Estimation accuracy for gene rates in the simulated data set. Log-log scatterplots showing model gene rates r k (x-axis) against error ratios \(\hat {r}_{k}/r_{k}\) (y-axis) for all genes in all 500 replicates (500 × 500=250,000 points per plot). Note that errors are measured with ratios, instead of differences. Colors (from blue to red) indicate increased density of points. The horizontal red line corresponds to no estimation error. Method names are shown at the top of each plot, followed by the mean absolute log-ratio between estimated and model gene rates (see Additional file 3)
