From: Computational analysis of core promoters in the Drosophila genome

  Threshold Sensitivity Specificity False-positive rate
McPromoter 0.98 19.5 69.2 1/106,647
  0.95 36.9 50.7 1/25,853
  0.9 52.1 40.3 1/12,016
  0.8 65.2 29.3 1/5,884
NNPP 0.99 21.7 13.5 1/6,227
  0.97 38.0 9.5 1/2,416
  0.92 53.2 6.3 1/1,096
  1. Shown are the sensitivity, which is defined as the percentage of actual TSSs that were correctly predicted, the specificity, which is defined as the percentage of predicted TSSs that correspond to actual TSSs, and the false-positive rate per base. The last three rows show the results obtained with the system NNPP, as reported in [11].
