Hi,

Recently I have been evaluating gene expression levels using STAR software. Regarding the counts in the ReadsPerGene.out.tab table, I am confused about the equation of N_unmapped (12935190), N_multimapping(6553338), N_noFeature(4320607), N_ambiguous(1013776) and the sum of readspergene (12473764).

The additional file is the Log.final.out as shown below. Could you help to correlate all of the reads information? Better in equations.
