MEPs (megakaryocyte-erythrocyte progenitors) ROC. ROC curve showing the difference in sensitivity and specificity between the direct and indirect method for the task of classifying cell types (megakaryocyte, erythrocyte, and their corresponding progenitors, i.e., megakaryocyte-erythrocyte progenitors). The indirect method (shown in blue) outperforms the direct method (shown in red). The difference is statistically significant (p = 0.0035 for the paired t-test on the underlying ranks).
