Table 1 Motif recovery performance summary for NestedMICA and MEME. Numbers shown correspond to the correctly recovered number of motifs by NestedMICA (NMICA) and MEME for each test set, each of which contains 7 motifs, for the single-motif spiking tests. Motifs recovered for set 1 can be seen on Figure 2, while the results for the other tests performed using sets 2 and 3 can be found in Additional Files 1, 2. A motif is considered as correctly recovered if the average cartesian distance per residue position between the recovered motif and the original motif that was spiked is < 0.3 (see Methods).
