Now we want to do also n=3 in RNA-Seq, will 20M clean read of PE2x100 have similar or better coverage than the array data?

Thanks

Long, long ago, when we did SOLiD runs, an ABI applications specialist told us 5M reads was equivalent to an Affy Chip. But I don't know what that was based on.
Possibly there are comparisons in the literature?
