Robustness to noise. Left panel: The creation process for the five synthetic datasets to assess the ability of GMACS to maintain homogeneous clusters in the face of decreasing information content is depicted. The MYB_PH3 motif is combined with a motif generated by randomly sampling columns from the JASPAR database resulting in a much more degenerate motif. Right panel: The ability of GMACS to produce structurally homogeneous clusters remains robust, maintained at a level above 0.6 even when information content for each motif in the dataset has been significantly reduced.
