PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

Some remarks

Fabio Fabris   (2013-12-10 14:36)  University of Kent

In the 16th page authors state that: "In this case [highly connected genes for both training and testing], there is a clear advantage of using NHMC with �� = 0 over using NHMC with �� = 0.5."

However, it seems that the second part of table 2 (which should be split in two different tables imho) presents the opposite.

Also, the values on the vertical axis of Figure 2 (varying between 0.2 and 0.4) are inconsistent with the values depicted on the tables.

Thank you!
