I don't know the format of the "sam" output.  If 
you get a p-value or q-value for each gene, sort 
the lists into the same order, and count the 
number of times both values are significant.


If you get a gene list from each method, there 
are is the set method, intersection, which will 
give the set of genes on both lists.  You can 
then just ask for the length of this list.
