False discovery curves. Representative false discovery curves, depicting the number of false positives encountered among the T top-ranked genes by the eleven evaluated methods, for T between 0 and 1,500. In all cases, there were 5 samples per condition.

Some of the curves do not pass through the origin, since many genes obtained the same ranking score and had to be called simultaneously.
