Rand indices in simulations with various number of observations. Simulation sample size versus Rand indices between inferred and simulated module assignments from different network inference methods. increase as the simulation data set contains more samples. Non-linear measures, especially polynomial and spline regression models, outperform other measures as sample size increases.
