Figure 2.

Prediction results for the distance criterion of 250 nucleotides. The light blue row shows the results of comparison of DBTSS+H-Invitational data to the manual HAVANA annotation. We used this as a reference to enable assessment of promoter predictor performance. The highlighted blue fields denote the score for the best performing promoter predictor(s). MaxTol is the maximum allowed mismatch between the predictions and the reference TSS locations. AE is the average mismatch of predictions relative to the closest TSS location from the HAVANA annotation. It is divided by 1,000 to scale for the graph presentation. DIP1 and DIP2 are two measures representing distance from the ideal predictor as defined in [10]. ASM is the average score measure as defined in [10]. The programs with names in red officially participated in the EGASP data submission. The results shown are for the MaxTol = 250 nucleotides.
