Change of similarity score with different α in Equation I. The frequency on the y-axis refers to the count of all gene set pairs falling into the category of a particular similarity range on the x-axis. Different α in Equation I have been used to calculate the similarity score. When α approaches 0, the distribution skewed to right with many false positive high similarity scores; when α approach 1, the distribution is too left-skewed failing to differentiate those low similarity scores apart.
