[…] can be used to create consensus gene sequences. however, since both programs perform their clustering based on all transcript sequences, paralogous genes may be erroneously merged. in contrast, corset (davidson and oshlack, 2014) identifies sequence similarity between transcripts by identifying multi-mapped reads resulting from re-mapping of reads against the reconstructed transcriptome. […]

[…] 219,831 transcripts with average length of 771 bp and n50 of 1302 bp (table 2). the length distribution of transcripts is showing in s1 fig. the de novo assembled transcriptomes were clustered by ‘corset’, which is a method and software for obtaining gene-level counts from any de novo transcriptome assembly [32]. after clustering by corset, a total of 139,863 clusters were obtained, […]
