Table 2 Performance summary for the programs in the multiple motif spiking tests. The "distances" columns refer to the cartesian distances between the reported motifs and the original ones which are shown in Figure 3. Motif names indicate length. Total abundance rates (in percent) for the spiked motifs are provided. In addition to cartesian distances, MCC values are given for both programs. For the MCC values of the original test motifs, refer to Figure 3.
