The number of wrong calls for the methods under comparison: the proposed BM-BC, Solexa calls from the Bustard method, the method in Bravo and Irizarry (2010) (B-I), and the Rolexa method. Three subsets of Solexa sequencing data for a bacterial phage were selected, each with 1,000 colonies. Each row contains the number of missed calls (out of 36,000) for a subset. The bold entry in each row indicates the method with the fewest wrong calls.
