Table 1 Error rates for different methods under comparison

From: BM-BC: a Bayesian method of base calling for Solexa sequence data

Data sets Number of wrong calls (percentage)
  BM-BC Solexa B-I Rolexa
1 1,340 (3.7%) 1,455 (4.0%) 1,428 (4.0%) 1,601 (4.4%)
2 1,354 (3.7%) 1,514 (4.2%) 1,426 (4.0%) 1,432 (4.0%)
3 1,385 (3.8%) 1,438 (4.0%) 1,444 (4.0%) 1,345 (3.7%)
  1. The number of wrong calls for the methods under comparison: the proposed BM-BC, Solexa calls from the Bustard method, the method in Bravo and Irizarry (2010) (B-I), and the Rolexa method. Three subsets of Solexa sequencing data for a bacterial phage were selected, each with 1,000 colonies. Each row contains the number of missed calls (out of 36,000) for a subset. The bold entry in each row indicates the method with the fewest wrong calls.
