From: EXCAVATOR: detecting copy number variants from whole-exome sequencing data

Figure 3

Summary of the results obtained by EXCAVATOR on the 1000 Genomes Project samples. (a), (b), (c), (d) Overlap between the set of CNVs detected by the four methods and the CNVs annotated in the DGV (a, b) and in the NCBI dbVar (c, d) with the two overlapping criteria: 10% (a, c) and 50% (b, d). (e), (f), (g) Precision-recall plots of the comparison between the CNV events detected by the four methods included in this comparison and the CNVs previously reported by McCarroll et al.[7] and Conrad et al.[5]. Light grey curves represent F-measure levels (harmonic mean of precision and recall). (e) Results for all variants. (f) Results for common CNVs. (g) Results for rare CNVs.
