From: Exploring the potential of 3D Zernike descriptors and SVM for protein–protein interface prediction

Measure | Mathematical formulation | Comment |
---|---|---|

Accuracy | A \(=\frac {\text {TP}+\text {TN}}{\text {TP}+\text {TN}+\text {FP}+\text {FN}}\) | Indicates the fraction of correct predictions over the total: not very significant when dealing with imbalanced data. |

Precision | P \(=\frac {\text {TP}}{\text {TP}+\text {FP}}\) | Indicates the fraction of relevant instances among the retrieved ones. |

Recall | R \(=\frac {\text {TP}}{\text {TP}+\text {FN}}\) | Indicates the fraction of relevant instances that have been retrieved over the total relevant instances. |

F_{1} score
| F\(_{1} = 2 \times \frac {\mathrm {P} \times \mathrm {R}}{\mathrm {P} + \mathrm {R}}\) | It is the harmonic mean of precision and recall. |

Matthews correlation coefficient | MCC \(=\frac {\text {TP}\times \text {TN} - \text {FP}\times \text {FN}}{\sqrt {(\text {TP}+\text {FP})(\text {TP}+\text {FN})(\text {TN}+\text {FP})(\text {TN}+\text {FN})}}\) | Returns a value between −1 and +1: +1 represents a perfect prediction, 0 no better than random prediction and −1 indicates total disagreement between prediction and observation. |
