  1. The table shows some error measures regarding the copy number event estimation obtained with several methods on datasets A and B. While (, ) outperforms the other methods on dataset A, on B it obtains a poor estimation of the copy number events in comparison with the other methods. On dataset B, the methods which achieve the lowest errors are: (), (), () and ().
