Average precision-recall curves of several search methods. FAST was the most accurate search method. SARST ranked third and achieved precisions ~4% lower than CE, which was the second most accurate method in this experiment. Linear encoding methods TOPSCAN [17], YAKUSA [21] and 3D-BLAST [22] describe protein structures as strings. ProtDex2 transforms protein structures into indexes [30]. These curves of ProtDex2 and TOPSCAN were adapted from Aung and Tan's report [30]. The precision percentage is plotted on the y-axis and the recall percentage is plotted on the x-axis.
