FDRs on synthetic samples. Overall false discovery rates on synthetic samples, broken down by normal cell contamination level and called/real copy number. Cell colour represents the amount of incorrectly made calls when the predicted copy number (y-axis) is different from the actual copy number (x-axis). There are no copy number 0 regions in the samples, but some methods make copy number 0 calls. The total FDR for a certain method and contamination is indicated in the lower right corner of each plot, and is the sum of all the corresponding cell values. Good performance is reflected in the symmetry and narrowness of the wrong call distribution along the correct call diagonal. Departure from such symmetry evidences some kind of bias.
