Table 1 A sampling of the less common statistics calculated by Eval when comparing the output of TWINSCAN and GENSCAN on the "semi-artificial" gene set used in [1] to the gold standard annotation. Standard statistics such as gene and exon sensitivity and specificity are also calculated but are not shown.
