Table 6 Comparisons of different methods on human data

From: Identifying conserved protein complexes between species by constructing interolog networks

Method # Predicted complexes # Matched predictions Precision # Gold standard conserved complexes # Detected conserved complexes Recall (of conserved complexes)
COCIN 71 36 50.7% 118 78 66.1%
CMC 1389 156 11.2% 118 66 55.9%
HACO 1290 80 6.2% 118 36 30.5%
MCL 631 45 7.1% 118 24 20.3%
  1. Predicted complexes: resulting network clusters
  2. Matched predictions: resulting network clusters that match with benchmarks
  3. Precision = #matched prediction/#predicted complexes
  4. Recall = # detected conserved complexes/# gold standard conserved complexes
  5. One predicted complex of COCIN can match with many benchmark complexes, this explains for #detected conserved complexes > #matched predictions (as illustrated in Figures 5-8)
