From: TopHat2: accurate alignment of transcriptomes in the presence of insertions, deletions and gene fusions

Figure 4

The number of read and spliced-read alignments from TopHat2, using different realignment edit distances and no realignment. Edit distances of 0, 1, and 2 were used. As TopHat2 allows more realignment from no realignment to 2 to 1 to 0, the number of read alignments and spliced-read alignments increases, so that the differences in the numbers of read alignments from TopHat run with different realignment edit distance are mostly explained by the increase in the number of spliced-read alignments.
