Search efficiency in the E. coli genome. ROC curves for different IT-based binding site search methods attempting to locate known LexA, Fur, CRP and Fis sites on the E. coli genome. The plot is scaled to encompass a 1/10 true to false positive ratio for the transcription factor with the largest number of known sites (CRP; 210 sites). Vertical arrows indicate this same ratio for all transcription factors.
