods for identifying smFISH transcripts – threshold-picking [2] and FISH-quant [3]. The authors of FISH-quant were able to demonstrate that FISH-quant can perform substantially better than we were able to show. A revised fig. 5b (Fig. 1) shows the new FISH-quant results in green. Although it undercounts at high spot numbers compared to manual curation, it is far more reliable than we had shown, and any undercounting could be straightforwardly corrected. Figure 5b (below). Comparison…
