  1. Accuracy was computed as the average of precision and recall. The first column in table shows the type of selection (gain, loss, or acceleration), and the value of the scaling parameter ρ. Smaller values of ρ correspond to stronger selection pressure, which is easier to detect. Results in bold show the larger accuracy value for each comparison between DivE and DLESS.
