For each element, the table lists how many compounds were predicted to provide that element (Input nutrients), how many of those had experimental evidence against which they could be evaluated (Experimental evidence available, EV), and the results of that evaluation. A compound is a True Positive (TP) if it was predicted to provide that element and did so. A compound is a True Negative (TN) if it was predicted to not provide that element and actually did not. False Positives (FP) and False Negatives (FN) are also reported. The accuracy is obtained by dividing TP + TN by EV and multiplying by 100.
