  1. True-positive rates TPR n estimated using LOOCV for the top n = 5, 10, 15, 25 ranked candidates using our prioritization approach with single evidence type association scores and combined association scores. STRING assocation scores with a value less than the cut-off value were not taken into account. With a cut-off value of zero all associations contribute to the overall ranking score. Maximal TPR across all combinations of predefined values for the pI and Mw range is reported. For each value of n the highest TPR is indicated in bold.
