ISM (Incomplete Splice Match) The query isoform has fewer external exons than the reference, but each internal junction matches the positions of the reference. The exact 5’ start and 3’ end can differ within the first/last exons.
NIC (Novel In Catalog) The query isoform does not have a FSM or ISM match, but is using a combination of known donor/acceptor sites.
